Hampshire County Architects Practice Information

Council Architects studio based in Hampshire, southern England

Strong reputation especially for a series of imaginative contemporary school designs.

Hampshire County Architects is the old name for Hampshire County Council Architecture, the in-house architecture and design department of HCC Property Services in Hampshire, UK. Over the years the multi-disciplinary team has developed a particular reputation for good school design and is also notable as the only sizeable public-sector county architecture studio remaining, following many years in the UK of outsourcing to the private sector. In 1991 County Architect Colin Stansfield Smith won a RIBA Gold Medal award.

The design team built its reputation in the 1980s under the leadership of architect Colin Stansfield Smith who arrived in 1974. He was County Architect until 1992. As a result of his work at Hampshire County Council, he was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Gold Medal in 1991. Colin Stansfield Smith was knighted in 1993.
