At the depth of the last economic depression in 1991, Paul Russell left the world of corporate Architecture to start Russell Associates. The practice built on existing contacts in Central London whilst rapidly establishing new contacts in the Greenwich area. After opening offices in central Greenwich expansion necessitated a move to the current offices in 2006. After less than a year in the almost obligatory bedroom in the attic, we moved to offices in central Greenwich, and further expansion then necessitated the move into the current offices.

An early opportunity came with the complete refurbishment of the Grade 2 Listed Mitre public house and hotel in Greenwich Town Centre. Following this, Russell Associates carried out a number of projects on pubs and restaurants in Greenwich, Central London and a theatre refurbishment in Regents Park. We continue to have a substantial amount of work in this field and for instance have been involved in many of Greenwich Inc’s properties in central Greenwich and the 02 including the Bar du Musee and The Spread Eagle.

Our domestic work includes a significant number of major refurbishments of existing houses and conversions, for example, churches into homes. We have also work on a number of substantial new houses, including 4 notable examples on the exclusive Cator estate in Blackheath.
