Paul is an accomplished architect with a portfolio that spans a broad variety of sectors. He is adept at leading projects from conception to completion, building consensus, engaging stakeholders, and navigating the complexities of planning and delivery in London.

Since joining KPF in 1998, Paul’s in-depth understanding of London’s development landscape has proved invaluable on a number of high-profile projects, such as Heron Tower (110 Bishopsgate), a building that set the precedent for a new generation of tall, sustainable buildings within the City of London.

Paul has also managed a number of complex adaptive reuse projects. At Panorama St Paul’s (81 Newgate Street), an outdated 1980s office building has been transformed into a contemporary mixed-use development and the new global headquarters for HSBC. For Southbank Tower, Paul led the conversion of a single-use office development into a mixed-used building, incorporating residences, offices, and an enhanced public . At Which? Headquarters, a part Grade II* listed, part concrete-framed 1980’s office building was retrofitted to a provide a modern workplace, featuring a striking new roof, sensitively designed to minimise the impact on local historic views and provide a multi-function space and terrace.

Paul’s international experience includes managing the design of a headquarters for Ziraat Bank, KPF’s first building in Turkey, as part of the city’s new financial district. An illustration of the value of craft in construction, the development features a free-standing, sculptural auditorium with a double-curved stone exterior shell.

Paul is a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and an Architects Registration Board (ARB) chartered architect in the UK.
