Richard Garnon

Project Architect

I studied Architecture at the University of Greenwich after which I worked in London on commercial office, motor trade and retail developments before relocating to Dublin. There I worked with Gardiner Architects on various projects ranging from private one off houses, restaurant refurbishment, security projects for the Office of Public Works, mixed use developments and a number of protected/listed structures including the conversion of a derelict mill in Birr to residential and the refurbishment of a former Georgian townhouse office for a trade union.

After five and a half years in Ireland I returned to London to work on a 199 unit residential scheme in the London Docklands along with a number of smaller projects for local housing authorities and private developers in and around London.

July 2010 saw me joining BLA Architects to focus on the extension and refurbishment of a Grade II listed townhouse in Belgravia. This was followed by a new build 49 unit residential development in east London for a commercial developer, a conversion of a commercial office building to residential through permitted development in Camden alongside a number of residential extensions and refurbishments in London, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire.
