Janine Riley

Janine Riley is a conservation architect with experience of private practice, education and local government. In the rapidly growing practice of Martin Stancliffe Architects she worked on many special buildings and sites for the National Trust, and was project architect on Culloden Tower and Beamsley Almshouses for the Landmark Trust (both award winning schemes).

As senior lecturer at Huddersfield University, and in response to the new “International Degree (RIBA pt1) and Master of Architecture (RIBA pt2)” courses, Janine broadened the scope of History and Theory modules to include an understanding of very different development contexts. During this time she worked on conservation projects with the agency caring for the Medina of Fez Morocco (UNESCO World Heritage Site) and with the New Delhi Planning School.

More recently Janine had the privilege of being the Conservation Architect for City of York Council (16yrs), advising on all aspects (except archaeology) of the historic built environment from small schemes of repair/alteration/new build to major sites of renewal such as the Terry’s Factory site and Red Lodge at New Earswick Garden Village – the latter schemes in collaboration with planning colleagues.
