Marc Cairns is Managing Director of New Practice. He is a founding Director along with Becca.

Marc oversees the day to day management of the practice and team. He keeps projects moving and ensures they are delivered on time, on target, and exceeding client expectations.

With a focus on the future of the practice Marc leads on new clients, new projects and new challenges. He also leads on the public facing aspect of the practice, reinforcing our design authority by regularly presenting to peers and wider audiences.

Architecturally trained, Marc also maintains a creative overview of projects - acting as a critical voice within the practice, ensuring ambition and robust delivery.

“Developing the creative capacity of places is of immense importance to me.

Supporting and nurturing the creative industries - through a wide range of approaches - has defined my working life. I founded a not-for-profit contemporary art gallery promoting emerging visual arts and design from across the UK, contribute to the European Creative Hubs Network, volunteer my time for a number of mentorship programmes and have even found myself spending time on screen as an arts and culture journalist.”
