Christian joined Orms in 2008, becoming an Associate in 2017. Prior to his work in London, Christian’s portfolio includes projects in Sydney, Berlin and Glasgow, ranging from large and small scale residential projects to commercial buildings; places of worship; schools and landscape architecture.
In 2019, Christian completed the conversion of the iconic Camden Town Hall Annexe at Kings Cross, now the landmark boutique hotel “The Standard London“. The project saw the existing brutalist municipal building extended and extensively remodelled, with the addition of an expressive steel and glass structure at the top of the existing white concrete building to form the hotel’s 10th floor restaurant and bar space. The change of use and the added transparency makes it a meaningful contributor to the busy area with its two grade I listed stations.
As Project Architect at Orms, Christian has also completed significant educational projects including new buildings for Sherborne and Highgate Schools and a number of commercial projects across the City of London.
Currently, he is leading the commercial refurbishment and extension of a Grade II listed building at Old Bailey, due for completion in Spring 2021.
Christian is experienced in all RIBA stages and leads Orms’ detailing research, and has a particular interest in 20th Century design and town planning.
“Our European heritage gives us a uniquely complex range of artistic expressions which follow universal principles while still being deeply rooted in very local traditions. This diversity in art, culture and also architecture is not a contradiction, but rather the manifestation of an ever-evolving process. Our cities of today are as much a reflection of our past; as of our values of today; and our dreams for the future.”
