The team



BA(Hons) BArch RIBA Conservation Architect

Victoria’s passion for historic buildings ignited when she found herself clambering around the outside of Liverpool Central Library’s Zinc dome during the refurbishment in 2011. Now a fully-fledged, leather elbow patch wearing conservation architect, Victoria’s favourite projects involve adapting and altering historic buildings with contemporary additions. Now co-owner of the practice Victoria’s passions have had to extend to the ISO 9001 certified QMS, finance reporting and anything that involves an Excel spreadsheet.


Outside of practice Victoria’s 2 dogs Elvis and Norma take priority, closely followed by netball and beer.

BA(Hons) Architecture ONC / HNC Building, NEBOSH, IMaPS.

Sean went on a 2 week holiday to Singapore and at the airport after checking in on his return flight home he decided he liked it more than the UK, so got his bags off the plane and stayed a bit longer, returning a few years later married, after working at a couple of local Architectural practices reluctantly returned due to the global economy.

His extensive architectural interests include, Deconstruction (Peter Eisenmann, Bernard Tschumi, Frank Gehry, Coop Himmelb(lau), Modernism (Le Corbusier, Peter Eisenmann, Richard Meier) and High Tech. (Richard Rogers, Norman Foster, Santiago Calatrava).

She is passionate about healthcare architecture, appreciative of good interior design, and interested in architecture that makes a positive difference in people’s lives.

Her favourite building is La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona; finding the façade detail insane and the interior and light quality breath-taking.    She regularly goes the gym in her spare time to burn off all the cake brought in at PJP!
