Formed in 1996, work generated off commercial projects, however moved mainly into residential, hospitality and leisure sectors, generated from my interest in sports applications in the above sectors.
With 42 years experience, 31 years post RIBA qualification initial training and working as an Architectural Technician, which included carpentry (carpenter father) and site work, gaining hands on building experience. This resulted in studying Architecture in London from 1985 to 1991, before qualifying as an architect in 1994, educated with the Architectural Association during the degree, RIBA Part I stage. With the passion for design researching world wide, strong technical knowledge, all under continual development and evolving.
Initial experience started with small extensions, refurbishment, new house builds and industrial building around the UK. Post qualification, work lead to countryside and London residential refurbishments, from £2 million to over £300 million properties, and experiences in the Hospitality and leisure sectors in the UK and overseas. All projects either managed office based, site based.
Visuals showcases the artistic edge, an ability born with, and developed over years, privately and utilised within architecture, reinforced an architect with 3D abilities. Drawing people to producing measured perspectives e.g developed from maps, and site photographs, to computer aided images and models, through various commissions. Building models of structures for exhibitions, continuing carpentry skills, learnt from a carpenter father, now designing and building furniture.

Environment + Sustainability
Commitment from all
Our aim is always to build creative and sustainable buildings, including integrating the existing, through cumulative and innovation, a perpetual task. It’s now more than ever, the importance to utilise the already technological advances and continued research, to building and finding new ways to building, for a better future.
“The building grows out of the landscape, as naturally as any plant. Its relationship to the site is so unique that it would be out of place elsewhere”. Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect
Building has an enormous impact on the environment, the construction industry being a large contributor to the impact of Co2 emissions on the atmosphere. As were all starting see the effects of climate change and its consequences, resulting from human’s development on the planet. The damage humans have done and are still unaware of what is being done, presents and will continue to widely inflict climate effects.
It’s now we need to work to rectify and challenge emerging issues, the target being to vanquish the damage, and learn from the mistakes, but such progress is and will be slow. We are now working with complete committal where possible, from inception to create sustainable buildings, appreciating cost the dominate factor, the environment must now be our first concern.
As we evolve, working to infuse minimal impact on the environment, we will want operate leading by example, practicing in a self-sufficient structure, so to reflects our principles.
However, much we back our celebrated environmental figures, who state the planet is now at tipping point, or organisations working to precure action on environmental issues, the real change can only happen if we all participate and is continuous, only then goal(s) will be achieved. As an active adventure racer/triathlete since 1989, participation has resulted in the observation over time to the damage humans have impacted on our oceans, rivers and land, contamination was legislated, not accidental, and allowed with great ease, without consideration to its effects. Protest was and is futile, unless as stated above, we all change, so action was focused over the years by studying and experiencing the ecological life communities in Wales, Scotland & worldwide, and research at the Alternative Technologies bodies.
In the last few years a virus life threatening worldwide, e.g. human movement has been restricted, and the way we live has changed for many. It's clear the climate has not had a break, and post pandemic, and i have stated, humans are social animals, and mix now even more, plus travel, do humans learn from their mistakes? Not initially recognised, we will in time, see its evidence from adaption in restriction, highlighted on the BBC news, note electric cars, great idea, but the carbon output in the production of the battery alone, let alone the manufacture of the car is extremely high, plus, the grid can't cope with the power needed for buildings and life. Take note, California USA is already restricting power to electric cars, do humans learn. In greater facilitation of locally sourced materials, a regulative requirement to “Code for Sustainable Homes”, having built two code 5 houses, we might make a change.
From point of origin, the cultivation, manufacture and transport in the use of wood, seen as the most suitable environmental material. Mass produce of this material and other natural materials, has environmental implications, not being addressed, respecting whatever humans do, has an impact.
Structing this statement, experience and research clearly projects we all are committed to being environmental, but at what cost? Honesty with ourselves, what damage are we doing to get materials to the ways we wish them to perform, as money dominates our way of life, whatever we think. If where going to make commitments, the method must also change for this better future.
Perhaps now humans will learn to greater appreciate to implementing ways of low impact living on the environment, from the manufacture and use of materials to wastage. As we are working to achieve, and will encourage our clients to adopt such principles.
