Brief Bio

I am a fully qualified Architect with over six years of professional experience. I have worked predominately with one-off houses and extensions for individual clients, working with modern and historic listed buildings. I also have experience in the education, health and social housing sectors.

I believe that new houses and extensions should be environmentally friendly and I have a keen
interest in designing buildings that are specific to their location and environment. A building should maximize and harness the benefits of natural light, the heat from the sun, the prevailing wind, and orientate towards the best views. My background in designing houses to Passivhaus principles takes into consideration the overall functioning of a building throughout the day and during different seasons.

Where possible I think it is important for Architects to engage fully in the construction process and work closely with clients and the construction team in order to deliver the best possible outcome.

Detailed Design and Building Regulations

In most cases a Building Control Inspector will need to assess a project before work starts. A 'detailed design' set of drawings can be produced which will also assist a contractor with pricing the works.
