Being Me

Manny Gaskin

I am an experienced and multi-award winning Architect and Community Artist and Poet from Wallington, South West London, Surrey to some.

My Architecture specialises in the residential markets creating homes for families and opportunities for overseas investors. Creating modern, cosy and open spaces to allow both growth for the inhabitants and investment potential.

My Artwork is sculptural and deals with community and involves recycled materials and has been devised to provide a voice for and a focal point for the local people. 

Trained at Oxford School of Architecture, University of Westminster and Kingston School of Art gaining an Honours degree, and 2 postgraduate diplomas (Including full qualification as an architect) with ARB registration.

Am a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects and also the Arts Network Sutton.
