A profile of Henley Halebrown's two directors, Simon Henley and Gavin Hale-Brown, has been published in Building Design.

The article by architectural editor Ben Flatman looks at Simon and Gavin's early influences, design philosophy, commitment to improving access to the profession, and their genuine interest in how people use buildings.

Flatman concludes: "As the practice contemplates its approaching 30th anniversary, it is clear that Henley Halebrown remains as committed to architecture’s wider social purpose as ever. And its founders, whose shared vision of practice was formed through early experiences in Liverpool and overseas, are focused on passing on their passion – and knowledge – so that a new generation can thrive."
