An architect has been struck off for “repeated poor conduct and performance” after a complaint from a client who wanted a two-storey building extension at their home in Greenwich, London.

The Architects Registration Board (ARB) told Toyin Oduse, founder of SE2 Creatives, that he can no longer call himself an architect after building an extension without planning permission.
