In March 2019, after three years working with one another, Chris Bulmer and Tim Counter established Bulmer + Counter Architects.
We have a passion for creating architecture which is not only beautiful but also functional. We understand that no two projects are alike; and it is well thought-out design based on the idiosyncrasies of each Client’s brief, site and context which often make a project great.
A variety of personal and professional experience is brought into every project with the aim of creating spaces that are innovative, unique and of exceptional quality.
We operate from two studios located in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, covering projects in London and the Home Counties.
Chris completed his studies at Newcastle University, winning an award for his undergraduate dissertation which explored the physical and psychological impacts of architecture. As well as believing buildings can better our physical and mental well-being Chris also has a passion for creating architecture which are sustainable and contribute to the natural environment.
Chris has a range of residential and commercial of experience, including working on St Pancras International. He has a motivation to create spaces which are beautifully detailed, and embrace and enhance the client brief, site and context.
Away from the desk, Chris found be found in the garden or reading fantasy novels.
Tim studied at Manchester and Kingston Universities, prior to directorships in a London architecture and design practice, then co-founding Counter & King Architects in 1993. Tim took the role of Chairman of the Hertfordshire Association of Architects for the millennium year and continues to take an interest in the role of architecture in society.
Tim has a breadth of practical experience in hands-on site work and enjoys participating in taking design through execution. He also has a history in mediation, which can be invaluable in a construction context.
At the desk, Tim has a particular interest in proportion, light and timeless materials.
