Andrew joined Flanagan Lawrence in 2012, where he has worked across residential and commercial schemes including the recently completed R+ in Reading, a 100,000 sqft Grade A office building that sits sympathetically within its historic urban context whilst being unashamedly modern.
Currently Andrew is working on a 100,000 sqft refurbishment and extension of an office building in Brentford, which will revitalise and reposition the building whilst enhancing its environmental credentials. He is also leading the design of MACQ, a new auditorium in Sunderland. The scheme forms part of the Sunderland Music, Arts, Cultural Quarter (MACQ), which will restore and re-establish the area’s previous importance as the Edwardian heart and soul of the city.
In his time at Flanagan Lawrence, Andrew has also been responsible for The Embankment, Greengate, office buildings in Salford, the first phase of which completed in early 2017. The modern steel and glass office buildings appear as lightweight highly polished jewels, sat above the robust historic façade of the railway embankment. He also secured planning permission for a spa and restaurant building on a complex site overlooking the sea, in Millendreath, Cornwall. The project is designed to be the centre piece of a tourism led regeneration of the area.
Andrew studied architecture at the Manchester School of Architecture, and went on to work for Sheppard Robson in their Manchester office and for Grimshaw in London. In 2010 Andrew also set-up Deep Blue Architects, where projects included a new build Code 6 zero carbon house, a number of residential refurbishments, as well as containers@work, a shipping container office building.
At Grimshaw, Andrew ran the façade packages on the St Botolph Building in the City of London. The building comprised 525,000 sqft of commercial office space and ground floor retail. He progressed to project architect for Phase 2 of the Excel Exhibition Centre. The building comprises exhibition, conferencing and retail outlets and a 3,000 seat silver service restaurant. The project completed in 2010.
