Partner - BA (Hons), MA (RCA), ARB, RIBA
Mike is a designer and architect, trained at the Royal College of Art and Oxford Brookes where he was an RIBA Bronze Medal runner-up. Mike is now a design tutor at Oxford Brookes.
Mike has worked for Make Architects where he has worked on an international banking headquarters and a variety of mixed use schemes. He has had a key role in developing the practice's immersive client experience through the use of VR, and Augmented Reality visuals. Alongside this, his role overseeing construction packages at the site stages of Rathbone Square - a mixed use scheme in the West End including offices and 162 apartments has proved he can successfully deliver high quality, complex projects under pressure.
Mike's strengths are in managing client/contractor relationships and tackling the difficulties of bringing a large project to site. These sit in equal measure with striving to deliver a final product that is over and above the client's expectations. Maintaining quality and design integrity in the realities of a building project are challenges that he relishes and is something he continues to to bring to projects at FAB

Will is a designer and architect, trained at Oxford Brookes and the Royal College of Art. He is also a design tutor at Oxford Brookes, and has previously taught at UCLan and Chelsea College of Art.
Will has worked for practices including Grimshaws, Urban Salon and CSA, gaining experience in a broad range of projects from concept to completion across different sectors and scales. Most notably Will was a BIM coordinator on Heathrow Terminal 2B at Grimshaw and his design for low cost, flexible workspaces was realised by The Brew as their flagship location in Eagle House, Old Street.
Will is a strong proponent of digital design, visualisation and manufacturing, and has utilised these techniques in particular for retail design and for workspace design. He continues to bring these techniques to projects at FAB.
Will sees architecture as a force for positive change, keen that it remains ahead of the curve, proposing solutions in foresight, rather than reacting [often too slowly] to issues as they arrive.
