In 1957 SPACE Architects was established in Newcastle upon Tyne, and today works with clients in the North East of England, the UK and Internationally. We are a team of architects, designers and technologists who specialise in the creative re-use of buildings, design optimisation and circular decarbonisation.
Responding to the climate emergency and acknowledging buildings' impact on global warming, we have set ourselves challenging targets to be a carbon-neutral business by 2023 and Net Zero carbon by 2030. We are proud of our culture, supporting and valuing our people so they can use their creativity and commitment to innovation to help our clients lead within their sectors.
Our people are a passionate and creative team, with a common purpose and a shared philosophy. We’re smart thinkers and curious souls. We care about the impact our work has on the world.
Research and development play key roles in our forward-thinking approach, using creativity and new techniques and innovations that improve quality, support the environment, reduce costs and save time on each project.
Investment in digital technologies, sustainability and offsite fabrication, all play a vital role in the design and construction industry. We remain outward-facing and relevant, responding to changing times, both as an employer and as a partner to the ambitious organisations we work alongside. We listen and respond to an ever-changing world.

As part of being a B Corporation organisation, we are committed to business as a force for good.
Whilst we strive to impact the planet and society positively, there is much we can do within our local community.

We fund two architectural scholarships at Northumbria University and the Stephen Lawrence Scholarship at Newcastle University.
As corporate sponsors of Beamish Museum and Darlington Hippodrome Theatre, we continue to support our clients beyond project completion.
Not only do we provide financial support, but all Spacers have three days per year to support a local project.
