Through offering a creative and engaging way forward, we can help unlock the potential of existing sites and buildings. We work closely between clients, craftsmen and builders, to create high quality, regional and contemporary design.
Our belief is that good contemporary architecture can breathe fresh life into existing situations, accommodating modern lifestyles whilst connecting people to nature and treading lightly on the planet.
BA [Hons] DIP [Arch] RIBA
Drawing and being outdoors are two things that Ian has always been fond of. Having worked as a young apprentice to a local master builder, Ian also discovered the skill and satisfaction to be found in the process of building. In architecture, he saw the potential of bringing together his passion for drawing with his enjoyment of working in a hands-on approach with materials and craftsmen.
Having gained a degree in Architecture from the University of Portsmouth, followed by a diploma from the Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London, Ian honed his professional skills, working with Bing Thom Architects in Vancouver, Canada and Arup Associates, and Allies and Morrison in London.
With over 20 years in the industry his design experience includes residential, urban design, cultural, sport, infrastructure, education and international development. Working in remote regions of the world such as the Himalayas, Ian came to understand the architectural significance of local culture, context and community.
Ian founded Ian Hazard Architects in 2012 with the aspiration to return to his beginnings, by creating a hands-on studio where high quality contemporary design is brought together with the act of building, in a specific response to the constraints and opportunities of each project.
