Practice Partner Focus: Rothelowman, Modscape, Urbis

Posted Thu 5th Jul 2018 | Helen Sweatman

The Open House Practice Partner program is an opportunity for companies within the architecture, design and planning sector to show their support for better-designed cities. Their financial support is a huge boost to the Weekend, and helps us to deliver our year-round programming. We can’t thank them enough for helping us to advocate for good design.


Every building designed by Rothelowman responds uniquely to a client’s needs, the site potential and the natural and urban environment. The foundation of their expertise is their people. Their leadership team has a broad range of backgrounds and specialisms, creating an environment of collaboration and participation.

Rothelowman’s intelligence-driven approach has been recognised for creating high-quality, groundbreaking designs across a range of sectors and project types. Year on year, they have secured industry awards for urban planning, high-density development, and interior design.
