Creating designs that touch people's lives is the mission of LSI Architects, an Architect's Journal 100 award-winning practice. The company seeks to create sustainable, innovative, valuable and positive architecture that improves lives, builds communities and enhances society.

The practice, which employs about 60 people including architects, architectural technologists and support staff, is based in London and Norwich. It has extensive experience of undertaking projects for clients of all types, from big contractors, to those in the commercial and public-sector throughout the UK. The practice focuses on projects in London, Norfolk, Cambridge and the eastern region.

Staff are happy, highly trained and motivated to deliver the quality design and committed service they believe clients should expect. The fact that the majority of their turnover derives from repeat business is a testament to the quality of LSI Architects’ service.

The firm looks after its staff because it sees them as its greatest investment. It believes it is its responsibility to provide employees with the training and development they need to improve and inspire leadership throughout the practice.

LSI Architects has prioritised mental health and employee wellbeing. Working alongside mental health charity Mind and coaching provider Cake People Development, it provides staff with training to improve and inspire emotional intelligence, coaching and leadership skills.

The practice's contribution to the community includes sponsoring the Drawing Prize for Norwich University of the Arts's BA in architecture. It recently provided discounted rates for work on a new building for the Priscilla Bacon Hospice, in Norwich.
