    hello and welcome to hoopers

  • Collaborative design approach

    Hoopers Architects is established and experienced in delivering across the many different branches of architecture and includes expertises in the areas of leisure, healthcare, and education projects through to completion, with a long history with the ITFC in the leisure sector, understanding the importance of a compelling brand proposition and with the public sector partnerships such as the NHS. Our ‘rivers’ £30M health campus for the NSFT, delivered up to RIBA Stage 4, included a high level of work on topics we believe are important for everybody like food offerings, entrance narratives, public and private realms, permeability and health (exercise) all in collaboration with international architect PSYCH.RAUM / Thinkbuild from Berlin.

    We believe in a collaborative design approach and we embrace the significance of a cross fertilisation of ideas, thinking, and knowledge between projects and teams.

    Hoopers are experts in coordinating concept driven workshops, design streams and consultations. Workshops that help define a broad and flexible programmes with achievable goals, as well as a clear and shared understanding of the success criteria will be the foundation of any project.

    We can launch Concept Boards - a web-based Visual Collaboration Workspace as a tool to coordinate with key stakeholders. Our experience working in this format with the ITFC, NHS, local community groups, public clients and our design specialists as part of interdisciplinary teams has been central to achieving consensus led design solutions with high social value.

    We offer design and project management services throughout all stages of the RIBA process.
