Richard Woolf



I lecture across all years of Historic Building Conservation at Kingston and the Building Crafts College on adaptive design, project management and the applications of skills in conservation. I approach teaching as a balance of practical skills with theoretical knowledge, giving students the ability to make informed judgements on the diverse range of challenges that conservation and architectural design presents.

I'm an architect and industrial designer in private practice and academia, external examiner at the Architectural Association and tutor within RIBA Studio at Oxford Brookes University. My practice was featured in the Architecture Foundation New Architects 2, Britain's best young architectural practices.

I studied at Kingston, guided by Bryn Riches, Tim Bell, Sarah Wigglesworth, Trevor Garnham, Sherry Bates and Nic Clear and I was RIBA Presidents Medal Bronze runner up and Silver exhibited. I'm proud to be both an alumni and lecturer at Kingston School of Art.
