Richard Sloman, Director, Nye Saunders

Richard Sloman 

 BA (Arch) Hons., Dipl. Arch., (Hons.), RIBA


Richard joined Nye Saunders for a summer back in 1997, and then returned to us full-time in 1999, just before he qualified as an architect. Having always enjoyed drawing, Richard loves the problem-solving element of working as an architect - he likes meeting new people and understanding their problems, which he can then go on to solve through good design. Happily, he also takes great satisfaction in navigating the complexities of the planning system!

Richard cites a range of influences and inspirations on his work. These include CFA Voysey and Edwin Lutyens for their work in the Arts and Crafts movement, Alvar Alto for his use of natural materials and connection with the Finnish landscape and Future Systems for the way in which they showed that architecture can be more than creating a building.

Some of Richard’s most notable projects include The Performing Arts Centre at Tormead School, Guildford and Undershaw, Conan Doyle’s residence, transformed into Stepping Stones – a school for children with Special Educational Needs.  

When not working, Richard loves nothing better than getting behind the wheel – or under the bonnet – of his two classic cars. As the proud owner of a Jaguar Mk II and a Ford Cortina, he’s often to be found at classic car shows across the country.


Somewhere in the countryside with lots of garaging and amazing views. It would draw on the Arts and Crafts tradition and have a strong connection with the landscape.
