our history

The practice was formed when Gino Lombardo left a Local Government Architects Department to set up as a sole practitioner in 1986.  After a short period he was joined by Barry Singleton in 1988 and together they eventually formed a partnership which then became Gino Lombardo Associates Ltd in 2002. The current practice is owned and run by Barry Singleton and James Lombardo


Having been based in Derby throughout its life, the practice is now situated in a grade 2 listed Georgian Town House in Friar Gate.


We have hardworking reliable and qualified staff with an overall balance of experience and youth that enables us to be very flexible in delivering the right solution for the right Client. 


Throughout the life of the practice people find us easy to work with and during our time in Derby we have acquired a data base for all types of consultants and specialists that are often required in conjunction with Architectural work. 


Although we have a comprehensive local knowledge of Derby and surrounding area we are always prepared to consider work throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
