Will HowardSenior Associate
BA (Hons), DIP Arch, ARB
Will joined dRMM in 2014 and was made Associate in 2018. His role at dRMM is defined by efficient project leadership and studio-wide technical coordination. His consummate project running experience is supplemented by management of the studio’s software and hardware, as well as ongoing input to the studio’s future digital strategy.
Will has worked on a number of high-profile residential, commercial and educational projects at dRMM. Most notably, he ran the mixed-use project Wick Lane – a scheme comprising 175 homes with combined retail, workspace and light industrial units. Leading the project from pre-planning stages to completion, Will was primary contact for both client and consultant team whilst overseeing all administrative tasks related to resource and fees. In parallel, his work on Wick Lane fed into dRMM’s broader strategy for co-location design, furthering the studio’s ideas on modularity and flexibility as devices for redefining mixed-use typologies.
Aside from his work on Wick Lane, Will has contributed to Brill Place, a residential tower in Somers Town; Television Centre, a residential scheme in the former BBC headquarters; and Sky Car Park, a multi-storey car park with a perforated wrapped facade. Will’s work is characterised by user engagement, collaborative consultation, and typology-driven research. This combined experience informs a focus on maintaining dRMM’s compliance with evolving industry standards and building regulations.
Will values dRMM’s collaborative approach to making architecture and its refusal to pigeon-hole designers into rigid specialisms. He believes in leading by example and uses his role as Associate to strengthen the studio’s collective learning.
Before joining dRMM, he studied at the University of Huddersfield and Kingston University, followed by work in practice on education, research and laboratory buildings.
