THE STUDIO

Wignall and Moore is an architectural studio that includes architects, designers and makers. It produces expressive buildings, places and unique experiences that aim to bring joy. The practice offers original designs based on an appreciation and sensitivity to Architecture, Art and Theatre.

The studio has four principal members with a wide range of interests, skills and ambitions. They are supported by a team of specialist collaborators operating between their central London design studio and Yorkshire workshop. Wignall and Moore bridge the gap between designer and contractor, providing clients with original bespoke prototypes and construction details.

James trained in the UK, winning RIBA awards and nominations before qualifying as an architect at Cambridge in 2015.

Bradley grew up being trained by his father in the multi-generational family business of carpentry and building. After receiving his qualifications in Architecture and Engineering, Bradley continued pursing his love of craftsmanship and building by constructing several small scale projects across London. He is also involved in larger scale cultural and educational projects in his work with LSI Architects.

An interest in the connection between process and object and in the power that spaces can hold over the inhabitant are central to his architectural philosophy.

Bradley is particularly interested in the interplay of the delicate detail with the complexity of the big brief. His experience as an architect includes team leading on both large scale and boutique projects.
