Alex Richards

Alex joined Hollaway Studio in 2016 and quickly became a Partner in 2018 through demonstrating his ability and passion to lead on the design and delivery of high-quality architectural projects across London and the South East.

Alex’s passion is in problem solving, be it a constrained site, complex brief or construction detail. He enjoys the discussion and critical thinking required to interrogate and resolve an issue to achieve a solution built on opportunities offered by existing context, or new ambition.

Alex has been involved with the delivery of Elwick Place, Ashford and lead the design and delivery of a new Concert Hall for Benenden School. Alex has secured a number of Paragraph 80 house consents across the region and is delivering a number of exceptional houses with innovative design and industry leading sustainability agendas.

Alex is equally responsible for the Kent and London studios, overseeing many aspects of their management and the overall running of the Practice. Alex’s overview of the Practice assists in its sustainable growth and direction.

In his spare time Alex can be found training for another sporting adventure or on his family’s farm in the North Downs where he is building his own family home.
