Waterhouse is the continuation of two distinguished practices.
The first was started in 1854 by the great Victorian architect, Alfred Waterhouse. He is known for many important buildings, including The Natural History Museum London, Manchester Town Hall, The Prudential Buildings London, colleges at Oxford and Cambridge, and private houses.
George Adie started his practice in 1933 and soon became a leader in the Modern Movement with his designs for Atheneum Court at Princes Gate, and in the 1950s, with Stockwell Bus Garage, one of the very first post-World War Two grade II* Listed buildings.
The two partnerships merged in 1964 and are now a limited company, Waterhouse 1854 Limited. Waterhouse remains a trading name of Waterhouse 1854 Limited.
From Alfred Waterhouse and George Adie, outstanding architects of their time, comes our commitment to provide an excellent service for our clients today. From our unique heritage comes a commitment to an architecture that understands our clients' aspirations and responds to its physical and historical setting.
