The team at Papa is robust and roles are adapted to meet the needs of the client and to play to the individual’s strength. The company's directors have known each other for many years, since the RIBA studies and through practice on various types of projects. Combining each director's strong points covers almost all aspects of the industry.
Their longstanding personal and professional relationship influences the ethos of the studio and creates an enjoyable and open work environment and therefore a happy and effective team. The strength of the management is enhanced by an excellent design and administration team in the studio to ensure excellent project and practice management, as well as a better service to the clients.
All directors are fully qualified architects registered with the Architects Registration Board boasting significant experience in a wide range of companies prior to founding the practice. This includes working as project architects for signature offices such as 'Terry Farrell', 'Vakis Associates', 'DTR Sheard Walshaw', on large commercial projects with construction values up to £200m and with responsibility for design packages up to £40m. The experience gained in practice and through education means that the director team can tackle the challenges that arise and ensure that they can deliver successful projects for their clients.
