A little about Jonathan Hines (from the Architype website www.architype.co.uk) . . . . .

Jonathan became a director of Architype in 1989, and later established the West office in 1996. Jonathan’s life-long focus has been on achieving sustainability through design. He has led the team for many of Architype’s pioneering buildings including the Genesis Project, Architype’s Hereford office, and St Luke’s Primary School. Jonathan’s wife is an ex-headteacher now local authority education advisor. His son is studying music in the US and his daughter, languages at Cambridge. He regularly lectures at universities, and is a member of the Design Review Panel of the Design Commission for Wales. Jonathan relaxes by listening to Beethoven, singing with the Hereford Choral Society, taming his wild organic garden, looking after chickens, and cooking vegetarian food – his risotto is renowned!
