Asher studied architecture and town Planning at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology and has been working for architectural practices in the UK since 2002. He joined Eric Parry Architects in April 2014 and was made Associate in 2020.
Recently Asher has worked on large-scale new-build commercial projects, including 1 Liverpool Street in the City of London and Plot 2 of The Bishopsgate Goodsyard development. Prior to this he worked on the refurbishment and extension of a Grade I Listed Regency Townhouse off the Mall in central London, converted to house the London HQ of an international asset management company and completed in April 2018. As Project Architect he also oversaw The Leathersellers’ Hall scheme in the City of London, a complex interior fit-out of the new headquarters for one of London’s oldest and most established livery companies, completed in April 2016.
Before joining the practice Asher worked for De Matos Ryan Architects for six years. As an Associate in the practice he completed a number of projects, many of them in conservation areas and involving listed buildings. These included high-end private residential houses, mixed-use developments, hotels and restaurants. Among the more unusual projects were the conversions of a disused chicken shed and a Grade II-listed Victorian water tower into residential dwellings.
Asher also worked at Ellis Williams Architects and was part of a team working on new-build education projects under the Building Schools for the Future government initiative. These included Sir John Thursby College in Lancashire and the Digital Communications Academy in Manchester.
