Since 1995 HMH Architects have comprised two partners, John Kinmond and Andrew Watson, both having worked for the practice since 1977 and 1987 respectively. Following John’s retirement in April 2018, Andrew carried on the practice as Principal, supported by myself as Associate Partner.
With great sadness Andrew passed away in December 2021. For some years we spoke of succession in the practice and of Andrew making me a Partner. However, due to various circumstances, the time was not right.
In January, I took over the business with the aim of carrying on Andrew’s legacy as well as those he worked alongside, and before him. Andrew was a mentor and Architect of great knowledge, experience and distinction, but most of all a great man and someone who will be missed greatly by all who knew him. It is my privilege and motivation to carry on Andrew’s work and to continue to grow and make HMH Architects a success.
Recently we have moved premises from Enterprise House in Team Valley, where we were been based since 1985, to the Design Works in Felling, It is an exciting move which should help provide further opportunities and potential for growth. I look forward to an exciting period ahead and I would like to thank our loyal client base for their continued support.
