Team & Projects
Our core team includes specialist care designer and architect William McMorran. He brought his multi award winning design skills to bear on the care industry after a series of family experiences involving care institutions. He is passionate about generating a massive change in the quality of care environments. William is the recipient of a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Travelling Fellowship, and used it to travel the world, visiting the most admired and forward thinking care providers and environments globally.
Roland McMorran, also a director at Architectonicus, has worked as a professional carer and is sensitive to the direct experience of delivering care as well as living in current caring environments.
Janet McMorran, an ex paralympic athlete who uses a wheelchair and lives with a low back break further advises on living with disabilities. She enhances our understanding of the experience of disability and the key issues, vital to living well, that make an environment not just accessible but one that champions ability.
