Michael Hill

Consultant Architect

Michael joined The Louis de Soissons Partnership in 1984 and after working in the large WGC office – when architects still sat quietly in rows at their drawing boards on long work benches – he then spent time in the Southampton and York offices and became a Partner in 2003.

He ran the Practice’s Mayfair office during the 80’s and 90’s, a time when London really felt like the greatest city in the world.  Michael now works for Louis de Soissons on a consultancy basis.

Personal Specialism / Skills

Mike has worked on many significant projects including the design and construction of an eight storey residential block, built in the newly established Cultural Quarter of Stratford, East London years before this area became the contemporary focus of the Olympic Park. Built above the active service yard, this was the last part of the major refurbishment of a vast vacant 1950’s department store in to a high tech communications facility.
