Raphael Selby

Architect · Joined 2018

As architects, we must recognize that even the smallest interventions can ignite remarkable change within our cities: to elevate people's experiences and enrich our urban fabric, one thoughtful design at a time.

Raphael joined Page\Park in 2018, having graduated with a Masters in Architecture from Newcastle University. His interests lie in conservation architecture and its role in preserving our collective heritage.

During his studies, he received a vacation scholarship to research Brutalism in the context of Brazil, which contributed to a paper at the 5th docomomo São Paulo Conference, where he was invited to present his work. His Masters thesis explored heritage and identity, focusing on Brasilia as a case study and viewing preservation as an evolving art that bridges the past, present, and future.

At Page\Park, working on live conservation projects has allowed him to develop his theoretical interest through the technical challenges of on-site experience. His professional experience with listed and existing buildings have looked at honest restoration and refurbishment to the adaptive reuse of heritage buildings to cater to contemporary client and user needs.
