Ferrey and Mennim (Architects)
Architecture practice specialising in historic building work in the fields of conservation and new design
Ferrey and Mennim was founded in 1922 and has evolved to pursue a contemporary, timeless style of architecture often within complex historic settings. The technicians and architects at the practice draw their influences from a huge pool and find much inspiration from buildings in York’s magnificent past and ongoing architectural traditions. Architects such as William Lethaby, David Lea, George Pace, Peter Aldington also provide continual references.
In addition to their work with private clients, caring for over 150 churches and two cathedrals in York and beyond forms the bulk of their work, and the firm has worked with organisations including English Heritage, The National Trust and the Diocese of York. After being based near to the Minster for over 90 years the company is now located in Heslington to make it that bit easier for clients to find the office.
“We’re proud of our particular specialism in conserving sensitive historic buildings and churches but we’ve also won awards for our contemporary architecture.”
