Richard has 10 years experience in the construction industry. He started his career as an Architectural Technician mostly working on domestic projects such as extensions, new builds and barn conversions, taking them from concept to the Planning phase, right through to Building Regulation approval.
Following this, Richard went on to work for a National Planning consultancy in their Urban Design team. Working for national developers, he created documentation to supplement Planning Applications for large developments from 20 to 300 dwellings. He specialised in designing smaller sites and bespoke house types and creating architecturally led, considered and stimulating vernaculars and spaces.
Taking on a different challenge, Richard spent a year in Australia working in a National Architecture Practice in Sydney. He worked along side architects and structural engineers on large commercial projects such as hotels, office blocks and medical centres.
Now an integral part of the design team at Armstrong Architecture, Richard is a creative and technical minded designer who enjoys the challenge of enhancing the aesthetic and ergonomics of existing dwellings and spaces, whilst full-filling the client’s needs.
