I started my architectural career working with highly skilled craftsman designing and ‘hands on’ building Buddhist temples. This has inevitably informed my approach to design. Since that time I have worked on the design of a variety of buildings from complex civic building to crafting homes for individuals.

I endeavour to listen carefully to the client, try to understand their aspirations and vision for their home. I try consciously not to impose any particular style or solution onto a client understanding my role instead is to facilitate the homeowner in transforming their aspiration into reality.

Alongside architectural practice I have been a teacher of meditation and mindfulness for over fifteen years. This connection inevitably leads to the other main aspect of my architectural work which is creating spiritual spaces. I have worked on a number of Temples and meditation spaces.

James was enthusiastic about our project from the outset. He provided a free no obligation home visit which was generous and informative. He inspired confidence in his advice on design, tendering and construction and his quotation was competitive. His interest in the potential of architecture to make a difference to family life came across strongly.

Being first time buyers with a big project on our hands, it was extremely reassuring to have James working with us on it. He was a calm yet confident and transparent presence, helping realise our own ideas, as well as inspiring us with some fabulous features that we never would have come up with on our own. He worked to within our budget and was available whenever we needed him to answer any questions that we had. Thank you James!

We were extremely happy with the services provided by James. He listened to our brief and more importantly took time in getting to know our likes and dislikes before presenting us with various options that met all our requirements. We found James to be professional, knowledgeable, innovative and approachable. His manner enabling a productive working relationship, and resulting in house we are proud to call home. We would without hesitation recommend him.
