It’s a new year and with it comes a vaccination programme bringing fresh hope for a better future and the year ahead. In spite of the current restrictions we are all facing, we wish all of our wonderful clients, friends and family a very Happy New Year – May it be a healthy and positive one for each and every one of you!
In our first blog post of the new year we wanted to publish a series where we shine the spotlight on our incredible team members who all help to make Ashleigh Clarke Architects the thriving, happy practice it is today.
In the first of this series, we are featuring our wonderful MD and Chartered RIBA registered Architect, Ashleigh Clarke.
Ashleigh has over 9 year’s experience specialising in residential architecture in the Cotswolds and brings a wealth of knowledge and creative expertise to our clients. Highly creative and multi-skilled, he specialises in small to large-scale residential projects, conservation, education and commercial architecture, and master planning – consistently designing the most beautiful and functional spaces for our clients.
Ashleigh was driven to become an architect by his passion for design and technology. He loves being part of the architectural crowd, designing and building his own architectural structures and working with a range of fantastic clients to improve their lifestyle within their home spaces. Ashleigh is passionate about contributing towards building a better future for the environment while maintaining a close eye on preserving our historic structures that can be reinvented by combining both a historic and contemporary style.
Ashleigh’s favourite architect is Louis Kahn, who is known for his brutalist and monumental style of architecture, showcasing materials in the construction of his buildings.
An all-round good guy, Ashleigh loves spending time with his family, bike riding, participating in charity sporting activities and especially enjoys a pint by an open fire in one of our many beautiful Cotswolds pubs!
“As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown.” – Norman Foster
