Philip Meadowcroft. MA DipArch (Cantab)ARB RIBA
Phil Meadowcroft established his own practice in 1998 and Meadowcroft Griffin Architects in 2001. Previously he was a director at Eric Parry Architects, one of the UK’s leading design practices where he worked on a range of award winning projects including a new student accommodation building and Master's lodge at Pembroke College, Cambridge and a new office building at Stockley Park, Heathrow.
Throughout his career Phil has cultivated the dialogue between teaching and practice which underpins the strong theoretical and practical approach of Meadowcroft Griffin’s work. He was educated at Cambridge University where he was also a visiting diploma tutor from 1986 to 2003 teaching alongside Dalibor Vesely and Peter Carl. From this he has developed his interest and understanding of contemporary urban situations, the public life of the contemporary city, use of materials and light, which has informed the broad range of his work from urban design, public buildings and public spaces to one off houses and interiors. Since establishing Meadowcroft Griffin Architects Phil has been project director for large scale urban design projects including the Crystal Palace Park masterplan, Erith town centre, Poplar Riverside and Roman Road public spaces; residences and galleries including award winning houses on Portobello Road and Spaniards End, London; alongside development of the design ethos for the practices’ numerous Children’s Centres and Primary Schools. He is currently working with Stanhope on new proposals for Coram Campus in central London which includes a £10 million office building and new nursery.
Phil is a Design for London Design Advisor and CABE Enabler for Early Years, is a regular critic and lecturer at architectural schools and an external examiner at Manchester Metropolitan University.
