Categories: Architecture

Architect. Born Geoffrey James Darke. He and fellow architect John Darbourne founded the firm of Darbourne and Darke, specifically to design the Lillington Gardens Estate in Pimlico. They also designed much of the landscaping for Heathrow Airport. When that partnership was dissolved in October 1987 Darke set up his own company, Geoffrey Darke Associates.

An article in the Islington Gazette names the 1976 Marquess Estate in Marquess Road, N1, as designed by Darbourne and Darke, saying it was original praised but its design led to problems of anti-social behaviour and it had to be thinned out and regenerated.
