Basic Biographical Details

Name: Stephen Piper
Designation: Architect
Born: 1860
Bio Notes: Stephen Piper was born in 1860. He was articled to the Newcastle-upon-Tyne practice of Austin Johnson & Hicks 1876-80, thereafter moving to London to obtain experience with Charles Barry junior, 1880-83, and Horace Jones 1883-85. He returned to Newcastle in 1885 as senior assistant to Frank West Rich with whom he remained until he commenced independent practice in Newcastle in 1900. His practice appears to have been severely affected by the Finance Act of 1909 as he closed it to accept an appointment as assistant to Clark and Moscrop in Darlington some time before 1911 and was still there in 1914. He was admitted LRIBA on 20 March 1911, his proposers being Henry Clement Charlewood and the Northern Architectural Association.
