John Holt, a fountain of knowledge…

After qualifying as a Chardtered Architect, John worked for a number of high-profile architectural practices in the North West before establishing my his own practice, William Holt Architects Ltd. Subsequently he merged with his father’s practice to create John Holt Architects Ltd.

John particularly enjoys designing one-off contemporary houses using scale models to develop ideas and convey scheme designs.

Out of work he enjoys ‘completing’ in Triathlons, Cycling, raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Care and spends many hours on the M62 following Wigan RLFC.
