Founded in 2009, we have built a reputation for creating outstanding buildings and spaces regardless of project scale, budget or ambition.

Our work is defined by a sensitive yet aspirational approach: our inventiveness, judgement and tactical awareness appeals to clients who seek boldness, ingenuity and imagination without sacrificing the practical demands of cost, deadline and delivery.

We believe our clients share our view that excellence in architecture requires a profound respect for the past, an acute awareness of the present, and the ability to anticipate the demands of the future. As a London practice we frequently work on constrained, urban sites; often in conservation areas or within the curtilage of listed buildings. In every case our aim is to complement and enhance the existing condition; to consider not just our site but the wider context and our civic responsibilities. We appreciate, and never ignore, the economic, social and financial pressures which drive construction.

Effective and open communication is an essential part of the architectural design process and is exceptionally important to our practice. We strive to stay at the forefront of 3D visualization and production information technology to aid and enhance collaboration between all parties. This rapport encourages an open-minded and varied approach to design, resulting in work which is consistent in quality, but not uniform in style. Buildings can be exuberant or restrained, colourful or quiet. They represent our creative interpretations of the objectives, values and aspirations of our clients.

We design for a sustainable future, whether reusing existing buildings or making new architecture. Our aim is to create buildings that respect the environment, the needs of our clients and the wellbeing of occupants.

The Morrow + Lorraine studio is a tight-knit team of talented people drawn from leading universities and top practices. Our low turnover of staff is testimony to the long-term commitment of the practice to our most precious asset.

Agata Malinowska

BA (Hons)
Architectural Assistant

Agata studied at the School of Architecture and Design at the University of Brighton. Her architectural career stems from an interest in drawing and she is passionate about the potential to explore design and graphics within this context. Originally from Poland she came to the UK attracted by the creative approach to the teaching of architecture, which suits her multi-talented skill set.

In 2018 she was an RIBA Bronze Medal nominee as well as the winner of an RIBA South East Student Award.

Agata has an ability to visualise projects and this combined with creativity and excellent design skills brings an individuality and insight to her work at Morrow + Lorraine. For the major conservation project Buckingham Palace Road, she produced an illustration depicting how the building might look in 20 years’ time.  Her illustration of a sustainable vision for London – a collaboration with Stephanie Crombie – was published in ‘New London Architecture: 40 Best Ideas for London’.

Her ideas and drawing skills were an integral part of the team’s work, for the early stages of an exciting community regeneration scheme in Croydon, Taberner House. She is an energetic organiser for Morrow + Lorraine’s social and cultural events, including being an important member of the team that organised our open-studio event as part of the London Festival of Architecture in 2019.

Tony qualified as an architect from the University of Sheffield and first joined us in 2012. He worked with us for four years before leaving to work with a practice specialising in the housing sector.

Florina Mihaila

Architect

Florina Mihaila

BA, MA (Hons) ARB OAR (Order of Architects Romania)
Architect

She originally studied architecture in Romania, then came to the UK and worked for Spheron Architects and was involved in the award-winning Belarusian Memorial Chapel, the only wooden church in London.

Florina is a firm believer in the potential of technology to change the way we work, with a particular interest in using Building Information Management (BIM) to synchronise the work of different teams on a variety of projects. She is altruistic with this knowledge and is always researching new ways to use BIM, 3D modelling and other software to benefit all we do.

When she had the opportunity to work on the design and organisational side of a large project, Buckingham Palace Road, she streamlined the technology and improved our design process.

Frank Gilks

Senior Associate

Frank Gilks

BSc (Hons) DipArch MArch
Senior Associate

Frank is excited by the possibilities of 3D modelling, visualisation and imaging, and he also has a strong interest in graphics. He is exploring how we use technology to push our designs and improve communications with our clients, partners and stakeholders. He studied at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, before taking a position at Heatherwick Studio and at DSP Architecture.

Frank is particularly drawn to the early stages of our projects, utilising 3D technology as a powerful design tool for concept design, pre-application and planning. He played a major part in developing the concept for Clifftops, one of our most sensitive projects on a stretch of the Jurassic Coast, which successfully gained planning approval. This is a UNESCO World Heritage site, between two listed castles and above a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Five new holiday lodges nestle in the landscape, maximising sea views and complementing the rugged surroundings.

Frank has recently completed work on a 3D model for a large commercial building, although this work is specific to the client and the context, his work here has the potential to inform our approach to other equally complex projects. With every element of a design, he adds to our digital knowledge base, enabling solutions for future projects.

Outside of his work at Morrow + Lorraine, he has undertaken several home-refurbishment projects, putting his design skills to the test in a very different context.

On the project side, Gavin is the lead architect for our prestigious project at Buckingham Palace Road. He was first involved in the retail part of the project when he joined us in 2012. When a new phase was announced more recently, he was instrumental in winning the pitch for Morrow + Lorraine. With the project secured, it was natural to make him the head of the team.

With many family members working in the construction industry, Gavin was familiar with construction sites long before he became an architect. He studied at Queen’s University Belfast and worked at two Belfast-based practices – Kennedy Fitzgerald and Neil Mathews – before joining Morrow + Lorraine.
