Frances Hunt RIBA (rtd) – was a Chartered Architect, Member of the Royal Institute of British Architects and a Partner in Clifton Design Associates – a Brighton based architects’ office. She designed and built hotels, schools, nursing homes, surgeries & cooperative housing and she was architect for the long process of restoring Eugenius Birch’s fantastical Victorian Aquarium at the seafront Terraces.

With a strong interest in environment, sustainability and climate, Fran was the Founding Partner with Alex in Bright Green Homes. Now officially retired as an architect she remains a Partner in Bright Green Homes, giving support whenever needed.
(Note from Fran: now mostly to be found trying to learn the art of growing vegetables – much harder than architecture!).
