Ben is part of Granit's Architecture team and one of our Associates. He is responsible for working on our private client projects and commercial developments. He enjoys the multifaceted role of the architect and taking a project from its initial back of a napkin sketch to the finished building. He is passionate about his work and has an avid eye for detail, understanding that it is these particulars that bring a project together. Ben gained an Architecture Degree at Oxford Brookes University and a Masters in Architecture from Edinburgh University. He is both a RIBA Chartered Architect, qualifying in July 2015, a member of the Royal Institute of Architects Scotland (RIAS) and an ARB Registered Architect. Ben was initially drawn to the idea of architecture when passing the ARK on the way into London. Ben is a big fan of Gaudi's use of space and colour and Frank Lloyd Wright and Carlos Scarpa’s details and use of materials. Away from the office, Ben is enjoys rugby and is a self-professed "fair weather" cricketer. He loves the dynamic lifestyle of London but is a country boy at heart and can always be tempted to travel out to some of Granit's more rural projects.
