1 in 4 people suffer from mental health issues

One of the biggest factor is the environment we  are in…

We spend 90% of our time indoors and 65% of this is in our own homes. Poor housing costs the NHS £1.4B per year!

The pandemic has only exaggerated the impact on people’s physical and mental health due to poor living conditions. Much of the existing housing stock out of the 29 million in the UK is not designed with health and wellbeing in mind.

Mitesh Parmar

Visionary Director • Marketing & Operation

BEng, ACIM, TAP.Dip

Mitesh, on the other hand, has always sought a purposeful life. 

This desire was intensified by his personal challenge with Ulcerative Colitis, diagnosed during his early university years. 

A pivotal moment came with redundancy, it was a turning point. He knew there was more to life than contributing to the success of large corporations. 

A series of experiences, from medical struggles to diverse commercial roles, culminated in a determination to make a meaningful difference.

…Wellspace Architects was established from these experiences. 

Leveraging  Minal’s diverse expertise and her recognition as a WELL Accredited Professional, together with Mitesh’s business savvy and entrepreneurial drive, we embarked on our impactful mission.

As a former software engineer and global product manager Mitesh brings his unique skill set to the practice that spans across SME to billion-pound turnover organisations, in the field of business, marketing, and commercial strategy, in areas such as electronics, SaaS, manufacturing and rail.

He has seen challenges and solutions from various sectors giving him a distinct and unique approach to running a business. More so the impact on the work space and the health of its employees. Especially as he himself suffers from a chronic medical health condition himself.

His role focuses on listening to clients, the market and understanding how Wellspace Architects can always be striving to be better and innovative.

Mitesh holds a degree in Electronic & Software Engineering from the University of Leicester, a qualification from the Chartered Institute of Marketing, and a Diploma in Training and Development.

He is also a board of trustee for a local charity called free@last.
