Aims

I aim to create buildings that respect their surroundings yet make their own statement. Buildings that define their space in volumes that inspire, yet flow with function.

To do this involves knowing your real needs, determining a solution and then leading you through the ever increasing maze of rules, regulations, legislation and approvals.

Creating good architecture is about solving problems. If you have a problem - I'd be happy to help.

Experience 

My experience is broad, after qualifying as an architectural technician, in my mid 20's I went back to 5 years of full time education and qualified as an architect. Ten years later (and feeling frustrated with the ever increasing legal complexities that face construction professionals), I enrolled on the MSc course in Construction Law and Arbitration at King's College London. Having gained the MSc, I went on to become a chartered arbitrator.

My interest in things new gives me the enthusiasm to keep abreast of modern methods of working. I've mastered the use of 3D design software, (which enables me to quickly prepare clear visualisations of my ideas) and my legal training helps me to quickly focus on the changes in legislative and procedural matters that one is faced with in the procurement of new building work.

I've worked on buildings in the residential, commercial, retail, healthcare and leisure sectors, from the perspectives of sole practitioner, practice partner, contractor and arbitrator.

In addition to the design, production information and project management services that architects provide, I'm able to help in matters relating to planning appeals, restrictive covenants and construction disputes.  

My services can be tailored to suit your needs and I'm happy to charge on either a fixed fee, or hourly rate basis.  Lately, the majority of my work has been for private clients, dealing with remodelling and new build projects, in both the UK and Greece. I intend to continue working as a sole practitioner, it enables me to remain competitive by providing my services free of VAT.

I understand the practicalities of building, in the past I've built, reconstructed and remodelled several of my own properties, and I'm about to embark on another new build home.
