New Design Lead for P+HS Architects

We are delighted to announce that another of our talented team has been appointed to the position of Design Lead.

Senior Architect Martha Mackinnon has shown her passion for every aspect of building design since she joined P+HS Architects almost 10 years ago. Whether it’s a tiny break out space or a £40m hospital, Martha brings equal ambition to every project, evidenced in some of her award-winning work at Foss Park and Hammerson House.

Martha joins colleague Patrick Kelly in her new role leading on Design at P+HS, and is looking forward to championing excellence and sharing her extensive knowledge across the practice.

Martha said: “As a practice we have a complete approach to design. We create buildings that not only function efficiently but environments where service users can find respite and healing and where clinical staff feel enabled by the buildings design.

Designing healthcare facilities is challenging and every design element must be carefully considered to create a functional and aesthetically pleasing environment.

The design lead provides the opportunity to ensure that the user journey is always at the forefront of our decision making and that we continue to create healing environments that promote well-being and recovery.”

Commenting on the new appointment, Director James Almond said: "We are delighted to support the growth and development of our teams. Working alongside the other Practice Leads in the continued development of P+HS, as a Design Lead Martha will provide a source of inspiration and insight for our clients and teams to utilise on schemes moving forwards. The Board of Directors are looking forward to providing ongoing encouragement and support for Martha in her new role."
