The leadership of Conran & Partners has completed a management buy-out of the international architecture and interior design practice.
Founded over 40 years ago by designer and visionary Sir Terence Conran, the firm has since been committed to improve people’s lives through good design. Over the years, it has evolved into an international studio with projects across urban regeneration, hospitality, residential and workplace – all under the guidance of a longstanding leadership.
Following the buy-out, the ownership of the practice is now shared between five Principals: Tina Norden, Simon Kincaid, Sebastian Conran, Katy Clarke and Tim Bowder-Ridger, all of whom have had key roles for many years and have been instrumental in the growth and development of the business. They now equally share the responsibility of leading the independent company as Principals, with the continued support of the board members and the London and Hong Kong studio teams.
The buy-out demonstrates the leadership’s belief in and commitment to the practice into the future. The Principals will continue to build on the legacy and ethos of Sir Terence Conran to achieve a seamless combination of architecture and interior design through carefully considered and collaborative design that addresses the needs and desires of the users, as well as the wider environment.
“Conran & Partners is first and foremost a creative business,” says Bowder-Ridger. “We pride ourselves on offering a distinctive boutique service to clients in the UK and internationally, whether we’re delivering architectural design for a new urban neighbourhood or creating unique interiors for a global hospitality brand. The new ownership of the practice is an incredibly exciting moment for us to build on a unique legacy and take the business forward with clear purpose.”
