Russ has worked with the practice since 1999. He is involved in the practice’s principle design activities and is responsible for complex, mixed-use urban regeneration projects; building concept development from theory through to detailed interior design is a specialism. His drawings and visualisations contribute to the developing design and expression of the practice.
Russ is a lead designer on high profile public and cultural buildings, including the RIBA and World Architecture award winning Great North Museum. He has extensive experience of working in conservation areas with listed buildings, and achieving successful planning consents for projects such as the Grade 1 listed Royal Institution of Great Britain, 7 Albemarle Street and the London Clinic. Russ has excellent mixed use master planning experience leading on successful projects such as North Wharf Gardens at Paddington Basin (with Westminster as direct client), the Embassy Gardens development at Nine Elms, and most recently heading the team that won detailed planning consent for Ruby Triangle, one of the first significant sites to come forward within Southwark Council’s new vision for the Old Kent Road area.
