Michael is a UK qualified Architect, with 10 years post qualification experience in a wide range of projects over a number of RIBA stages, from listed buildings to office developments. He started at Bryden Wood in early 2017 having previously worked for 5 years at Farrells and 6 years at Robin Partington & Partners (RPP), both in London.
During his time at Farrells, Michael was involved with their Regents Place scheme, which comprised 2 office and 1 residential building on the Euston Road in London, he was also heavily involved in the detailed design of the Great North museum in Newcastle, a refurbishment and extension to the Grade II listed Hancock museum. Whilst at RPP Michael was site architect on Park House at the east end of Oxford street, a 9 storey mixed use building, with retail, residential and office space, taking up a whole block near Selfridges.
Michael has a particular interest in delivering buildings, and enjoys the process of coordinating with structural and MEP engineers to develop the design, and with contractors to deliver the building. The opportunity to work at a multi-disciplinary practice such as Bryden Wood was a particular draw.
