Michael McGuinness
Senior Architect
BArch MArch

Michael is a Senior Architect in our London studio and has over six years of industry experience. His expertise lies in the successful delivery of both low and high density residential-led projects.

His achievements include the estate regeneration of 298 homes with commercial space at Springfield University Hospital in south London. Additionally, Michael played a pivotal role in the development of Pease Pottage, a new countryside neighbourhood comprising 600 homes, nestled within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the south of Crawley. He also led the conversion and extension of Meridian House, a grade two listed former Townhall in Greenwich.

Michael’s passion lies in taking on challenging briefs and creating vibrant residential-led places that foster dynamic communities and harmoniously integrate with the local neighbourhood. Currently, he serves as the Lead Architect in an exciting estate regeneration project at Kew Retail Park. Collaborating closely with Richmond Borough Council, the client, and the public, he is dedicated to delivering a high-quality, sustainable, mixed-use development that will breathe new life into Kew, west London.

Michael’s involvement in Capital Court, a trio of residential buildings ranging from 9 to 14 storeys, has equipped him with extensive knowledge and expertise in off-site manufactured construction processes. He recognises the significant advantages these techniques offer over traditional construction methods.

Furthermore, Michael is an integral leader of our Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Group. He actively contributes to the creation of vibrant and inclusive urban communities by collaborating with organisations such as Tonic Housing, the UK’s first provider of LGBT+ affirmative retirement housing.

Beyond his professional pursuits, Michael is an avid DIY enthusiast, currently renovating his own apartment. He also maintains a strong commitment to fitness, often at the gym or indulging in his passion for bouldering during his spare time.

Our people are the heart of who we are.
