           Martin Stevens MCIAT                   Associate


I began working in Architecture back in 2004 at a local practice whilst studying part-time on a construction course. This exposure to both live briefs alongside tuition gave me a solid knowledge base to grow and develop in the field of architecture. I remained with the practice for 7 years, where I met Simon and William before moving on to another firm. I spent 5 years working within the retail and care sectors, mainly focused on large scale care village developments in the south of the UK from inception to delivery, for a number of well-established national client organisations. I then re-joined Simon and Will at Harris McCormack Architects, and since then I have qualified as a Chartered Architectural Technologist. I strive to deliver the best possible service with all of the projects I work on, whether it’s a minor alteration or a multi-million pound development.


Lucy Ward BSc (Hons) ARB RIBA  Architect


I have been working as an architect for over twenty years, with substantial experience in the residential and conservation sector, particularly in the wider Peterborough region.

With a Post-Graduate Diploma in Sustainable Development and Climate Change, I am particularly interested in low-energy design and I have designed two low-energy houses in the past.

I worked as a sole practitioner locally for a number of years before joining the practice, and I bring this wide-ranging experience into Harris McCormack Architects.

The world of architecture and design is fascinating for me, and offers a never-ending source of inspiration both in my working day and in my wider life.

Previously working in a number of varied disciplines, I am equipped with a cocktail of qualities that make me an unusual character in the studio. I am approachable, patient, dedicated and conscientious, creating intuitive and considered solutions with a keen eye for well executed contemporary design.
