Roger Connolly was born in London in 1960. He studied at The Oxford Brookes School of Architecture finishing his studies and registering as an architect in 1990. In the early part of his career he worked in practices in London, Washington DC and Sydney. He has a wide range of experience from that time including city offices, shopping centres, sports facilities, luxury hotels, housing, retail outlets, pubs, exhibition stands, interiors and much more.
In the early nineties Roger chose to work full time as an artist ultimately to compliment his work as an architect. This included opening his own gallery in The Lanes in Brighton. Initially he produced architectural renderings in his own unique style but changed and developed over time as an artist and now prefers to make abstract art. Examples of his artwork are shown on the last link on the projects page
He now works full time as an architect exclusively on residential projects. He undertakes both new build and refurbishment work and relishes the challenge of transforming the dull and cramped english home into one which is comfortable, bright and a pleasure to live in. He is an all-round architect who deals with every aspect of the project from planning applications, construction design and detailing through to interior design. Aside to being both an artist and architect he also manages and builds his own projects. This site experience gives him a level of understanding of both on-site issues as well as project costs that many architects never grasp.
Roger is familiar with sacred geometry and the phi ratio which he incorporates into his designs. He has just submitted a scheme for approval which is heavily influence by Sacred Geometry. This is the scheme with the large heart window shown on the projects page.
Roger is currently living off grid building his own Grand Design, The Quartz, in Risby, Suffolk. The semi underground house is shown on the projects page.
He practices throughout East Anglia and North & East London.
