LEEP is led by Marcus Lee and prides itself on a collaborative approach. The practice works with a number of talented young architects and across a range of disciplines, from the civic to the ecological and is currently embracing a series of projects from an eco resort and rewilding programme in Portugal’s Alentejo region to a rural house using locally sourced building materials on the Isle of Mull, Scotland.
Marcus is highly regarded within the industry for his master-planning, aviation, innovative houses and a diverse range of award-winning projects. The practice has built up a portfolio of private homes on challenging sites bringing extraordinary schemes to light.
Framehouse, built on a rear garden back lane plot in Hackney, East London was featured on Grand Designs and won a RIBA award for architectural excellence.
While at the Richard Rogers Partnership, Marcus commanded key leadership roles across many of the practice’s flagship designs including Lloyd’s of London, Heathrow Terminal 5, Zurich International Airport, Greenwich Peninsula Masterplan and the Dome. He was lead competition architect for the Stirling Prize award winning-design for Madrid Barajas Airport.
After 21 years, Marcus left to establish his own practice, FLACQ, which later merged with Arup Associates and from 2019 to 2021 he was UK Director of Nordic Office of Architecture before reforming LEEP in 2021.
Marcus serves on a number of design panels and acts as a built environment expert for Design Council CABE. He has been a RIBA National and International awards judge and a Design South East and Hackney and Islington panel member. Marcus has taught extensively and has been a visiting tutor at schools of architecture including Yale, Royal College of Art, Westminster and the Mackintosh School.
