Rigby & Rigby is a London-based design studio and founding member of the Allect International Design Group, whose multidisciplinary expertise extends across development management, architecture, interior design, construction and private client services. From conception to completion, exceptional contemporary properties in desirable locations around the world have benefited from Rigby & Rigby’s holistic approach and complete turnkey service.
Alongside its design expertise, Rigby & Rigby is committed to the client experience and offers carefully personalised service at every stage. This journey starts with the initial concept and goes through the deliver phase, covering construction, interior design detailing and the integration of technology. Once completed, a client’s property can then be immaculately maintained and managed through their concierge property service.
Although 2020 was a challenging and uncertain time, the company continued to thrive. Its design studios engaged in two hotel projects, while the delivery and construction side of the business continued to excel even with the working restrictions and revised safety regulations that were put in place.
They used the time to further develop its strategy and work on product line launches and new market opportunities for 2021, whilst also bringing in exciting new projects within the commercial, residential and maritime industries.
‘We have been very fortunate, and our continued success throughout this period emphasises the fine reputation of Rigby & Rigby and the excellent relationships we have with both new and repeat clients,’ says Iain Johnson, CEO.
In the competitive, high-stakes world of international property, Rigby & Rigby differentiates itself by being a research and design-led studio that is constantly testing its own capabilities, pushing innovation and being willing to experiment – while consistently infusing its projects with a defined and refined aesthetic. Its special projects team is currently involved in schemes that are collectively worth in excess of £1bn, including two elegantly contemporary London sites: Lancelot House in Knightsbridge and Berkeley Arcade Residence in Mayfair.
In 2021, alongside the planned launch of its own first furniture collection Unknown Editions, Rigby & Rigby will embark on numerous international special projects. These include managing the development of an ultra- prime private residential property in the epicentre of Tokyo with the world-renowned Kengo Kuma Architects; redesigning a prestigious private family office in a scenic setting in Oslo; and designing a superyacht for a private client. The brief for the latter is to create a flexible, contemporary and open-plan interior, integrated crew accommodation and space for eight guests in four cabins, including a full-beam master suite.
Rigby & Rigby is bursting with the energy that comes from being successful at making its clients’ dreams and aspirations a reality. Creating fully resolved and refined spaces that are both luxurious and functional takes confidence and a sure hand. Both qualities are evident in this British brand that plays on a world stage.
