Prior to Louis de Soisson, Robin worked with Mador Architects on a number of large-scale holiday complexes and golf resorts with a particular focus in France. Here, he developed the design of a 164-unit holiday village with spa, hotel and restaurants and was responsible for obtaining the French local authority permissions including a public enquiry. He was also responsible for detailed design and procurement, working with a bilingual team to build out the initial phases on site.
Other highlights include work for Sidell Gibson on the prestigious mixed-use development “One New Change” designed by Jean Nouvel in which he worked on the complex public areas of the retail spaces. Here, the complicated geometry and unusual materials presented a unique challenge in terms of design and technical realisation.
He is passionate about the interplay of technical execution in construction next to the human experience of our built environment.
He believes that the design process is akin to conversation and that its success is dependent on listening to contributions, responding to constraints, and always focussing on the driving elements of a project.
Amongst the variety of projects underway at Louis de Soissons, Robin is a key design team member for the large scale automotive development for H.R. Owen at Hatfield Business Park that will begin construction in 2021.
