Architect suspended for failing to disclose business failure

The Architects Registration Board

Zap Club design mastermind banned from practising as an architect for two years

An architect who failed to tell the profession’s regulator he was disqualified from being a company director following the winding-up of his business has been suspended from practising for two years.

The Architects Registration Board said Anthony Browne, of Chelsea Consultants, had been found guilty of unprofessional conduct because he had not informed it that previous business M&B Architects was wound up at the request of HM Revenue & Customs.

Browne, 59, describes himself as a designer on Chelsea Consultants’ website, where he details his involvement with the creation of legendary Brighton music venue the Zap Club and a succession of high-end projects including the refurbishment of the Park International Hotel in Kensington.
