My name is Giles. I am a New Zealand born, London based RIBA / registered architect. I have worked on projects of varying scales, but my area of expertise is remodelling existing buildings - inside and out to release their potential.I am enthusiastic and passionate about construction. My aspiration is to create work which is simple and straight forward with an emphasis on natural materials.I involve the clients on all projects phases and work collaboratively with builders and trades to achieve the best results for the budget.

“We had a flat that was 140 square metres and we were really only using 55 square metres of it. It felt like we were always on a corridor to somewhere. We never really settled – and then Giles came along. We tried to use natural materials where possible and hopefully it will age properly because of that. It will mark and eventually arrive at something that’s taken on a lot of character." Feature in HOME magazine, June / July 2018.

"Giles is by far one of the most professional and friendly architects I have had the pleasure to work with. He has an eye for detail and this is reflected in the that he produces on projects. They are precise, clear and easy to navigate, even on the most complex of requirements. Communication is probably the single most important trait any professional should have, Giles responds quickly but is able to listen to both clients and the construction team. In summary, a highly professional, recommendable and trustworthy architect."

"Giles played a major role in realising a very exacting and demanding brief of a large studio conversion/renovation in Hackney East London. I was extremely impressed with Giles' professionalism and attention to detail. I also found him very personable and enjoyed working with him despite the inevitable stresses of projects of this scale. Throughout Giles was always calm and solved many issues that inevitably arose, making the project one that I am very happy with. I would highly recommend Giles and have in fact done so on a number of occasions. I would happily work with Giles again."
