Sheppard Robson is a British firm that works across architecture, interior design and masterplanning. It was founded by husband and wife Richard Sheppard and Jean Shufflebottom in 1938, with Geoffrey Robson joining later in the 1950s. The firm’s completed projects include workspaces, education and healthcare buildings, residential schemes and retail projects.
The practice has three UK offices in London, Manchester and Glasgow. Its head office in London is based in Camden and accommodates over 250 staff. The 90-strong Manchester studio focuses on projects in northwest England and the 30-strong Glasgow studio covers projects across the breadth of Scotland.
Sheppard Robson also has its own interior-design group called ID:SR, which offers services including fit-outs, space analysis and workplace strategies.
