The practice has built a fine reputation for working in conservation areas on historic and listed buildings.

Chris has also collaborated with Sir Terry Farrell, James Stirling and Michael Wilford on numerous high profile projects since completing his studies at the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow, with a particular interest in striking and original design concepts with particular care given to function, culture and environmental issues.

the grounds deserve some continuity, and these designs are very elegant
Fantastic news, really sound policy

Signy will be greatly missed by the students past and present at the school she was so clearly committed to and fond of.
I met her on several occasions and was always impressed with her approach to a practical, and emotionally intelligent philosophy of design - this shone through in the graduates some of whom we employed at my practice down the road in Fashion street Spitalfields.
Our thoughts go out to her family foremost, friends and students at the Cass School of Architecture.
