Chris joined Caroe Architecture shortly after completing his Masters degree in Architecture & Urban Design at the University of Cambridge, receiving a distinction for his research into the architectural legacy of the Northern Irish Troubles.
He has a keen interest in historic buildings as both beautiful pieces of design and vital historic resources and has developed his experience and skills in the field working with several practices in Scotland and Northern Ireland before joining our Cambridge Office.
A Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and an energetic member of the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society and the Irish Georgian Society, Chris is also a founding member of an active building preservation trust in Northern Ireland.
He assists our senior design team with the preparation of information at all work stages as well as undertaking contract administration and document management.
Chris has a flair for architectural representation and graphic design, which was recognised in him being one of the winning entrants in the 2018 RIBA Journal EyeLine International Drawing Competition.
In November 2018, Chris was also awarded first place in the Society of the Protection of Ancient Buildings’ Philip Webb Award for his design project, ‘Troubled Legacy’ which proposed an alternative reuse development for the Troubles-era prison in Armagh, Northern Ireland.
