MA (Cantab) Dip Arch RIBA
Jonathan believes strongly in environmental architecture from first principles, in realising the delights of place, light and natural materials and in celebrating craftsmanship on site.
He established Hetreed Ross Architects with Ann Ross in 2001 in order to focus on smaller scale work more closely related to clients and occupants, where vitally important environmental design can be closely and pragmatically matched to people’s needs and aspirations.
Project experience in recent years has included new, extended and refurbished houses designed to Passivhaus principles together with bespoke community and commercial schemes. These projects have been developed with the aim of producing buildings perfectly tailored to the clients’ needs with integrated and robust sustainable solutions.
Jonathan is an EASA (Ecclesiastical Architects & Surveyors Association) member and Church Architect and provides these architectural services to a number of local churches in and around Bath.
40 years of experience includes four years on site and in design and build gaining invaluable practical expertise. Previously a partner at Feilden Clegg Architects (now FCBStudios), Jonathan spent 16 years working on a wide range of environmental projects.
Ann Ross and Jonathan are co-authors of the best-selling The Architect’s Pocket Book, now in its 5th edition, which brings together a wealth of useful information that architects need on a daily basis, an essential source of information for anyone, from architecture students, to construction professionals.
Jonathan is author of The Damp House: A Guide to the Causes and Treatment of Dampness. An invaluable book which helps readers to understand and solve simple problems themselves and to evaluate various solutions offered to them by professionals.
