The Manser Practice

The Manser Practice

Location London


We are one of the UK’s most well established, award winning practices, with a reputation for elegant, cost effective, modern buildings across a range of sectors.

Established in the 1960s by Michael Manser, the Practice has offices in London and Leeds and has worked extensively throughout the UK, widely in Africa and on projects as far afield as China, the USA and Pakistan.

The range of our projects is deliberately kept as wide as possible. We design one off houses, larger housing schemes, both private and social, we design hotels, both large and small, student accommodation, ferry and cruise ship terminals, airports, train stations, offices, hospitals, embassies, restaurants and shops.

The principles that guided our work initially remain valuable today. The output is considered and practical producing innovative design solutions to clients requirements. For each project we develop a simple strategy that leads to resolution of the brief; a cost effective, innovative and sustainable solution.

Our client approached us to design a family home on a steeply sloping wooded site on the Isle of Wight overlooking the Solent, having bought the site cheaply as ground conditions were considered too difficult to build on.
