Sam is an RIBA-accredited Conservation Architect, with over twenty years’ experience in the progressive adaptation of complex, historic, multi-layered environments. He brings a philosophical rigour grounded in an astute understanding of the way materials and humans behave, to create spaces that support contemporary life, across the private, public and creative sectors.
Sam is the founding Director of architecture practice Studio Sam Causer, based in Margate since 2010. Through collaboration with artists, academics and community leaders, we develop strong networks to understand the meaning of heritage in each context, and how to engage stakeholders in the process of change.
Alongside practice, Sam has held teaching positions at the Universities of Cambridge and Kent, among others. He sits on the Boards of Open School East, a free, alternative art school, and of the Margate Town Deal.
Sam graduated from the University of Cambridge with Distinction in 2000, qualified as an Architect in 2003, and became accredited in Conservation in 2019.
