What we’re up to this month – July

July will be another busy month for us – with new appointments for North Cadbury Neighbourhood Plan, two listed buildings, one in Bridport, the other in Upottery, a project in each of the three counties in which we operate.  The most interesting development is that RIBA Part I student Helena Jenkinson is joining us as a summer intern from the University of the West of England.  She is going to have hands-on experience of how we work, seeing designs evolve and repairs being implemented on site.

It is such a privilege to be selected for the summer internship with Angel Architecture. I am really looking forward to working alongside Kim and experiencing all aspects of her specialist business. 

As Conservation has been such a strong interest of mine, this opportunity is invaluable and I am very eager to learn about the life of an architect from Kim first-hand. I cannot wait for the internship to begin and to join the team for the summer.

I’ve written a piece with Lloyd & White listing five tips for maintenance of your listed heritage home this season. You can read the article here.

News Update for April

I am delighted to have received such warm and positive feedback from one of my UWE RIBA 2020 students who I’ve been mentoring.

Thank you so much for an invaluable experience gained through your mentoring. Your professional manner, the interesting and various site visits, the individuals we got the chance to meet and the opportunity to get an insight into the life of a busy architect made the experience truly unforgettable and valuable to us all.

Receiving this hands on experience – although it was only two days – taught us much more about Grade II Listed buildings, conservation and planning, than we were taught sitting in lectures.

Flexibility with the schedule, constant effective communication and the fact that we could ask anything at any time, made us really comfortable and we were sure that we were in good hands! Thank you for your kindness and all the work and energy you put in. We couldn’t have asked for a better mentor!

Best wishes,

Klaudia Kery, UWE RIBA Architecture student

In light of the current Coronavirus crisis, we would like to assure our clients, both current and prospective, that the nature of our business remains roughly unaffected and we are operating as normal. We can still produce information and applications for both planning permission and listed building consent. We can also prepare appeals and provide advice. Site visits are not possible at the current time, but we can conduct much of the onsite work via video call, which we will set up and guide our clients through when necessary.

What we’re working on this month: March

 Four final year UWE students of Architecture & Planning are being mentored by Angel Architecture and were shown works in progress on the scaffolding at Lyme Regis seafront. The works have been carried out with listed building consent to replace sash windows with laminated glass and new lead flat roofs with cast iron rainwater goods by local joiners JWJ and Rowsell Roofing.
