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 to their physical, cultural and historic context - with the ambition that they will, in time, grow naturally into becoming a meaningful part of a place and the lives of people who surround it.
With every new project, the practice pays close attention to the needs of the client, the selection of materials and the use of natural light, to help create a sense of composure, permanence and natural warmth throughout.
The practice has a portfolio comprising of new houses, extensions, apartment refurbishments, cultural buildings, restoration of listed buildings and housing developments.
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 experience 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.
