What I do.
Tending towards bespoke design, my work has ranged from small to large(er) scale -
• Residential projects (contracts £10,000 to £1,100,000)
• Office fit-outs and new-build studios (contracts £100,000 to £1,000,000),
• One-off restaurants, small business suites, community projects
• Landscaping and furniture design.
My projects include work within National Parks, Conservation Areas, and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB); projects within Scheduled Ancient Monuments and
works to Listed Buildings; I've advised voluntary management committees on donation and Lottery-funded projects.
I am modern, functionalist and practical.
I try to ask the right questions, to help a client get the best solutions.
I ask clients to assess the difference between cost and value. Cost can be estimated or quoted. Value is your own balance of finance, enjoyment and usefulness.
I prefer to interact with builders rather than instruct them, believing in a hands-on approach to construction.
A low consumer, I like to conserve resources, recycle materials and lower energy use; staying smart and creative while doing this is the clever bit I strive for.
Friendly, open and curious, to uncover what's needed to fulfil the brief; I like to make sure that things work.
