Peter Baynes - Director
Alan Mitchell - Director
Peter studied at Canterbury School of Architecture and qualified as an architect in 1983. He was an associate director at Powell Moya Partnership leading design teams on large scale projects before leaving, with colleague Alan Mitchell, in 1995 to form Baynes and Mitchell Architects.
His wide experience extends from large, complex new-build and historic projects to small-scale residential and commercial commissions often involving listed and other precious buildings.
His work is defined by an acute attention to detail and a willingness to experiment with form and material to create innovative and timeless design. He is currently working on a complex residential refurbishment and a number of commercial projects.
Alan studied at the Architectural Association and qualified as an architect in 1989. After working for Branson Coates and Powell Moya Partnership he joined forces with Peter Baynes to form Baynes and Mitchell Architects in 1995 building a portfolio and establishing a practice with the ability to undertake large and complex projects. His experience from working on intensive conservation projects for clients including the Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust has established him as a leader in this field – and particularly in the painstaking integration of modern elements into historic fabric. He is currently working on a number of projects for private, commercial and public sector clients.
