"Architecture is not just a job. It’s a calling; a vocation; a way of life."
Coming from a family of carpenters and artists I was always destined to choose a career in some avenue of design. After debating careers in art and fashion I decided on architecture; the perfect marriage of art and technology. In truth I had no idea what I was getting myself into. From day one I was hooked, and despite entertaining other options I have always been drawn back to architecture. For me its interdisciplinary nature makes it continually exciting and engaging. No day is the same and I can honestly say I never get that Monday morning disappointment of going to work. Do you?

Whilst studying at Oxford Brookes I was able to pursue my interests in the business of architecture. This culminated in two volumes entitled ‘Building Brands’ that consider architects and their practices first and foremost as brands and, with it, architecture’s connection to our current culture of commodification and celebrity.

Given my innate passion for curves, I have always been attracted to buildings with sculptural qualities; buildings that stand out and sit proud. This made Robin Partington Architects an easy choice.

The collaborative and transparent nature of the practice, nurtures the best in people whilst challenging them to improve. I feel extremely privileged to work closely with people of such calibre and experience. The best companies are not those with the most brains but those with the most brains in tune; this is true of RPP.
