Brendan Durkin


BA (Hons) DipArch

Brendan studied architecture at Kingston and London Metropolitan universities. He joined Eric Parry Architects after his studies in 2006 and was appointed Associate in 2014 and Associate Director in 2020.

Brendan is currently leading the team for the seventh Livery Hall for the Clothworkers’ Company, a new and modern Livery Hall for future generations of this 500-year-old philanthropic institution. Brendan is also project lead for proposals for a new office building and extensive public spaces at 50 Fenchurch Street in the City of London. This project will provide over 60,000 sq m of workspace and offers the City of London the first of a new generation of sustainable buildings with publicly accessible historic assets and an integrated urban greening strategy.

Prior to this he led the team as the project associate for 1 Liverpool Street in the City of London, a technically complex Crossrail oversite development providing 24,000 sq m of office space, up to planning and Stage 3. This received planning permission in autumn 2019, and he continues to support this project through stages of detail design, procurement, and construction.

Brendan also led the team for the planning and delivery of the £28m new-build residential project of Vicarage Gate House in Kensington. The project consisted of the design and realisation of a new luxury apartment building in the heart of Kensington conservation area. He worked on the practice’s residential building in the London 2012 Athletes Village in Stratford, which was delivered prior to the Olympic Games.

One of his first projects at Eric Parry Architects was an office building at 23 Savile Row in Mayfair, London. This scheme included collaborating with US sculptor Joel Shapiro, who was commissioned to create a bronze sculpture that floats above the central entrance (this was Shapiro’s first permanent public sculpture in the UK).

Brendan has a range of experience and has worked on many successful competitions for the studio. He has also delivered smaller scale projects, which include the Hauser Wirth Gallery on Savile Row and the reworking of the main entrance of 111 Buckingham Palace Road above Victoria Station.
