dRMM director Philip Marsh has been appointed to the Lambeth Design Review panel to provide design guidance on proposed developments in the borough.
The panel brings together leading practitioners across architecture, planning, urban design, conservation, access, landscape design and engineering. Panel members will visit sites, review emerging developments and advise on proposals.
As a passionate advocate of great architecture and urban design, Philip’s approach has always been to question the norm and think laterally to raise the ambition and possibilities of each project. His in-depth understanding of the planning process and excellent success rate in securing planning permission are testament to his ability to balance both commercial requirements and design quality.
Philip commented ‘I’m delighted to be joining the Lambeth Design Review Panel. The development proposals in Lambeth present an important opportunity to provide the jobs and housing London needs, which require high quality architecture and placemaking.
I am looking forward to helping match the emerging developments in Lambeth with the council’s aspirations, and create places for people to live, work, play and relax that improve the quality of their lives.’
