TOM BROOKSBANK Architect Childhood holidays in Bavaria inspired Tom Brooksbank to become an architect: ‘We spent a lot of time in rococo churches and at Neuschwanstein Castle.’ After working at practices in London and New York, Tom set up his own studio in 2012 with Alan Collins. His favourite project has been a town-house refurbishment in Chelsea that ‘was like making a silk purse from a sow’s ear’.

It is a rather astonishing output considering they were all designed in a seven-year period before Mary began to have children. Having studied fashion design in the Thirties, Mary soon turned her focus to print design and started doodling on bits of old envelopes. ‘I would sit by my bedroom window in my parents’ house in Somerset and draw all day long.’ Soon Mary was taking her designs round the Manchester cotton mills and went on to sell her patterns to companies including Liberty. ‘I sold each design for seven-and-a-half guineas, which seemed a reasonable fee.’ Her colourful and…
