Lecture Series | Simpson & Brown

This week EUSAS welcomes John Sanders from Simpson & Brown.

John has been a partner at Simpson & Brown since 1999. His role is to contribute to the management of the firm and to set and maintain standards of historical research, conservation approach and architectural design throughout the practice. John studied Fine Art at Central (London) School of Art and Design. He gained a post graduate diploma in Architectural Conservation at Edinburgh Heriot Watt University in 1988. Since joining Simpson & Brown, John has been responsible for over 500 conservation projects in successive roles as project administrator and designer, associate and partner in charge.

Founded in 1977 as an architectural practice, Simpson & Brown has evolved into a multi- disciplinary firm which now also offers archaeological, architectural history, heritage consultancy and master planning services. They aim to improve the quality of the built environment through scholarly conservation work and well-mannered contextual design that is true to its time and place. Whilst respecting and acknowledging the past, our architecture strives to respond to the challenges of the future, particularly with regard to sustainable design. Simpson & Brown also operate an archaeological division – Addyman Archaeology – which has extensive experience and expertise in constructional and field work, historic building analysis and specialist survey techniques.
