with whom?

Everyone learns from someone. In the past I have teamed with other practices to design and complete projects; sometimes my interventions are nearly invisible. Former colleagues and employees have also moved on to form practices of their own.


Drury Browne Architects successfully collaborated with various architects and designers, including Seth Stein Architects and Alan Drury Architects. My former employers, Andrews Downie and Partners (now Haines Phillips Architects), continued to seek my services until my relocation in 2005. Through Andrews Downie, Drury Browne created a canal-side design studio building in Bow (see above) which won a British Steel Award.


The Baltic Restaurant in Blackfriars, with Seth Stein Architects, was widely published in the architectural press. Working with Alan Drury Architects gave the practice experience of working on sensitive listed building projects in Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties.

Graspan Royal Marines Memorial.
Originally designed by Adrian Jones in 1903 and under the maintenance and care of The Royal Parks; two bronze figures representing Royal Marines on a Portland stone plinth, located next to Admiralty Arch on the north side of the Mall. Erected in memory of Royal Marines who died in the Boxer Rebellion Campaign in China and the Boer War in southern Africa.
The base is decorated with bronze plaques by Sir Thomas Graham Jackson depicting the battles and Roll of Honour of the two original campaigns. In 1940 it was put in storage to make way for the building of The Citadel. It was moved to its present position in 1948.
In 2000, and with the additional surrounding works, it became the Royal Marines National Memorial and is the focus of the annual Graspan Parade.
