15 years as an architect, the last 10 of which has been as principal of my own practice.
I have worked on a wide range of projects, from small scale residential to multi-million pound commercial and public schemes, from concept design, through brief development, strategic planning, site layout, development of constructional, structural and servicing approaches, site, detail design, tender documentation, contract and project management.
Currently working on medium scale community projects, my other focus is on developing and promoting an integrated approach to building procurement, under the title Design Led Construction™
Specialties:Particular skills include sustainability design, construction management (we have built 11 of our own projects through my construction company), strategic consultancy and brief development for clients, furniture and joinery design, pattern languages.
My special responsibility as an architect is to be the person who develops, understands, communicates and strengthens the living character that alone can make a building truly beautiful.
Design and Build as it really should be!
We take a design-led approach to design and build, combining the cost control and speed of typical 'D&B' with high quality architecture, offering a one-stop-shop service to clients in and around London.
We have founded a small,alternative school in SW London, following a free and child-centred approach to learning.
Worked on Southwark Station, Jubilee Line Extension
Led competition winning team (under Richard MacCormac) for the Wellcome Wing at the London Science Museum, and then as assistant architect on the project through all stages to completion
Designed and made a variety of furniture in timber, using hand and machine tools, general joinery and cabinet-making skills; steam-bending, french polishing.
