I specialise in bespoke residential projects and have extensive experience of working with existing buildings and new build at all job stages seeing projects from drawing board to completion. I take as much pride in the technical and detailed design and construction stages as in initial design.

I enjoy the challenge of each individual project, big or small and believe in working closely with the client to produce a tailored design that is responsive to their needs, context and budget, whilst seeking to add a little beauty along the way.

We had a great consultation with Stephen. He was very friendly and a good listener. He arrived well-prepared for the visit, with some examples of previous work and having already looked up floor plans of our house. He is knowledgable about materials and was sensitive to our budget. He also got back to us very promptly with a fee proposal and further information. Although we haven’t made any decisions yet, I would definitely recommend Stephen.

Stephen is working with us on the design and delivery of the extension to our home, and has been fantastic to work with. From the very start, helping us to design a space in a way/style that fitted both our preferences, and providing help, expertise and ideas--all with remarkable patience.

Stephen's work and professionalism has been of an excellent standard. This was our first time undertaking such a project, so we were grateful for his guidance through the process, always taking time to explain the necessary steps, and using his experience and creativity to help us think through various options. He has always been on hand for advice and his input has been invaluable, enabling us to see solutions that we would otherwise not have thought of. He has also been a great help allaying fears, or--visa versa--very diplomatic when needing to tell us something might be a tad unfeasible, or expensive!

We would not hesitate to recommend working with him.

We have been using the services of Stephen [and his practice]. He has just finished the whole process of helping us plan and tender for the redesign, extension and renovation of our very dilapidated house on a corner plot in East Dulwich. He is very easy to work with, comes up with great ideas but always makes sure you are the one who has the final say. His previous experience of dealing with Southwark council was invaluable in enabling us to negotiate planning permission as was his support in dealing with some tricky party wall agreement negotiations. His eye for detail and previous experience in managing large scale contracts was essential in managing the tendering process and finding us a builder who we feel we can trust and at a price that we can afford.

'Our decision to employ Stephen (and his practise) for the duration of the design and construction was fundamental in ensuring the brief was not compromised.' 'We now live in a property which outshines the first initial thoughts that we had over two years ago when we first contemplated changes. 421 is vastly improved as a family home. We are beyond grateful to Stephen for bringing such light into our home life!'
