No site is too constrained, or project too challenging, to unlock the social and commercial value hidden within it. Difficult is made beautiful at RSHP, with solutions rooted in pragmatism and elevated by a shared passion for design that places the experiences of people first. Across the world, our team ethos is guided by our Approach, constantly evolving over decades to deliver impactful and uplifting architecture that leaves our cities and built environments better than we found them.
Designing for the future is in our DNA
We advocate design that is rooted in thoughtfulness, problem-solving and ingenuity. Our ‘people places’ respond to human needs for interaction and self-expression, and make for ease of update, upgrade and reuse. Beyond sustainable, we aim for regenerative.
“Our design solutions are never the same because we analyse every aspect of the site, looking at both the physical and the socio-economic contexts, to create a building that is an original, but entirely fitting, response.”

A strong social vision
Our distinct make-up makes us different. Social responsibility is at the heart of RSHP, with our professional beliefs enshrined in our Constitution since 1990. This includes ownership of our practice by a charitable trust, not individuals, and an ongoing philanthropic commitment determined by our employees.
Four decades of evolution
Our practice is founded as the Richard Rogers Partnership.
We became Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, reflecting the contributions of Graham Stirk, designer of the iconic Leadenhall Building, (our London base), and Ivan Harbour, designer of the Stirling prize-winning Maggie's West London Centre and Madrid airport's Terminal 4.
Today as RSHP
Our talented teams of 180 people support an ever-diverse range of projects from our studios in London, Paris, Melbourne, Sydney, Shanghai, Shenzhen and soon New York.
