The Architect Studio, based in Cambridgeshire, was founded in 2021 by Patricia Forero-Senior, out of the desire to work on bespoke projects with clients that require architectural solutions and expert advice to resolve issues encountered in historic settings.
We are a RIBA Chartered Practice, which means we are endorsed and promoted by the Royal Institute of British Architects due to our commitment to the highest standards of professionalism, best practice, and ethics.
We are also signatories to the Heritage Declares Campaign.
'TAS were very easy to work with, developed innovative design options, and provided quick and efficient service. We look forward to having the opportunity to work with them again in the future.'

‘Now, more than ever, it is crucial to recognise that historic buildings can be sensitively adapted, simultaneously reducing their carbon footprint and enhancing their energy efficiency.’
Patricia's diverse journey spans continents, reflecting a rich tapestry of cultural experiences. She was born in Costa Rica and raised in Colombia, where her architectural journey began. Later, she immersed herself in England, making it her home in 2000 when she pursued an MA in building conservation at the University of York.
Patricia, having qualified as an architect in the UK in 2007, brings a wealth of experience gained from prestigious architectural practices in the conservation field. Over the years, her clientele has ranged from private individuals and developers to local authorities, charities, Parochial Church Councils, and even the Crown Estate, each with unique needs with small budgets to multi-million-pound projects.
With over two decades of architectural expertise in the heritage sector, Patricia established The Architect Studio in Cambridgeshire. Her focus lies in bespoke conservation projects, with a particular emphasis on revitalising historic buildings at risk.
Sustainability is ingrained in Patricia's core values, particularly evident in her efforts to preserve and renovate historical structures. One of her defining skills is her ability to attentively listen to clients, collaborating closely to translate their needs into robust designs.
As a RIBA chartered architect and AABC accredited in building conservation, Patricia holds key roles, including inspecting architect for several dioceses. She actively contributes her time to 'Inspiring the Future' and the Cambridge Food Bank in her spare moments, embodying a commitment to the community and the future of architecture.
