Bill Soper

Bill is involved in many sectors but is best known for his work in the office, business space and student residential markets. He has been responsible for many of the practice’s landmark schemes across the UK, as well as speaking at numerous conferences, and his projects have included new building, refurbishment, urban renewal and comprehensive mixed-use schemes. Bill’s clients include owners, developers, funds and institutions as well as occupiers, including headquarters’ projects for Microsoft, Britannia Assurance and Dell.

The student team has been responsible for delivering over 30,000 bedrooms, developing and refining the student offer with notable schemes, including new brands such as Nido and Pure, as well as work for universities, operators and developers. More recently he has been involved in a range of residential schemes for a mix of tenures, including Build-to-Rent (B2R), and notable schemes like Teddington Riverside.

Bill is first and foremost an architect but also a qualified town planner. With this understanding he is able to take a holistic view at the inception of each scheme using his architectural design skills and seamlessly working with the clients planning consultants, for the benefit of every project. His designs are informed by the site-specific context and an understanding of the client’s brief and objectives, enabling innovative schemes to be created on challenging sites. Bill finds creative, sustainable and viable solutions that fully realise each site’s unique potential.
