Rob qualified from Brighton school of architecture in 1983 with a first class degree and began his career within a regional firm of architects. Since forming KLH Architects in 1988 with Graham Lambert and Alan Howard, Rob has continued in regionally orientated practice and has formed a close working knowledge of many of East Anglian Planning authorities. His experiences extend to a wide range of project types ranging from historic listed buildings to education and large healthcare facilities. Rob believes in and practices the approach that whatever the nature of client, private individual, local authority or trust body it is important that a close and direct relationship be developed with their architect. He is committed to continued professional development and joined the list of architects accredited in Building Conservation in 2011 together with completing a Post-Graduate Certificate in Energy and Sustainable Building Design in 2012 via distance learning with De-Montfort University. (MSc pending research project.)
With a firm belief that the nature of the client brief and the context will dictate the design solution Rob is aware that this will vary and whether conservation, contexture or reproduction, it is always the quality of design and execution that delivers exemplary architecture.
