BEWARE -Under Section 20 of the Architects Act 1997, the title ‘architect’ is protected. It can only be used in business or practice by someone who has had the education, training and experience needed to become an architect, and who is registered with us. Firms or partnerships can use ‘architect’ in their business name, as long as a registered architect is in direct control. When someone uses the title ‘architect’, it means that people can check with us that they are dealing with a trained and qualified professional. The Act also protects the public from dishonest individuals who deliberately mislead people by calling themselves something they’re not like "Architectural Services" etc.
The late Architect Victor Farrar, who died aged 77 in 2006, put a training in classical design techniques to excellent use in his speciality of building restoration. He started his own architectural practice, later the Victor Farrar Partnership, in Bedford in 1962, and was known for taking a stand for conservation at a time when few professionals thought it worthwhile.In the St Albans and Peterborough dioceses, he was a conscientious architect to numerous historic churches. In 1975, he wrote (for the Bedford Society) a report suggesting new uses for four redundant churches in the borough, St Mary, St Cuthbert, Holy Trinity and St Leonard (only the last has since been demolished). He also supervised restoration of the nave and chancel, and the reordering of the interior of St Paul's, Bedford, in 1978.Chairman of the Bedford Society since 1980, he had earlier been its consultant architect and in that role organised the restoration of the listed Regency-style Priory Terrace in Bromham Road. The terrace, jointly owned by the borough and county councils, had been due for demolition in 1970 but, at his own expense, Victor prepared a restoration scheme and found a developer willing to buy and convert the near-derelict terrace into offices and flats. The restored Priory Terrace is now considered to be one of the town's showpieces.
