Life at Foster + Partners

Campus life

The practice is headquartered in London, with a range of on-site facilities, from an extensive library with 50,000 publications, archive, and materials research centre, to world-class model workshops, photography studio and reprographic facilities.

We have a spacious cafe that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner at highly subsidised rates. Tea and coffee is free across the campus with afternoon treats baked onsite every day.

The studio is a two-minute walk from Battersea Park a great place for a post-lunch stroll. The campus also has an informal break-out area called The Hub a space for discussions, lunchtime lectures, post-work events or just to have a cup of coffee.

We have several sports clubs that meet regularly throughout the year from football, softball, golf and tennis to climbing and an annual sailing regatta. We have on-site shower facilities and secure bike sheds, with regular bike repair workshops.

Our Christmas and summer parties are an integral part of our annual social calendar, along with the Graduate Show, Partners Gathering, and outdoor drinks every Friday throughout the summer.
