Peter started his working life in a small Bradford architects practice and learnt the full gamut of life in an architect practice. From this experience he learned to appreciate the magnificence of the industrial architecture that surrounded him.
Studying by day release and night classes he gained ONC and HNC at Leeds Polytechnic. He worked throughout his studies at various Yorkshire architect’s practices, and having spent eleven years in employment decided to study full time and earned a B.A. at the Hull School of Architecture. He paid his way designing houses, extensions and commercial office and warehouse facilities.
He became a partner in Hogg + Willoughby Architect’s practice in the early 1980’s and undertook projects including Leisure, domestic and commercial throughout the UK. Peter’s specialism in leisure facilities especially swimming pools and Local Authority leisure centres led to working with GLR architects, a specialist leisure practice.
