After 16 years of practice, we are truly delighted to be able to say that, as of November 2020, the ownership of Studio Egret West has been transferred to a newly formed Employee Ownership Trust.

As part of the trust, all of our employees will be represented at board level through two employee trustee directors, alongside Studio Egret West founding directors Christophe Egret and David West, as well as an independent director. The trust is also supported by an Employee Forum, through which employee voices can be heard, and a Studio Charter, which captures the guiding principles of our practice. Through the Employee Ownership Trust, we are pleased to be able to reflect the individual commitment and ambition of all our staff by sharing in any future success.

As a multi-faceted design studio, we have always valued the skills, passions and opinions of all our staff, and the opportunity to bring employees into the ownership structure has long been an ambition, as well as a very natural step for the practice.”
David West Founding Director, Studio Egret West

The Employee Ownership Trust marks a new era for Studio Egret West: the whole studio workforce engaged with an owner’s eye in the success and creativity of our business.”
