Architects, Masterplanners, Heritage Consultants

We are architects, masterplanners and heritage consultants. Our designs evolve from a deep understanding of our shared heritage and respond to the qualities of each place. We work to improve the lives of those who use our buildings, and the long-term sustainability of each project



We are a team of creative and collaborative individuals.

Founded in 1947, Purcell has grown to a cross-disciplinary practice of over 250 employee owners: the world’s largest team of heritage experts working in the built environment, based across 14 international studios. Meet our team, learn about our studio culture and how to join us.
