The Career to Date of Richard Fletcher
Richard Fletcher began his career working for the Department of the Environment. Whilst there, he was closely involved with the design of permanent exhibitions within many of our National Museums & Art Galleries.
He was offered a senior design post with Qualart, an architectural metalwork company, where he remained for another eleven years. A long time, but the diversity of projects was a constant, fascinating challenge. From the Tower of London to the Speaker’s Office — from bank shop fronts to Middle Eastern palaces — Cathedrals to theatres…
He became one of the leading showcase designers in the country and the authority on many types of showcase systems. He developed ‘Ikon’ the Crown Suppliers’ replacement for 101 & 102. He also modified existing showcase systems to provide much higher levels of security. Examples of which were the Harrison Chronometers cases and bullet proof cases for the Faberge exhibition at the V&A.Then one day in October 1989 he was made an offer he couldn’t refuse. Consultant Designer to Thomson Holidays…
Continuing to The Present Day
To date he has worked on scores of resort hotels in many countries around the Mediterranean and Canary Isles. He has been responsible for production kitchens, restaurants, receptions, indoor & outdoor entertainment stages, children’s playgrounds, crèches and new build hotels.
From his office in Durham, Richard Fletcher is now trading as Amamus Design with an ever widening base of experience. Recently Amamus Design provided the space planning and detail drawings for a block of seven apartments in Walker, Newcastle. More recently, Amamus Design was responsible for the planning, detail drawings, signage and interior design for the Le Raaj Indian Restaurant. Although Le Raaj had only been opened a few months it rapidly gained a reputation as one of the region’s best Indian restaurants and won a National award for excellence.
