Architect Visit: Guard Tillman Pollock in London

June 3, 2010

Before founding London-based firm Guard Tillman Pollock in 2002, Mark Guard worked in the UK, Ireland, and North America for firms such as Richard Rogers Partnership, Rick Mather Architects, and Eva Jiricna Architect. Guard’s practice, which has as its goal “the development of elegant, functional, and modernist design,” has won many awards, including the RIBA Award for Houses and Housing for a rooftop apartment in Paris, which was subsequently short listed for the Stirling Prize for Architecture.

Above: For the design of a new house in Galway, Guard Tillman Pollack took their cues from traditional rural Irish buildings. “The simple rectangular form of the house stands abrupt and proud in the tradition of the Irish farm house. The white-painted interior is simply detailed; sliding walls allow the house to be largely open plan or divided off into more specific rooms as required.”
