QFT have won a prize at the Georgian Group's Annual Awards Ceremony

16th December 2015

"Our inaugural Diaphoros Prize (from the Greek meaning ‘different’ and ‘excellent’) goes to this remarkable new country house in Tipperary designed by Quinlan and Francis Terry. It references the Villa Rotunda but with an elliptical rather than circular central dome. In the spirit of Irish Classicism, the principal rooms have Rococo-style ceilings which echo the work of the Francini brothers, who worked extensively in Ireland during the eighteenth century. The sheer attention to detail, architectural power and dramatic set-pieces, such as the stair hall with its coved plasterwork ceiling impressed the judges and they were delighted to make it the first winner of the Diaphoros Prize." - Georgian Group

Commendation at the Georgian Group’s Annual Awards Ceremony

16th December 2015

St Catherine’s House, Jersey, was commended in the category of New Build in the Classical Tradition. The east elevation of St Catherine’s faces out towards the sea and France can be seen on a clear day. The main entrance to this U-shaped house is to the west with the wings projecting on either side. The library which fills the south wing is a double cube, with a coved ceiling and bookshelves, these features are influenced by the similar disposition of the library designed by William Kent at Holkham Hall, Norfolk.

The Practice of Classical Architecture - Book Launch

1st May 2015

Great book launch last night at Somerset House, wonderful mix of people including craftsmen, builders, engineers, clients, family and old friends. I felt the occasion beautifully illustrated the truly collaborative nature of architecture. Although my father and I are the only people acknowledged in the title, dozens of other names have been critical in making our scribbles reality. It was great to see so many of you last night.
