Robert Thorley



I am an Associate and Project Architect at Willmore Iles Architects. I am experienced in commercial architecture and have worked within several sectors including Student Residential, Residential and Retail. I sit on the Employee Council and am the current Employee Trustee Director, representing the Employee Council on the Employee Ownership Trust board.


I joined Willmore Iles Architects in 2008 as a qualified Architectural Technologist from UWE Bristol. I continued to study through the RIBA Office Based Examination course and completed Parts 1 & 2 at Oxford Brookes University before completing my Part 3 at UWE Bristol and qualifying as an Architect in 2013.

Professional Interests:

I have a particular interest in concept design and early stage dialogue with clients to establish their project goals and aspirations. 3D modelling has become a key area of expertise and I have helped develop the Visualisations team at Willmore Iles, using new skills and presentation techniques to support practice bids, planning applications and client proposals.

And in the rest of life …

I play 5-a-side football and a keen runner, participating in various organised events throughout the year. I like to travel with friends and family and I am always on the look out for the latest restaurant or craft beer establishment in Bristol.
