Our story

The (predominantly) residential design service offered by Atoll Architecture is the key part of Ian’s bigger limited company portfolio. Ian takes great pride in the integrity of this work, and always strives to deliver great design, customer service and professionalism in equal measure. Up until recently, his architectural work has relied almost entirely on gaining new commissions via word-of-mouth recommendations and referral – rather than be the result of advertising and marketing. However, in an attempt to broaden opportunities, Atoll Architecture now also advertise their services via affiliation to a number of vetted architect portals like ‘Love Renovate’.

Through other Atoll strands, Ian also pursues other artistic, non-profit and voluntary interests, working in the wider public realm. In doing this, he informally ploughs back the profits gained from his more commercial commissions to help sustain other cultural and community ‘placemaking’ affiliations. This includes volunteering and other negotiated pro bono work.

Ian qualified as a Chartered Architect over 30-years ago in 1990, following a 2-year VSO posting as Head Architect working for the Republic of Maldives’ Ministry of Education. After qualification he also worked for 2 further years in the tourist island design sector there. This spell overseas was then followed by 8-years working in the UK in both the community architecture and commercial sectors. For 4 years between 2000 and 2004, in a mid-career sabbatical, he began to expand on his parallel interests in the arts whilst on a temporary secondment as the Public Art & Architecture Officer for Arts Council England, North West. Following this, Ian launched Atoll, his self-styled ‘architecture and art collaborative’ in January 2005.

This practice has now been running for over 15 years (and 13 years as a limited company).
