Since then we have enjoyed almost 40 years as a family run and award winning Architectural practice, situated in Cheltenham at the heart of the Cotswolds in Glocestershire. Our national portfolio includes Housing, Retail, Offices, Leisure, Educational, Public & Local Authority Buildings, Landscape, small projects and strategic feasibility.

Our reputation has been established with a philosophy that good design is synonymous with well being and that excellence is never unprofitable. This approach involves varied and intelligent design solutions for both private and commercial clients…

Katy Stanley
Landscape Consultant

Katy co-founded Stanley Partnership in 1978. Since then she has dedicated her time in the practice to understand the delicate balance between our environment, our health and how we interact with the built and natural landscape.

This insight & passion for knowledge has given the practice, at times a very different view and on many occasions has meant the procurement of a project.


Bevis Stanley

Bevis has been with Stanley Partnership since late 1999 after many years in London with a large multidisciplinary practice. Over this time he has been integral in reimagining many areas of the Practice and has been committed to pursuing new and interesting architectural directions.

His integrity and love of good design have helped to maintain our long lasting reputation of building excellence and client service.
