BA (Hons) Dip Arch RIBA

“What I do works when we agree the human purpose of a building.”

Mahmood has a unique background and range of experience for a UK based architect.

He qualified, contrary to the expectations of his teachers, which developed in him a desire to overcome the odds. After a period working in the UK he secured increasingly senior positions in Hong Kong and Singapore working on key commercial and large-scale infrastructure projects.

Returning to the UK with an unusually mature and accomplished portfolio he joined a number of leading UK practices gaining positions at BDP as an Associate Director and contributed to 7 years of growth for the organisation.

In 2010 he reached a fork in his professional road and decided to plough his own furrow. Working in a way that meant the quality and function designed into a building from the outset is still there at the end.

This means Mahmood works closely with clients: sharing solutions that may not always result in new construction; founding like-mindedness; being there to earn confidence and trust.

Some say ‘Uncle’ others say ‘avuncular’ either way he has become a valuable adviser, partner in initiatives and in some instances close friend to many customers over the years.
