Luke Cooper


Qualified in 2007, Luke worked as a senior architect for Austin-Smith:Lord for over 7 years. He then moved to Aecom, ultimately becoming regional director for architecture in the north of England. He has gained a wealth of experience across almost all sectors of the architectural profession. His in-depth involvement in the feasibility, design and management of commercial, healthcare, cultural and industrial projects gives him a unique ability to apply skills from different building types to an individual scheme.

Reinterpretation and conservation of existing buildings with a mixture of new and old is where his real passion lies. His comprehensive understanding of conservation techniques and processes has been formed through considerable analysis and implementation of English Heritage and ICOMOS guidelines on schemes such as St George’s Quarter and Qasr Al Hosn in Abu Dhabi. Luke compiled the Conservation and Management Plan for the high-profile cultural project in Abu Dhabi and is in the process of applying for RIBA Conservation Officer Status.

Luke is a very competent designer, design tutor at Liverpool University and project architect. He has worked for a series of large and small clients and consultants in Britain, Europe and the Middle East, including General Electric and Rolls Royce. He is able to understand the different processes, uses and client requirements for all building types and successfully convert these factors into efficient and effective architectural solutions that add value and quality.
