Stride Treglown is an employee-owned architectural practice of over 300 people. The practice was started in 1953 by two architects, Ray Stride and Gerry Treglown. Ray was a stickler for detail, buildability and process, while Gerry was a socially adept, creative powerhouse. Their personalities live on and define who we are today. We’re professional. We’re creative. We are not driven by ego. Instead, we focus on the needs of our clients and the people that use our projects, creating inspiring, sustainable spaces that genuinely work. We create spaces that and places that people love to use.

Bath & Business
Bath has lots going on for a city of its size but it’s also compact enough to be completely walkable, from the centre you can be out in the countryside in 30 minutes. Lots of our staff cycle or walk in, despite the office being up one of the city’s seven hills. It also has some great green space, like Alexandra Park, which is only a10 minute walk from our office, where you can get amazing views over Bath. There’s also a boules pitch up there, handy for fitting in a bit of practice before the tournament every year in Queen Square. There’s a good sense of community in Bath and you’ll often run into someone you know when you’re in town.
Even though our head office is just up the road in Clifton, an office in Bath is convenient for a lot of employees who live outside Bristol. A Bath address also carries a certain amount of prestige and especially when we do a quite a bit of conservation work. Having a portfolio of completed projects in a UNESCO setting puts us in a good position to bid for work in other sensitive historic environments.
Bath’s stunning architecture and special setting are internationally recognised. As the only hot springs spa in the UK it is truly unique; its fame as a place of healing has helped it attract visitors for over 2,000 years and helped create the beautiful city we know today, so you might say that it is the original wellbeing city. With its green and ‘blue’ spaces, harmonious architecture and café culture, the city has a great foundation to be the most liveable city in the UK.
We employee a lot of students from Bath University, it’s one of the best architecture courses in the country so we are lucky to be able to draw on that talent. Bath’s world famous reputation attracts a lot of international visitors to make it their home and our office workforce reflects that diversity. These employees bring with them ideas, experience and skills from their places of origin, which we think enriches the work we produce as a team. A few of our staff come in from Frome and Warminster and having the train station right in the centre of the city makes it convenient for them to commute in.
