Completing his degree at Edinburgh College of Art, Richard continued with his post graduate studies gaining a diploma and masters in Architectural Conservation, also at Edinburgh College of Art.
Gaining experience on a wide variety of projects at a number of large practices in Edinburgh Richard joined the practice in 2006, was invited to become an Associate in 2007, becoming Partner / Director in 2011.
Considerable experience on projects which cover a diverse range of sectors and scales informs his approach to all of his work. A passion for the extensive and imaginative use of natural building materials is reflected in all of his work.
Having managed projects with construction values of up to £25 million Richard has extensive experience in the administration of building contracts and the successful management of architectural projects during the construction period.
A particular interest in the discipline of Architectural Conservation informs Richard’s approach to architecture, emphasised by his belief to ensure that the sustainable survival of our built heritage for future generations lies within both the careful conservation of our existing buildings in conjunction with an imaginative contemporary architectural language.
What gets me out of bed:
I am fortunate that from a young age Architecture has excited me from those early days of lego model building as a child, to more recently working with our committed and unique team at MILL delivering interesting and varied projects.
A strong coffee and a bacon roll also helps!
