With an eye for excellence, Robin acts as the Creative Director of Urbanist Architecture and leads the architectural team. He relishes problem-solving and delving into the details of projects to reach unparalleled outcomes that support our clients’ goals with creative acumen.

Robin brings over 20 years of professional experience, working on multiple residential, healthcare, civic and mixed-use developments across rural and urban settings. He is well-versed in running projects and can confidently oversee your extension, new home or larger development from feasibility to completion.

As a Hertfordshire resident, he brings a crucial perspective to our Green Belt projects. He oversees all of our architectural projects as part of our quality control in the practice. Robin thinks broadly and strategically, and puts people first, always making sure all our projects are feasible and livable while still being exciting or elegant pieces of design.

In addition to his role at Urbanist Architecture, Robin also serves as an external examiner for RIBA's Part III examinations, which demonstrates the respect and recognition he’s held within the profession. That means he’s the perfect complement for our incredibly bright, intelligent, and driven team.
