New design director appointed


Laurence Associates has appointed chartered architect Lee Morris as design director.

Morris has more than 30 years of local and international experience overseeing a diverse range of design projects and developing close relationships with clients and contractors.

Morris recently moved back to the UK from overseas after nearly 17 years, most recently in Saudi Arabia with The Diriyah Gate Development company and before that, the United Arab Emirates, Dubai and Abu Dhabi where for seven years he led multi-disciplined design and engineering teams for Atkins.

“It’s amazing to finally come home after working overseas for many years to join a well-established, highly respected and award-winning planning-led architectural practice in Laurence Associates in the heart of Cornwall.

“After working on many major projects abroad, I am really looking forward to working collaboratively on a range of smaller but no less challenging projects/sites to create exceptional high-end residential, hospitality and commercial property schemes with our talented in house architectural, planning and landscape teams.”

Meanwhile, Laurence Associates has attained Royal Institute of British Architects Chartered Practice Status in addition to its chartered status with the Royal Town Planning Institute and Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists.
