Toby Harling, Associate

Toby has 15 years’ experience and worked at large commercial architectural practices in London and Bristol prior to joining Box Architects.

Toby has experience in the living, workplace and leisure sectors. He specialises in mixed-use, retail and office developments with an ability to develop a strong understanding of each client’s requirements and to tailor the approach to suit their individual needs. He brings an enthusiasm and talent for design to the practice as well as attention to detail alongside sound technical knowledge when a project goes on site.
