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.
