Our London office is in the One Croydon Tower. Instantly recognisable against the London Skyline and locally known as The 50p Building, we are perfectly located next to East Croydon train station with rail, tram and bus links to the whole Southeast. Our office is part of Sussex Innovation, whose members are ambitious companies that are innovators in their field – solving important problems in new ways.

Croydon is London’s second largest borough and the heart of an urban renaissance. It has aspirations and capacity for major residential and commercial growth as south London’s strategic hub. Croydon will be London Borough of Culture in 2023, with lots of plans in preparation for a celebration of the borough’s unique identity, diverse communities, and rich heritage.

BOXPARK is just a stone’s throw. It has the look and feel of a 21st century Covent Garden Piazza. Almost every cuisine imaginable is available under one roof. The venue also has a 2000-capacity space that hosts events throughout of the year with regular comedy nights, an indoor market and much, much, more.

WS have undertaken projects throughout London during our 30 year history, from our Surrey office in Reigate until we opened our London office in Croydon in 2019.

We cover a broad spectrum of planning and architectural projects within the Practice ranging from householder extensions to residential redevelopment, refurbishments and conversions, changes of use, commercial development, educational, leisure uses as well as masterplanning.

This selection of projects provides an insight into the diverse range of projects that have both challenged and excited us in equal measure. We are not bound by any one architectural style and seek pragmatic solutions that not only provide high quality designs but also bear in mind the individual circumstances of each and every client.

We are very proud of the high level of work consistently produced within our team and welcome the opportunity to visit completed projects to learn from the finished article and ensure a high quality for future designs.


Our team consists of qualified planners, architects, and architectural assistants.

The Planning Team is led by Spencer Copping, Planning Director, who joined the Practice as a Graduate Planner in 1999.

The Architectural Team is led by our Architectural Director and Croydon resident, Lee Barker, who has over 22 years’ experience in the private sector within London, advising clients across a broad spectrum of architectural projects.
