Quentin set up Quentin Alder Architects in 1984. In 2022, NOMA Architects and Quentin Alder Architects joined forces. This has allowed both practices to benefit from the skills and knowledge of all members of the Team. You can learn more about the entire Quentin Alder and NOMA Architects Team via https://www.noma-uk.com/home/about.

Quentin Alder Architects has a particular emphasis on listed buildings or buildings in conservation areas or other sensitive and historic locations. The Team is committed to environmentally sensitive design and methods of construction. In 1995 Quentin received a postgraduate Diploma in Architectural Conservation, and is very experienced in the repair, conservation, conversion and extension of existing buildings including quinquennial inspections, repair, alteration, and extensions to ecclesiastical buildings and the design of individual private houses. The Team also includes Royal Institute of British Architects Conservation Registrants.

As with all our Architects, Quentin’s professional qualifications include membership of the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Architects Registration Board. He is also a member of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation, Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, the Victorian Society, the Bristol Civic Society and a very early member of the Association for Environment Conscious Building. He is proud to have served as chair of the Arnos Vale Cemetery Trust, chair of the Bristol City Council Conservation Advisory Panel and chair of the Bristol Cathedral Fabric Advisory Committee.
