After 18 years of running a partnership, Wells Mackereth, the partners James and Sally have amicably agreed to go their separate ways. They have individually set up two new separate companies.
James has restructured the original practice as James Wells Architects. His team is based in Farringdon and is continuing with the existing portfolio of clients. Joanna Scott has joined the practice in a new role of Marketing Director. Jo has over 20 years experience specialising in communications and media relations for the creative industries. Jo’s mission is to bring a clearer, more strategic approach to communications and new business. Impressed with the team’s attention to detail, quality of design and level of competence, Jo’s role is to help grow the practice and increase the size of projects as well as extending the client base.
The original practice, Wells Mackereth Architects, was founded by James in 1995, and focused on the design of private houses, retail, bar and restaurant projects, commercial and residential developments and arts projects. The practice grew to 12 staff and over its lifespan James and his team completed more than 180 built projects typically in a range of contract values from £ 400K to £1.5M, extending up to £ 6M.
