Cat Martin

Bio

I have been a fully qualified architect for over twenty years (AA Dipl, ARB), designing buildings and products over a variety of scales spanning residential, transportation, and commercial schemes for top-tier architecture practices in London and Sydney. I started my own practice MartinArchitects on return from Australia. The majority of my private projects have been contemporary residential in London & Bristol, but also a winery in France, Airstream motel in the USA, a prefabricated house from Latvia, and an island holiday home in Paratii Brazil. I moved from London to Bristol in 2007, but undertake work in both cities. Further information can be provided if required.
