On all projects I champion passive design, energy efficiency and architectural sensitivity. I gain immense personal satisfaction from collaborating with a team to produce beautiful and functional buildings.

Our Practice fosters the intellectual freedom to think outside the box; an ethos that I’ve both benefitted from and now encourage. While I established my mechanical, electrical and environmental engineering skills working across the cultural, workspace and residential sectors, I also worked on projects which challenged me to push the boundaries of environmental design.

For example, the seafront location of The Landmark, Ilfracombe, allowed me to use natural ground water as a low energy cooling source for the first time – a system that’s been applied again and again.

Since then, I’ve led teams that have successfully delivered low energy and integrated designs for laboratories, theatres, galleries, classrooms, homes and hotels.
