New practice to start trading in spring

PLP's Fred Pilbrow

PLP’s Fred Pilbrow

Fred Pilbrow has left PLP Architecture to set up his second company in four years.

He was one of five former London-based KPF staff who left in 2009 to set up PLP Architecture after a failed attempt to complete a management buyout. The decision to set up a new practice cost PLP close to £3 million in compensation and legal fees.

PLP has around 100 staff but Pilbrow (pictured) is now setting up Pilbrow & Partners which is expected to be up and running by the spring.

Pilbrow is set to take some of PLP’s staff with him and work out of an office in Farringdon.

PLP, which recently submitted plans for its Crossrail over-site development at one end of Bond Street station in Mayfair, said the split was amicable.

    It will be exciting to see Pilbrow unconstrained by his partners. Will Fred be the new Norman?

  • Fred is one of the greatest architects I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He is one of the rare few who can do it all. Not the new Norman, he will be "the Fred". Congratulations Fred!

  • better late than never? Sincerest Congratulations to Fred and his doubtless superb and hand-picked Team. I've never met an Architect so deeply learned in the augurs of combining bold design with the near-psychosis of perfect and even joyful detail. A true next generation classic in the making.
