Caseyfierro Architects is a London based architectural practice established by Michael Casey & Victoria Fierro in 2006. We are passionate about the design and realisation of well-crafted buildings, focusing on the timeless qualities of space, light and material, irrespective of budget or scale. We believe it is important to design without preconception to allow a project to develop its own language and expression through collaboration with the client, the brief and the site given constraints.
We undertake projects within a wide range of typologies, and have collaborated with artists and industrial designers to provide studios and art galleries, together with private clients on residential projects in both urban and rural locations. At a macro scale the practice has developed urban strategies for the East End of London adopted by local government and masterplanned areas at a micro scale.
