Jane Jones-Warner has had her own architectural practice for over 25 years. Her work ranges in scale from designing individual new pieces of furniture to large repair and conservation projects, one-off conversions and new build applications, all generally in sensitive and/or historic settings. Her greatest enjoyment comes from working with ecclesiastical buildings. As an architect accredited in building conservation, she understands the philosophy of conservation and enjoys the careful and delicate approach required for historic building repair. Jane has developed a style of architecture which incorporates contemporary design using traditional materials to enhance the significance of these wonderful historic structures.
Jane has both taught in the design studio and lectured on the technical aspects of architecture. She has presented practice case studies to various groups of professionals, together with landowners and stakeholders.
Jane has worked for clients applying for and implementing Historic England and Natural England grant aided schemes. In addition she has worked in a specialist consultancy role as an Historic Buildings Architect to English Heritage, providing technical administration and professional management for the Repair Grants for Historic Buildings, Monuments and Designed Landscapes Founder(HBMDL) scheme and Places of Worship (RPOW), covering the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
Jane was an assessor for the Royal Institute of British Architects on their Conservation Register and chaired their Steering Committee from 2018 to 2020, leading the RIBA in conservation accreditation. In 2016 she was a judge on the RIBA Regional Awards as their conservation expert and was a judge again in 2019.
Jane is Chair to the Fabric Advisory Committee for Portsmouth Cathedral and was a member of Chichester Diocesan Advisory Committee for the Fabric of Churches for over 12 years.
