Established in 2002, Featherstone Young is headed by Sarah Featherstone and Jeremy Young, who believe that good design is shaped by people. The wider team possesses a diverse range of expertise, which is harnessed through open project design ‘crits’ and a focus on creative thinking to ensure every project benefits from the practice’s maximum potential. Design quality is a fundamental tenant to all Featherstone Young’s work, which spans residential, educational, community, art and heritage commissions. The practice holds sense of place and local identity in high priority when it comes to a project’s context, making sure each of their buildings is distinct and responsive to its immediate surroundings. Environmental concerns are also taken into consideration, with Featherstone Young ranking social and environmental needs over economic profit.
