Acquisition-hungry Corstorphine and Wright has snapped up RIBA award-winning practice Lipton Plant Architects.

Meanwhile, Lipton Plant co-founder and former creative director Ed Lipton has left to found Architect That, a separate practice with studios in London and Scotland.

Lipton Plant itself has changed its name legally to Corstorphine & Wright (London) Ltd, according to a document filed with Companies House.

Lipton Plant was founded in 2002. Its highest-profile schemes included the Bath House children’s community centre on Shacklewell Lane in Hackney, which won an RIBA award in 2016.

The architect extended the 1930s building outwards and opened up the interior, knocking through several internal walls, inserting large glass openings and four new roof lights, and inserting a large timber frame structure that serves both as a decorative screen and a staircase, almost like a tree house.

In 2017, Architect That’s Creative Director  featured in the Channel 4 television series Ugly House to Lovely House presented by George Clark.
