Let's get things rolling; let's talk architecture and design.
ARB Registered & RIBA Chartered Architect
Amer has over twenty years of architectural design and building experience. Now based in Sheffield, he has worked across the country and abroad.
Intro: "I am very much a client-centric architect and designer. I believe, it's strong, open and honest relationships that lead to good architecture being built. A client needs to have confidence in their architect and it's through the quality of our design and service, that we gain our client's trust; we work hard to achieve this and more importantly, retain it. Together, a client and architect united as a team, can always achieve far more than they both thought possible".
Experience: "I studied and worked in both the north and south of England. I have also gained a tremendous amount of experience working in Munich for Schmidt Schicketanz and Partners and later for the Pritzker Prize winning, Japanese architect, Fumihiko Maki. Returning to the UK, I spent several years at two 'AJ top 100' practices (in fact, one was in the 'top 5'). In 2006, the time was right to start my own firm in Sheffield - it was a daunting prospect and it's been inevitably hard work, but I've never looked back - I simply love working with clients, designing and constructing buildings.
I believe, in architecture the construction details are as important as the 'Grand Design'. Every building, big or small, when done well, will make a positive contribution to people's lives."
Background: Originally from Doncaster, Amer now lives in the south west of Sheffield with his wife and their two children (12 and 16). Until very recently he was on the Board of Governors at St Wilfred's School. He is also very proud of his involvement in the initial stages of the St Wilfrid's Residential Project. When not designing, he seams to have found himself a new career as a 'taxi driver': ferrying the kids to football, dance classes, the cinema and the 'all too many' parties (but he loves it really).
When he does have some rare time to himself he loves to draw, take photographs and read a 'good' book. Along with the occasional social game of football or squash.
