With over 25 years’ experience in architecture, Mik set up Planet Architecture to further his goal of producing ethically and ecologically sound homes and buildings.
Mik is highly-qualified in his field (BA (Hons) Architecture; Dip. Arch. ARB, RIBA, HNC Building Studies) and well-regarded for his professional abilities, but he is particularly renowned for his friendly and approachable manner.
His local knowledge ensures that projects are sympathetic to their context and environment.
Outside the office: When he’s not at the drawing board, Mik can be found watching motorsports, restoring classic cars, cycling, canoeing or turning his hand to a bit of DIY.

At 4 years old we’re not sure whether we’re allowed to officially call Juno a member of staff.
Her drawing ability leaves a lot to be desired and she’s certainly not getting the minimum wage.
You’re more likely to find her under one of the desks or ensuring that there are no left-overs at lunch time, than doing a fair day’s work, but having Juno around makes the workplace that little bit happier.
