Oliver Moore

Senior Associate

Oliver’s excellent communication skills enable him to assist clients and building-users with the conception and development of a project design brief that thoroughly fulfils their requirements.

He enjoys the evolutionary process of consultation with stakeholders throughout the design period to ensure the success of a final building-in-use.

With a broad range of experience across design stages, from competitions to on-site delivery, Oliver is used to engaging with clients as varied as charities, universities, commercial organisations and housing developers. He has a detailed understanding of the complexity of working with existing buildings, and listed structures, which he gained an insight into during a major refurbishment of the Bodleian Library for Oxford University.

Oliver is currently involved with a number of educational design and masterplanning projects across the Southern UK and London regions. These include London Metropolitan University, Berkhamsted School, and QEH school in Bristol. He has extensive experience in higher education, having delivered a suite of projects for the Arts University Bournemouth; specialist technical facilities for photography, design for wellbeing and support in a new Student Services Building, and adaptive re-use of student residential units, which were converted to design studios. Oliver has also been involved in the development of Passivhaus projects such as residential modules for St Hilda’s College Oxford.  Additionally, Oliver has a wealth of experience in the independent schools sector, having worked on a new library for Canford School, a teaching building at Radley College, and a Charterhouse School masterplan.

Oliver studied architecture at Cardiff and Westminster Universities, graduating in 2005, and registering as an architect in 2007. He gained professional experience at a number of international architectural practices, including Johnson Pilton Walker (formerly Denton Corker Marshall) in Sydney, and Wilkinson Eyre Architects in London, before joining Design Engine Architects in 2011.
