Partner, Architect, BA (Hons) DArch RIBA AABC
Mark’s enthusiasm for working with historic buildings is coupled with a deep understanding of the practical needs of owners and managers of listed structures. With over fifteen years of specialist experience, he is a firm believer in ‘getting under the skin’ of an historic building in order to fully appreciate its potential.
As Inspecting Architect, he has built up a long term relationship with the Wallace Collection, housed in an 18th Century mansion in London’s West End. His retained role to the Collection entails solving ongoing repair problems and overseeing significant alterations, including art gallery and restaurant refurbishment.
‘To understand an historic building you have to ‘get inside the head’ of the original architect before you can think of adapting and developing it for continuing or new uses’.
