Ian Burleigh

Managing Director

Ian Burleigh

Managing Director

Along with Chris Fegan and Alistair Horner Ian is one of the three Directors who founded our studio and he continues to be a resolute driving force behind ICA’s success. Relatively early in his career as an Architect Ian concluded that an architectural and design studio could evolve to become far more focused on meeting Client’s aspirations, efficient and meticulous with regards to the work being produced and something ‘more’ than most practices that existed at that time. Ian fed this formulation of ideas and principles into the base structure of Ica and as the studio has grown and evolved these notions have developed in tandem, woven into our ID. Over the course of his career Ian himself has gained a strong reputation as a man who ‘gets things done’. Ian retains a Client focused and commercially aware approach to the business of design, with meticulous care for accuracy and efficiency in detail, evidenced by his skilful ability to conduct successful negotiations with Planning bodies across the country.
