RM Architects was founded in 2012 by Richard Morton and Yarema Ronish, together with a small team of specialist designers. During 25 years with Sidell Gibson, including 12 years as a partner, Richard completed a wide range of residential, commercial and historic building projects.  These have included City offices, hotels, luxury residential and work on a number of important listed buildings.

Richard is a specialist in retirement housing, including sheltered housing, assisted living and care homes.  He has won over 60 design awards for 40 completed developments nationwide, and now advises Beechcroft, Anchor, Hanover and other leading providers. Yarema's extensive experience has given him a particularly strong technical grounding in residential, commercial and listed building projects in London.

The schemes shown on this website illustrate the design skills, the commitment to quality, the problem solving attitude and the appreciation of context that serve you and our other clients so well. Some of the projects featured were designed by Richard and teams under his leadership, during his time at Sidell Gibson.
