“Architecture should be emotive, it’s where imagination meets innovation” ”

Ross joined Apt in 2022 having developed an extensive portfolio of complex, high density, residential/mixed use schemes within London and the surrounding areas. He strives to produce successful places that not only deliver engaging architecture but those that have a contextual identity and provide the tools to foster a sense of community through design. 

Ross is an Associate at Apt and has been responsible for leading the design team on Hill House in the City of London. The proposals retain almost 60% of the existing structure and create a sustainable and healthy workplace for the future with access to landscaped terraces at every level. A vibrant mix of uses are created at ground floor including a new and improved home for the Shoe Lane Library.   

At a previous practice Ross led the design team on the award-winning, modular Lewisham Exchange which comprises two towers at 35 and 20 storeys housing both student accommodation and affordable housing. This sparked a keen interest in volumetric modular construction and how this can revolutionise the construction industry and address the need for high-quality housing delivered at pace, while reducing waste.   

When not at his desk Ross is out on two wheels in the Kent hills or racing at Hog Hill.
