About Me

When choosing an architect, it’s vital to find someone who will really listen to your ideas and come up with a design to bring your dreams to fruition.

Since 1999, I’ve had the privilege of doing just this – guiding people from that initial thought – “Wouldn’t it be great if we could see the sea from here”, or “We need a larger living space and an extra bedroom” – to the reality.

I find it extremely rewarding to create, for example, the new storey that enables the owners to finally enjoy a stunning coastal view, or a new master bedroom where the sun streams in every morning.

In essence, I enjoy helping people improve their lives, because where we live can have an enormous impact on our happiness.

Working closely with a homeowner to help design and improve their home is a direct, personal and productive process – I never forget that it is their hard-earned money that makes it possible.

Why choose me?

I feel that three key elements set me apart from many other architects:

  1. I listen – I really do. Then I present a design, listen again, and make changes to make it better.
  2. I use my knowledge of design to solve clients’ problems and thrive on the various challenges encountered during the process.
  3. Having worked on a wide range of residential projects, from new-builds to the sensitive renovation of listed buildings as well as many sympathetic extensions, I have a wealth of experience to overcome the hurdles. My aim is to ensure that even the most complex project will succeed and, ultimately, be rewarding for both owner and architect alike!
