I enjoy placemaking with buildings that engage the senses, celebrating their context, the climate and culture of the people using them.”
Robin grew up in the Northwest of England surrounded by architects and engineers. School holidays spent immersed in heavy engineering and cutting oil nurtured a fascination for the properties of materials, how things are made and a healthy respect for the craftsmanship and skills involved.

After an illustrious career developed at Foster + Partners and Hamiltons Architects where he built up a diverse portfolio of experience and expertise working on innovative and award-winning projects across the world, Robin founded Apt in 2009. The studio is an endless source of inspiration, filled with talented people and boundless energy. It is a place with great projects and wonderful opportunities, where clients and colleagues collaborate in a hugely rewarding process. 

Robin’s creative side of life is balanced by diverse interests, including travel, wildlife, sailing, flying, skiing, astronomy, photography and fireworks (fond memories of school chemistry lessons!). He collects books, magnolias, trees and the periodic table.

Robin is also a silversmith and has two sons who are a source of great pride and endless pleasure.
