Mint Architecture

Mint Architecture was established by Mint Findlay in 2010,  initially operating from South Kensington in London before relocating to Harpenden nine years ago.


Mint is a fully qualified RIBA, RIAS & ARB chartered architect, and a graduate from the prestigious Bartlett School of Architecture. Prior to Mint Architecture, Mint worked as the project architect on a number of multi-million pound projects across sectors for award- winning AJ100 commercial practices in Edinburgh, Melbourne & London. She developed extensive technical expertise and knowledge of construction, and the coordination required in leading multidisciplinary teams.

Drawing on her expertise and understanding of family needs, Mint Architecture specialises in family home design. Mint is passionate about unlocking the potential in every property, bringing enthusiasm and creativity. Her designs thoughtfully rebalance the architecture to enhance its appeal and functionality, whilst creating inspiring and uplifting spaces. Mint Architecture specialises in whole-house remodelling, extensions, refurbishments, and new builds.


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. We can offer a full range of architectural (RIBA) services from initial concept design through to project management on site. Mint can also 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 consult on commercial projects.​
