About John Bowmer
London practice (established 2014) working mostly on listed terraced houses of the mid to late Georgian period, mostly listed Grade II
I trained at the Royal College of Art, London before joining the office of James Stirling and Michael Wilford where I worked on projects in Europe and Asia.
More recently I have worked on UK projects focusing on listed buildings in London and the Home Counties. While working at Chris Dyson Architects LLP I worked on a wide range of domestic refurbishment and extension projects culminating in a private house in Wapping which won the 2014 AJ Small Project of the Year Award and 'Best Housing Development 1-5 Units' category of the 2014 Brick Awards.
I established my own practice in London in 2014 continuing my work on listed houses and in particular terraced houses of the mid to late Georgian period, mostly listed Grade II.
