OMI Architects


Engaging with Existing Buildings

Associate Architect Phil Etchells will be delivering a lecture this afternoon to Arts University Bournemouth interior architecture & design students on the design of ‘retrofit’ projects and the specific tactics and skills required to realise them.
Using a series of case study refurbishment projects, delivered in the last 5 years, Phil will talk about OMI’s approach to working and engaging with existing and historic buildings.  Specifically the lecture will focus on OMI’s experience of using creative design solutions and successfully applying these to differing project types across a range of building ages and significance.  The lecture will highlight a variety of projects but will focus on work at the Mustard Tree and Fourways in Manchester and Manresa House in Birmingham.
