TALK: Re-imagining and Restoration – The Creative Reuse of Old Buildings

Saturday 15 June, 3:30 – 5:00pm

As part of our In Focus Fortnight: Architecture series of exhibitions and events we are joined for a talk on a topic close to Messums Wiltshire’s heart (following the restoration of our listed tithe barn), Reimagining and Restoration – The Creative Reuse of Old Buildings by Julia Barnard, Mike Stiff, Jonathan Tuckey and Roger Zogolovitch.

Mike Stiff BA Hons, Dip Arch, ARB, RIBA, FRSA formed Stiff & Trevillion with Andy Trevillion in the early 1980’s. Over the years he has taught at Westminster, Brighton and Sheffield Universities. Today he works primarily on central London commercial projects although Stiff & Trevillion designed and built the Pod inside the Messums Wiltshire tithe barn.

Roger Zogolovitch is the founder and creative director of Solidspace. He is a qualified architect with 40 years experience of design and development. He is known in the industry as a progressive thinker – always striving to create projects that delight, engage and push the boundaries of how architecture can enhance our cities. Roger was the director of the Infrastructure and Development course at the London School of Economics, and lectures regularly on regeneration policy throughout the UK.

Jonathan Tuckey founded his multi-disciplinary design practice in 1999, which has developed an international reputation for specialising in the transformation and remodeling historic buildings. He originally studied anthropology and this has shaped his approach to the ways that spaces and places are used, exploring the layers of built heritage and the dialogue this creates between different eras. Jonathan has taught on this subject at Oxford Brookes University, London Metropolitan University and Kingston University, and has long been one of the leading advocates for adapting old buildings for modern uses.

Julia Barnard is an interior designer with a thorough knowledge of building technique and planning consent. She specialises in the renovation and decoration of listed buildings and gardens. Fundamental to her work is creating beautiful, functional spaces that relate to the landscape outside.
