OUR TEAM

We don’t think it’s enough that your home or business gets the inspiring space it deserves.
You should also enjoy the process. Drawing on a wide range of experience
and expertise, our team will ensure you do exactly that.

JOHN MONK BSc (Arch) Dip Arch. RIBA Architect and Director

One of our Founding Directors, John leads projects and handles client relationships as well as running the firm. An RIBA-qualified Architect, he shapes every aspect of projects: administering contracts, devising concepts and completing detail design.

 

A keen amateur guitarist – with the emphasis on amateur – he spends much of his spare time catching up with new music and seeing live bands.

IAN MANSFIELD BA (Hons) Dip Arch. RIBA Architect and Director

Our other Founding Director, Ian is also an RIBA-qualified Architect. As well as managing the firm with John and Gaynor, he heads up projects, handles client relationships and takes a lead on everything, from conceiving and executing designs to drafting contracts.

 

An enthusiastic golfer and skier, he’s on a mission to stay fit for what he’s promised will be a last season of football.

GAYNOR TAYLOR BA (Hons) Interior Architecture Senior Designer and Director

An Associate Member of the Chartered Society of Designers with a degree in Interior Architecture, Gaynor combines creative design expertise with exceptional organisational skills. As a Director of the firm, she runs projects, handles client responsibilities and leads on concept and detailed design.

 

Not one for a quiet life, she divides her free time between pilates, yoga and running and can’t resist a good novel (provided it’s printed).

LEE CHATER BSc (Hons) Arch. Design and Tech. Senior Architectural Technician and Associate

Drawing on project management and architectural design expertise, Lee helps drive projects from inception through to completion. In the 12 years he’s been here, he’s developed an in-depth knowledge of 2D and 3D drawing packages. All of which he supports with a degree in Architectural Design Technology.

 

He loves physical challenges, which means his weekends are far from relaxing. As well as sessions at the gym and running, he’s tackled Tough Mudders, Nuclear Races, and the 3 Peaks Challenge.

JESSICA JOHANSSON-BERGH National Diploma in Interior Design Senior Designer

Jessica makes sure that we strike the fine balance between inspiration and practicality in all our designs. She draws on a professional qualification in interior design, plus commercial design experience that spans concept, 3D visualisation, detailing and FF&E.

 

Pilates, yoga and travel are passions away from the office, with the coast and lakes being a particular draw. But perhaps her biggest pleasure is discovering the world through her kids’ eyes.

Weekends are spent building ever larger hot wheels tracks with her son, pampering her cats, making lists and contemplating exercise.

PAUL WREN Senior Architectural Technician

Paul makes sure all our buildings and interiors are built on the firmest technical foundations. With some 21 years’ experience in the firm, he completes site surveys, develops production information and creates detailed drawings.

 

Outside the office, he’s happiest gardening, dog-walking and exploring country lanes on his bike.

Joining the Mansfield Monk team in 2019 Paul brings a wealth of technical expertise with nearly twenty years of experience. With a friendly manner and straight forward approach Paul provides an essential bridge between clients, contractors  and consultants enabling projects to progress on track and with clarity.
