Hello and thank you for looking at my profile! My name is John and I am a chartered architect with over twenty years experience in the wonderful world of architecture, particularly in obtaining planning success for my clients.

My experience encompasses a wide range of project types, from one-off country houses to home extensions, cinemas to theatres, city masterplans to sea front strategies, renovating listed buildings for apartment use to converting former offices for student accommodation. The common thread for every project is the aim to create places that people will want to inhabit. I consider design to be an iterative and collaborative process, combining historical and contemporary study, artistic endeavour, holistic working and the consideration of current and future sustainability needs to produce quality schemes that are rigorous, legible and uplifting.

If you would like to know more, or would like to talk about your project, please do get in touch.

We were unsure of what could and couldn't be done with our new home, given its listed status and approached John for advice. What was clear was the fact that the years hadn't been kind to the house and its former use as offices left us with awkward and inappropriate spaces for a family dwelling. John steered us through the planning and execution stages in a friendly and professional manner. We are thoroughly pleased with the end result!

We needed a larger and more environmentally friendly home to replace the house that has stood on the land for almost 100 years. We were unsure of how to proceed given that the plot is in an AONB. John helped us see the potential of the plot and went on to design a discretely modern home, secure planning permission and assist during the construction stage. We are very happy in our new home.

John has created an excellent design for the sunken house on my site. Not only has he provided the accommodation I wanted, he has ensured that all rooms will receive natural light and views and the house will still benefit from a beautiful garden. Impressive!
