Our Story

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 help listed building owners and custodians realise the potential of their historic assets to achieve constant use and revenue. 

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.'

Meet the Architect
Patricia Forero-Senior


‘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, marking a rich tapestry of cultural experiences. She first qualified as an architect in 1995 in Colombia, where she also worked for several years. Later, she immersed herself in England, making it her home in 2000 and pursuing an MA in building conservation at the University of York.

Having achieved qualification as a UK architect in 2007, Patricia brings a wealth of experience from prestigious architectural practices in the conservation field. Her clientele ranges from private individuals and developers to local authorities, charities, Parochial Church Councils, and the Crown Estate, encompassing projects with diverse needs and budgets.

With over two decades of architectural expertise in the heritage sector, Patricia established The Architect Studio in Cambridgeshire. Specializing in bespoke conservation projects, her focus is on revitalizing 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. Beyond her professional pursuits, she actively contributes her time to 'Inspiring the Future' and the Cambridge Food Bank, embodying a commitment to community and the future of architecture.

In addition to her academic achievements, Patricia holds an MSt in building conservation from the University of Cambridge. Recently, she has joined Kingston University as a visiting lecturer in their MSc in building conservation course, further extending her influence in shaping the future of architectural conservation.
