Stephen Richards


Stephen Richards is a Partner and owner of Gillespies. His intelligent and thoughtful design process, honed over 30 years of award-winning international practice, seeks to create external spaces that are in tune with their architecture and surroundings, deeply resonating with the history and character of the wider landscape and in balance with the systems that govern the natural world.

An advocate for landscape-led development, Stephen’s approach unlocks a more sustainable urban ecology, based on a combination of water conservation, active travel, flexible spaces, adaptive microclimates and the best use of limited resources – an approach that resonates throughout his portfolio, which includes the RIBA Stirling Prize shortlisted NEO Bankside and Macallan Distillery in Speyside, and the reimagination of St Helier Waterfront in Jersey.
