Arkilab is a creative architectural design studio based in Manchester.
Arkilab | Taken from being true to our love for ‘architecture’, its origins and translation as ‘master builder’, we look to the original Greek combining form arkhi-, and its etymology – the start or lead of something new, which will always reflect our leadership and passion for this new venture, with design, innovation and technology at the forefront of our creative solutions.
Arkilab is a joint venture between architects and commercial/project strategists. We have collaborated from as far back as the year 2000, and since then we have worked together on, amongst other projects, PFI Schools, NHS Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) for primary healthcare facilities, and more recently as pioneers in design and detailing of the DfE’s offsite construction strategy for the early wave of Free Schools.
A new company, but not a new team, founding a bridge between design and commercial acumen in architectural practice.
