A Bury St Edmunds-based architectural practice is in shock following the sudden death of one of its two founders.

Mark Savin, 39, of Infinity Architects, died suddenly last Sunday at his home in Hospital Road where he lived with his wife, Sarah.

His business partner, Aoife O’Gorman, said she had ‘not only lost a business partner but also her best friend, a man of enormous integrity and great talent as an architect’.

Mark, who was responsible for a number of award-winning buildings, was RIBA Suffolk chair and President Elect for RIBA Eastern region, as well as a member of the annual St Nicholas Hospice Care Classic Car Event Committee and an advocate for encouraging young people into architecture.

His hobbies included the TVR Car Club and Bury Astronomy Club and he was renowned for his Lego building into his adult years.

“His positive and always-optimistic personality was infectious and attributed to his success both professionally and personally,” said Ms O’Gorman, who has vowed to maintain the high quality design ethos of their practice on Angel Corner and to continue strengthening and restructuring the business.
