Design excellence, sustainability and pragmatism: the principles that guide Ian’s role at Penoyre & Prasad. With so much experience in so many different areas of architecture, Ian has a lot to share. It’s why he leads the practice’s higher education work and serves as Deputy Chair of the charity, Higher Education Design Quality Forum. This give-something-back approach to his professional life has taken him as far afield as Sri Lanka, Lesotho and – with his voluntary work for the architectural charity Article 25 – to Myanmar. He has also taught practice management at the Bartlett School of Architecture and is a regular lecturer and examiner at a number of universities.
Ian’s rigorous design and client liaison skills mean he’s able to craft beautiful, award winning, efficient and cost-effective architectural solutions for a diverse range of clients, both in the public and private sectors. And, with a growing – if not urgent – need for environmentally-responsible design, Ian not only drives the practice’s sustainability and implementation strategies, he is, in a wider sense, committed to the development and communication of a pragmatic and genuinely sustainable approach to architecture.
Away from the studio, Ian gives his time as a trustee of London’s October Gallery and, when he’s not doing that, he can found outside: walking, climbing or cycling.BArch (Hons) Dip Arch MArch RIBA
