New Associate Partners


We are expanding our senior team by inviting six uniquely skilled colleagues to be Associate Partners. Our Associate Partners will continue to drive thought leadership in their areas of expertise, with a mission to expand our capability and horizons. We are excited to see what our team can achieve in their new extended roles.


Ian Whittle
Associate Partner, Architect

“My focus is to help shape our projects and processes to deliver buildings that support a sustainable low carbon future. I’ll also continue to lead research initiatives to inform our projects for education providers. A key focus is exploring how buildings can support the changing ways in which we learn.”


Tania Love
Associate Partner, Architect

“Urban regeneration, cultural heritage and place purpose – I spend a lot of time getting under the skin of the places where we work. My focus is weaving storytelling and memories into the imaginative architectures, repurposings and masterplans that we draw. For me architecture is about people, makers and markets; food halls and festivals; cultural collaborations; safe space, community engagement, the creation of collective ownership, the places between our buildings too, and civic pride."


Niall Durney
Associate Partner, AIA Architect

“My international experience will be invaluable to our team as we focus in on establishing a studio in Dublin from where I will continue to contribute to some of the most exciting mixed use regeneration schemes in Europe.”


Katharine Learmonth
Associate Partner, Head of Finance

“As we continue to grow internationally our ongoing business management is of significant importance, I’ll work hard with the team to both maintain and continue success by careful and structured management of all things corporate and financial.”


Steve Dickson
Associate Partner, Head of Interiors

“Society is experiencing rapid changes that are generating opportunity for designers to re-evaluate how we live and work, how we play and how we engage with each other as communities. I’m looking forward to interpreting these changes and working with our studio to enable our team to deliver creative, imaginative and successful solutions for our clients and the people that will use our architecture.”


Patrick McMahon
Associate Partner, Architect

“I am passionate about promoting design excellence, technical integration and product quality. My focus will be on shaping our response to architectural competitions, creating new ideas and supporting our teams to deliver projects to the highest level of quality.”
