Romey grew up on the Arcadian plains of Suffolk where, perversely, he cultivated a healthy love of cities, buildings and urbanism. Having successfully fled the dull horror of Ipswich, Romey embarked on a study of architecture amidst the dreaming spires of Oxford. 40 years earlier you could have found Romey’s father doing the exact same thing in the exact same place.
The next odyssey was to London and gainful if chaotic employment alongside Mike Tuck at Clive Sall Architecture. Quickly, 5 years and an MA at London Met under AOC and Tony Fretton clattered past and it was once more time for change.
Romey has been working with Mike Tuck at his eponymous practice in Leyton since 2015 where they share an enjoyment of architecture, Adnams and sausage rolls.
Romey is also a Visting Lecturer in Architecture at Oxford Brookes.
