Position: Architect
Qualification: BSC (Hons) DipArch RIBA

Jorge is a graduate of University of North London and the University of Cambridge. He came to Richard Griffiths Architects in 2013, having previously worked for Purcell, where he gained experience working on the refurbishment of a Grade 1 listed property in Mayfair, London and also extensions to a number of other listed buildings including churches, private dwellings and a private members club. He is also experienced in obtaining planning permission for buildings within conservation areas and liaising with public bodies and heritage organisations.

At Coworth Park Spa, Ascot, Jorge acted as job architect for a new eco-luxury spa buried within the natural contours of the landscape. Sustainable features included a glulam structure, lime hemp walling, a living roof, biomass boiler, closed loop groundwater extraction and rainwater harvesting.

At Cambridge, Jorge has worked on the refurbishment and extension buildings for the Engineering Department, Colleges and many private houses, and was part of the team for Nicholas Roy’s Quayside for Magdalene College.

At Richard Griffiths Architects, Jorge was the architect of an exciting project to complete TG Jackson’s 1880s unfinished tower. It is the main entrance gate at Brighton College and from the moment of its completion has become the symbol of the College. The tower accommodation serves as an office for the Headmaster of the College and a ceremonial meeting room. This project received a RIBA South East 2017 award.

Jorge also recently completed a major repair refurbishment programme at St Nicholas Church in Kings Lynn, a £1.3M project to one of the largest and most remarkable medieval churches in Norfolk for the Churches Conservation Trust and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Jorge is currently leading RGA’s conservation team as part of a major refurbishment project at 55-91 Knightsbridge, London. His role involves overseeing the retention and conservation of the Caroe façade of 1904 and other notable features of this Grade II Listed building.

At the Jewish Cemetery in London, founded in 1873, Jorge is working on the restoration, improved facilities and landscaping to give it a sustainable future economically, socially and environmentally including its historic environment and buildings.

At Sir Gilbert Scott’s railway St Pancras Hotel, Jorge is leading the alterations to form a mezzanine bar extension over the booking offi ce in the hall restaurant with its intricately carved joinery and panelling. This is a highly sensitive environment requiring a meticulous approach to the treatment of the joinery screen as well as Scott’s architecture.

Jorge also oversees RGA’s in-house quality management systems.
