Our practice is led by David Roden and Elias Niazi, who share an architectural heritage and a combined experience of over 50 years. Together, they have built a diverse team of highly talented, energetic professionals who are bound by a common work ethos and a mutual desire to create design excellence. Architectural design is, above all, a personal business and gains immeasurably from the ‘hands-on’ approach of our principals, working closely with the wider client and project teams.
Our directors are supported by senior staff including Damien Busch, Brian Woodward, and Andro Monzon. We minimise hierarchy in favour of a ‘family’ studio atmosphere, enabling work of the highest standards to be delivered with clear vision and under the closest personal attention.
We are an equal opportunities employer, and we have a robust policy of diversity, equity and inclusion. We strongly believe in human rights regardless of ethnicity, religion, or orientation and will not work in markets that oppress such rights. We have a reputation for being friendly, collaborative, flexible, responsive and easy to work with. People are at the very heart of what we do and how we approach our work. With experience spanning various disciplines and sectors, our people make us who we are.
Our open-plan studio is designed to reflect and encourage flexible, collaborative working and promote interaction, innovation and the sharing of ideas. It also creates an egalitarian atmosphere where everyone can contribute. This is particularly so, given our medium size which we intend to maintain—a personable scale which respects the individual but is capable of handling multiple large, complex projects with confidence.
