From childhood, buildings and their landscapes have always intrigued and beguiled me. A rich tapestry of culture, scale, proportion, materiality and environment coming together to create space and form that can impress and relate to those that engage with it.
Architecture suits my ever optimistic desire to create places which make a positive difference within their surroundings, both to the users and the community.
Each project is unique and being given the opportunity to collaborate with clients and stakeholders to design something special is both humbling and energising.
Humans are connected to their environment in ways even they don't fully understand. Trying to capture the essence of these links in a building or interior is one of my aims throughout the design process. Focussing attention on longevity and sustainability I like to consider each design over its lifetime.
