I'm an architect motivated by working closely with homeowners to create spaces that not only look great, but feel great too - whether that be:

  • a new building

  • an extension

  • full refurbishment and remodelling

  • a loft or garage conversion

  • a new kitchen or bathroom

...or any other architectural design project. 

I believe architecture can only be considered excellent if it truly meets the needs of the people that use it. Designing a building or space, no matter how big or small, is a journey that should be collaborative, personal and rewarding.

My Story

As a qualified architect, I have a wealth of experience designing buildings of various scales and have enjoyed every single one - including new builds, extensions, opening up rooms, and much more. Designing and creating thoughtful well considered spaces is both challenging and exciting in equal measure.

Based in London for 15 years I developed my design skills at several architectural practices, most recently working my way up to Partner at the award winning international practice, Hawkins\Brown. Having moved to Nottingham with my young family I decided to set up my own architects practice to concentrate on the aspects of architectural design I enjoy most; using my unique experience to create high quality spaces that really work for the people who use them.

Having extended and refurbished my own home I understand the excitement as well as the challenges undertaking a project can bring. I will work with you to create something that’s right for you, I’d be there to listen, guide, support and refine ideas, sharing my knowledge and experience along the way.
