Mike Burnell

Project Architect

Mike has worked for Hopkins Architects since early 2012. He studied at the Universities of Nottingham and Edinburgh, where his projects received critical acclaim. His work was exhibited at the 11th International Architecture Biennale in Venice.


With particular expertise in the education sector, Mike has taken on important roles for a number of key projects for Hopkins. These include the Yang Science Centre for Abingdon School, which includes 21 laboratories arranged on 3 floors in a building that forms a welcoming new entrance for the school's northern boundary. He also worked on the Engineering and Science Library at the University of Nottingham, modernising and expanding the existing George Green Library to 21st-century standards and infusing the building with natural light.


Mike was the Project Architect on a new Academic Building for Brighton College, a flint and brick faced building located within George Gilbert Scott's historic campus, and the second Phase of the Institute in the Park at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool. More recently, he was the Project Architect on a world-class research and teaching facility for the University of Exeter, and is currently working on the redevelopment of Twickenham Riverside.
