Lisa Raynes - Pride Road Architects

Lisa Raynes


Pride Rd North Cheshire

Having clocked up over a decade of professional experience in a larger practice environment, Lisa Raynes decided back in 2009 that it was time to strike out on her own. With the recession hitting the industry pretty hard at that time, she’d freely admit this was out of necessity more than anything else – but would probably add that it turned out to be the best possible thing that could have happened.

Having established Lisa Raynes Architecture in the years that followed, Lisa was able to carve out a meaningful architectural career that also allowed her to balance her family life. Working closely with owner occupiers and those with smaller projects, she found a stream of business that was able to ride out the downturn comfortable, while giving her the chance to help develop properties that truly contributed to people’s lives and reflected their individual personalities.

As an active council member of the Royal Institute of British Architects Lisa is not only passionate about architecture, but uses her considerable professional experience and national acclaim as a platform to make the industry a better place for women.

She also runs a number of associated architectural calendar events, founding the regionally-focused Manchester Curious in 2015.
