About Me

Barney Paul Bonner

RIBA Chartered Architect – BA(Hons) BArch DipArch

I have a passion for architecture and design which is grounded with a well-rounded experience of the construction industry, having worked in various Architectural Practices over the last 15 years.

I have worked in India on low cost schools, and primary healthcare facilities. This experience was followed by four years with BDP in London where I worked on numerous large retail, leisure and commercial projects in the UK, China, Poland and Tunisia, with typical project values in excess of
£100 million.

I moved back to the West Country in the summer of 2014 and joined Oxford Architects where I worked for over six years on many diverse and interesting projects across numerous sectors.

In 2020 I decided to start my own architectural practice to achieve a more consistent work / life balance and to concentrate on the type of work and projects that I enjoy.

I have traveled extensively and lived in various countries, such as Africa, India and Islands in the Pacific ever since I was a child. This has allowed me to experience many diverse cultures and traditions which I believe has greatly helped in my overall design ability. I now live and work exclusively in the UK, and enjoy working from my studio in Clutton, North East Somerset.

I love sport especially cricket, rugby, and golf. I have been training and competing in triathlons for several years now and successfully completed several half Ironman distance events. I am currently training for my first full Ironman in Lanzarote next year (2021). Fingers crossed that Covid 19 doesn’t upset the plans like it did this year …
