Chris Allan

Architectural Director

Graduating from Newcastle University in 2007, Chris has worked with Graham and Tanja for over 15 years and was one of the first team members of Gradon Architecture from our inception and, as part of our management team, he continues to play a significant role in the progression and evolution of the practice.

Inspired by the Modern Movement, Chris’s desire to create rational, pragmatic, yet beautiful architecture sees him play a key role in design reviews throughout the practice.

Chris has a wealth of experience of successfully delivering projects in a range of diverse sectors. His particular sector expertise lies in Residential, Industrial, Specialist Care and Education. Consistent throughout all sector expertise however, is his ability to communicate with our clients and guide them through all design stages.

Chris enjoys the challenge of building and maintaining client relationships and exceeding their expectations.

Outside of architecture, Chris is a keen traveller and also has an active interest in his own development projects, where he likes to get his hands dirty and gain practical experience of delivering architecture. If he’s not building something then you will find him under the bonnet of a classic Porsche 911 or a VW!
