Chris Patience
BA (Hons) MArch (Hons) RIBA ARB

Educated at the University of Sheffield, Chris has worked with EllisMiller since 2008, becoming a director in 2010. His first project was the RIBA award-winning £24 million Catmose Campus, combining community, education and arts facilities in one site. He then went on to deliver the £75 million Shoreditch Village and has since led a number of mixed-use developments across London.

Chris’s work reflects his passion for architecture that exhibits a conceptual clarity. His own work demonstrates a keen eye for detail and he plays a large part in maintaining the high levels of design excellence across the practice. Chris particularly enjoys the challenge of working on constrained brownfield sites – pockets of forgotten land that have the potential to be unlocked. He has a thorough understanding of the complexities of the planning system and has a proven record of achieving difficult consents.
