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 three 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.
