Ray Hole, Managing Director

ray hole architects is a London-based specialist architectural practice established in 2004 by Founder and Managing Director Ray Hole.

Main products and services
Built environment landscape and infrastructure (architecture).

Additional products
Strategic master planning and consultancy.

We believe that creating ‘architecture’ (built environment, landscape and infrastructure) is only one criterion of a broader (collaborative) process providing the means by which greater value can be realised for our clients, stakeholders, end-users, society in general and the environment.
We do this through realising achievable yet technically innovative and sustainable solutions – delivering commercially sound, operationally efficient and revenue-generating facilities.
This knowledge, experience, attitude and understanding allow us to play an influential role in re-imagining and redefining the visitor attraction sector and enable mainstream developers to differentiate themselves from their competitors.
