Architectural technologists Robert Russell and Rosa Headford have joined the Leeds and London practice to bolster both its accessible design and residential masterplanning services.
Russell joins from GSS Architecture where highlight projects included new build schools and refurbishment schemes for Durham University and HMP Moorland. He has relocated from Kent to work in the Leeds office.
His experience includes work across sectors including industrial, residential, care homes and hospitals.
Headford joins from Hive 51 Architecture in Barnsley where she worked across a range of large housing development companies for clients such as Bovis Homes, Vistry and Keepmoat Homes.

The company’s accessible design architectural service has seen continued expansion with an increasing amount of court protection/design adaptation projects in the pipeline.
Russell will assist director Richard Grota in this sector, while Headford will assist the management team in the growing strategic masterplanning/housing service sector which has also seen a rise in new instructions over the last year.
