If you’re a ‘Spacer’, then you have a passion to make a difference.

Spacers are the collective term for all the people who work at Space Architects, all sharing a desire to enjoy what they do, as well as to make a difference in the lives of the people who use the spaces they design.

Established in 1957 by Arnold Waring and Len Netts, the firm was born out of a shared enthusiasm by the two men for community architecture. After setting up their first office in Newcastle, they designed local libraries, a swimming pool, the Civic Hall, much needed social housing, as well as many of the city landmarks that remain today. Their reputation for award-winning housing helped the firm moved into education and housing, followed by commercial developments in the 1990s.

Today, the core principals of making a difference to society remain at the very heart of the practice, combined with a firm belief in the possibilities great spaces can create.

Within Space Architects, the word ‘staff’ is banned, principally because of the belief it implies there’s a hierarchical structure which simply does not exist. The firm recognises that each and everyone of its people is different, unique and has their own story and needs.

As a values-driven business, diversity and inclusion is part of the culture, with a desire to create a balanced team with the right attitude and skills.

Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

With a set target to be a Zero Carbon business by 2023, Space Architects is committed to what it says is a challenging - but realistic - target. Alongside specific reductions in use in certain business areas, it will also incorporate tree planting and the use of photovoltaics on its building to achieve its goal.

My Company

Communication takes place throughout the week at the firm – from a Monday morning call with the CEO through to ‘Pizza Friday’ – where an hour-long overview of everything that has happened in the business during the week takes place. There is also ‘Thinking Thursday’, where a topic is discussed along with a learning activity.

Leadership

The leadership team demonstrates the company’s valued in what they do every day – through their behaviours and the decisions they make. Leaders invite a culture of open communication where any issues are discussed and addressed, and they try to ensure all colleagues feel valued.
