Chris is a Director & founder of InsideOut Architecture, and Trustee of the InsideOut Trust.
Born & bred in London, and justifiably proud to be so. Following an “old school” apprenticeship as a draughtsman, Chris studied Architecture and Engineering at the University of Westminster, and graduated in 1993.
He went on to work on a diverse portfolio of projects spanning Master Planning, Healthcare, Retail, Workplace & Residential Architecture both in the U.K and Malaysia. Chris had always had an ambition to do his own thing, and set up the practice in 2001. As a director, Chris has had input into most projects, but the thing that he will point to as his biggest achievement at the company is its transformation in 2019 into an Employee Owned Trust.
Chris has a strong track record in the Workplace sector, both at, and prior to forming InsideOut. Previous experience includes Cat A / Cat B fit outs for British Land in Broadgate (15,000 sq ft), Bishopsgate (50,000 sq ft) and the Head Office fit out for Land Securities Trillium at London Wall (100,000 sq ft), as well as many projects at a more modest scale.
Chris has a passion for and extensive experience within the technical and challenging Aviation sector – leading over 20 high-end Airport Lounge fit out projects in the UK & Australia ( 75,000 sq ft, and contract value of £35m) – as well as acting as client advisor in relation to strategic development.
