Featured in Prime Resi, Lawson Robb has now joined one of the UK’s most established family businesses The Rigby Group Plc, by being one of the founding design companies within the Allect Design Group.
The Rigby Group – which currently counts revenues of around £2.4bn – has assembled the biggest residential design practice in London, with Rigby & Rigby, Helen Green Design, and Lawson Robb now all operating under its Allect Design Group banner.
Founded in 1975, Sir Peter Rigby’s sector-spanning PLC has divisions in technology, aviation, private equity, financial services – and super-prime property development, via its Mayfair-based Rigby & Rigby brand.
Attentions have now however turned to dominating, rather than participating in, the UK’s luxury design sector. The Allect venture has been launched with a mission to “bring together some of the finest names in architecture, interior and product design, while maximising their ability to achieve excellence, and promoting their growth in new markets”, beginning with the addition of Helen Green Design last year, and Lawson Robb this year.
From Prime Resi:
Already considered a top ten operation in London, Lawson Robb studio has a loyal international following, particularly amongst Middle Eastern HNWI, and has picked up a slew of design awards for its ultra-luxe resi and marine endeavours in the UK and overseas.
From Lawson Robb:
“We are extremely excited to be starting this venture with both Rigby Group, and the Allect Design Group’s stable of prestigious design brands. We are delighted to work with Allect to expand our vision for Lawson Robb and to invest in our future, we see huge potential for Lawson Robb and its overseas expansion and with a substantial committed investment fund, we can look to invest in people, offices and systems to ensure we are at the leading edge of design.”
