Mark Todd Architects was established in June 2015 and is based in The Ormeau Baths in Belfast. The practice is interested in designing and delivering buildings that respond specifically to their physical, cultural and historic context - with the ambition that each project will, in time, grow naturally into becoming a meaningful part of a place and the the lives of people who surround it.
With each project, the practice pays close attention to the ambitions of it’s client. Use, form, materials, light and the atmosphere of a building are carefully considered to help create a sense of composure, permanence and warmth throughout.
Before establishing the practice, Mark spent 5 years working at RIBA award winning practice Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and 2 years at RIBA award winning practice Hall McKnight Architects.
Mark’s portfolio of work to date comprises a range of projects that vary in scale and complexity. Notable projects include contemporary alterations to a scheduled ancient monument in Gloucester, the delivery of a private school within the World Heritage city of Bath and a planning and listed building consent application for King's College London in Westminster. Having worked on and delivered contemporary architecture within sensitive contexts, Mark Todd Architects has a depth of experience in the planning and listed building consent process.
Mark is also a visiting tutor at the School of Planning, Architecture and Civil Engineering at Queens University, the Belfast School of Architecture at the University of Ulster and has previously lectured at Northumbria University and at Oxford Brookes University.
