Mint Architecture was started in 2010, run by Mint Findlay, based in Harpenden.
As a busy working mum, Mint knows what a family wants from their property and how to make spaces work most efficiently. Mint specialises in creating designs for residential properties- extensions, refurbishments, remodelling and one-off new build contemporary family houses.
Mint leads the design and management of all projects, with the support of a small close team of qualified architectural technicians when required. Mint has contacts throughout the construction and design industry and can offer a full range of architectural (RIBA) services from initial concept design through to project management on site. Mint can carry out bespoke furniture design and a complete interior design service if required.
Designs grow from the inside out and vice versa so that the practicalities and logistics of the space planning are considered in equal measure to the aesthetics and architectural style.
With a background in Education and Hospitality sectors, Mint Architecture can also carry out commercial projects.
Mint lives in Harpenden with her husband and three young children.
Since qualifying 15 years ago, Mint has gained a wide scope of experience, working with well-established practices nationally and internationally, on projects ranging from £50k to £10m. Mint is a graduate of both Architecture and Furniture Design.
