Axis Design is owned and managed by two Directors: Mike Menzies and Rob Annable. They are active in all aspects of the company’s service and remain ‘hands-on’ – designing, drawing and running consultations events. They are highly experienced in the design and management of a wide range of urban design, architecture and environmental design projects.

The directors are assisted by a technical team of Architectural Assistants, who are are fully trained in the use of BIM and our web-based project management system. The Directors and technical staff are supported by an admin team who help to ensure the smooth running of the day-to-day business.

Axis Design Collective was originally formed in 1982 by 4 founding partners, including current company Director Mike Menzies. The practice was incorporated in 2008 to become Axis Design Architects Ltd. We operate from one of our own projects, a refurbished, Grade II listed foundry building in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
