In addition, we would also consider applications from a skilled part II Student to help us. We can teach you about craftsmanship and construction; working with traditional materials in a timeless way.

Jun '20 Martin Llewellyn (Sort Of) Retires

Martin Llewellyn, co-founder of Llewellyn Harker Lowe, stepped down as a director of the practice on 4th June 2020. Martin has lead and developed our studio for the last 20 years,and we thank him for everything he has done for us. Whilst he is stepping down from his administrative role, we are very pleased that he will continue to work flexibly with us as a consultant architect into the future.

We celebrated his work with a small socially distanced gathering. Here he is is pictured sizing up a monolithic piece of Portland stone which we hope will keep him busy in his (semi) retirement!
