About Research + Design

Hi, I am a Chartered Architectural Technologist with over 25 years of international experience working on projects throughout the southwest uk and London and abroad. I have been in practice for over 10 years and completed over 150 projects. I won The Abercrombie Award 2011 for Best Minor Development (Home Extension) and Best Community Project 2017 (Childrens Theatre). The foundation of my career was formed while working for well known architects and artists including Sverre Fehn, Renzo Piano and Vito Acconci in Oslo, New York, Paris and London. My practice takes on all manner of projects though also has a keen interest in biophilic design - this is a type of design that has a love of nature at its heart. Its not always applicable to all our Clients and projects but its there for Clients who are interested. Biophilic design is a sustainable type of design that can increase our connection with the natural world and can benefit our mental, physical and spiritual well being. Many of the projects I work on are close collaborations with self builders and Clients that like to get involved in the design. I am currently working on projects in Worton - Wiltshire (AONB), Kilve - Somerset (next to Quontock AONB), Gerrards Cross -South Bucks and Newton Ferrers(waterfront) - Devon, a new highly sustainable house with passivehaus detailing in Dartmoor National Park and an extension on a grade 2 listed house in Devon.
We provide: Residential Design / Commercial Design / Biophilic Design / Planning and Building Reg Applications / Barn Conversions / Listed Buildings / Outline Planning Applications / Change of Use Applications / Schedule of Conditions / Property development / Student Accommodation.
Our working area includes the southwest of the UK up to and including London though we have also completed projects as far afield as Taiwan.
Rush Service available. Deferred Fee and Uplift Fee arrangements for planning and outline planning applications available.
