  Chris Rayner has been involved in the design and construction of buildings for over twenty five years.
He studied architecture in the U.K. and North America, earning his Master of Architecture degree at the University of California, Berkley. He studied there with Christopher Alexander, author of "A Pattern Language", "The Timeless Way of Building" and "The Nature of Order", and worked for the Centre for Environmental Structure. Another early interest from this period in California was in design issues which would later be called Ecological or Sustainable Design.

  Chris returned to the U.K. and became a registered and then Chartered Architect. After working with several practices in the South East, on a variety of projects, he formed his own practice in 1992 with the aim of providing a personal service of the highest quality.
His interest in architectural history has developed into a career specialisation in historic buildings and settings. In particular, historic houses in towns, villages and the countryside, Churches from the Norman period onwards and the repair and conversion of redundant agricultural buildings.
Residential design, from new build to extensions, is an often overlooked aspect of architecture. Chris's approach is that this most human side of design is perhaps one of the most important, designing spaces that nurture and complement family life.
His work on community projects, such as village halls and schools, develops this concern for people and their wider environment.
