Jillian is a Chartered Architect and founding Director of Lomas and Mitchell Architects and loves to unravel complicated spatial problems. Jillian understands that what Clients really want is trustworthy design and construction advice and guidance throughout a project.
Whilst working in Bermuda, London and Sheffield, Jillian experienced a broad range of project types, from hotels to bus stations and anything in between. She established Project Logistics Architecture in 1997, where she developed a love for private residential work.
Merging her Practice with Lomas Architecture has provided the opportunity to establish Lomas and Mitchell Architects as one of the region’s leading low-energy, design-led Practices.
Jillian specialises in low-energy, healthy and beautiful homes – whether one-offs or several-offs – and has had particular success with gaining planning approval for Paragraph 79 projects. These one-off houses in the countryside need to be of ‘outstanding architectural merit’ in order to gain approval.
Helping Clients explore and express their needs at the start of a project is vital for success and Jillian is particularly skilled in helping them to develop a great brief and explore options before investing in their project.
In her spare time, Jillian enjoys singing in two choirs and playing Petanque, which gets her out in the fresh air and satisfies her competitive spirit.
