Risner Design Limited was formed in 2011 by two brothers, Mark and Daniel Risner. We fuse the disciplines of architecture, design and construction into a single practice so that we often design and make a project. This allows us to produce an end product which has a rigorous design approach married with an undiluted craft based quality. Our portfolio is varied with residential architecture, public realm/ landscape design, and interiors and bespoke joinery.

  • Mark Risner

  • BA, PG DIP, MSc, MA, CMLI | Partner

Mark began his interests in the built environment in 2006 studying Urban Design and Spatial Planning at Oxford Brookes University. Having worked in practice as an Urban Designer he sought to widen his design skills beyond urban design and so returned to university to train as a landscape architect at the University of Greenwich, completing his studies in 2010. Before establishing Risner Design Mark worked for several large and small architecture, landscape and multi disciplinary practices located in London and abroad and in various sectors including: residential design, masterplanning, housing estate regeneration, landscape and public realm design (Llewelyn Davies Yeang, Tribal’s Urban Studio, Garden Transformations, Kauh Architectura, Groundwork London). Since establishing Risner Design Mark has continued to follow his interests through all facets of design in both landscape and architecture but also bespoke carpentry, interiors and construction. Mark is a chartered landscape architect and a chartered member of the Landscape Institute (CMLI).

  • Dan Risner

  • BArch | Partner

Having won the Irish National Design Competition for Tyrone Crystal, Dan gained entry into the Glasgow School of Art to study architecture, completing his studies in 2007. Dan worked for a range of different architecture practices based in London, working mainly on residential and commercial projects. Seeking a more ‘hands-on’ approach and developing a greater interest in detail design and construction Dan has since worked with a number of joinery companies and contractors, as well some interesting design and build projects and has followed this interest with his work at Risner Design. To supplement this skill set Dan has since completed his FAS course in joinery and carpentry, and in 2012 completed a four month furniture making course at the Metropolitan University, London.
