Joshua Broomer


Joshua studied at the Mackintosh School of Architecture, the Bartlett and the University of Westminster – qualifying as an architect with distinction in 2019. His thesis project experimented with design methodologies of conserving and reusing existing buildings for public gain. He holds a wealth of experience on high profile projects, including the transformation of the former Smithfields Market into the new London Museum and an award winning mixed use development that was once a post sorting office in Holborn. During this time he worked across bespoke design elements exploring craftsmanship and innovative materials.

Since becoming part of the team at Nissen Richards Studio, Joshua has worked on a wide range of projects – achieving numerous planning approvals and completing a broad range of technical design packages. Projects include Sterling Gardens, a large residential development in Newbury, a group of barn conversions into finely detailed low energy homes in Sevenoaks and the refurbishment of a listed house and conversions of existing ancillary buildings in Jersey. Joshua is currently working as project architect on a mixed use development in Whitechapel and the extension and refurbishment of Clwb Ifor Bach, the iconic music venue in Cardiff. Each of these projects draw on his experience of applying individual and context specific approaches to existing buildings and complex sites – a challenge which he revels in.

Joshua also coordinates our CPDs with a focus on up to date industry standards alongside alternative sustainable materials.
