John Christophers

Position: Senior Associate

John joined the practice in 1984, and has served variously as Architect, Partner, Director, and Associate since then.

During this period of significant contribution, he has been responsible for designing a wide variety of educational, urban regeneration, residential and arts buildings. He has always been passionate about Sustainable Architecture, a sensibility rewarded by the RIBA Sustainability Award 2005 for Cobtun, Worcester. Cobtun was described by the architectural critic Deyan Sudjic as “an advertisement as much for the pleasure to be had in building … as a manifesto for sustainability.”

Current projects include Masterplanning for King’s School Gloucester, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, King’s School Worcester Sports and Performing Arts Centre, and a building at King’s Hawford School designed to ‘Passivhaus’ ultra low energy standards.
