I’m a Certified Passive House Designer and ARB registered architect, having gained my degree and masters in architecture at The Bartlett, UCL. Prior to founding my practice in 2012, I worked at Eric Parry Architects in London and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture in New York where I was involved in a number of high-profile and award-winning civic and commercial projects.

My practice works across London and the Home Counties, specialising in one-off new-build homes and multi-unit residential developments. We have lots of experience delivering high-quality design and a proven track record securing planning permissions for sensitive sites and buildings that are listed or located within Conservation Areas. We often work with clients who are in the process of purchasing a property or trying to find sites and can attend viewings to advise on layout, design, budget and any permissions that might be required.

I believe the most successful projects are the ones with the best working relationships with our clients, knowing that we’re all pulling in the same direction to achieve a shared goal. I feel that it’s important to lead the design conversation whilst ensuring the process is a collaborative one. We encourage our clients to be ambitious and to step out of their comfort zone.

“We worked with James on the renovation of our Victorian Town Hall property. This was our second project working with the team; we didn’t really consider any other architects given our great experience on the first project. I cannot recommend James enough and look forward to our next big project together!”
Jessica, London
I hired James to handle the complete overhaul of my Chelsea townhouse after a competitive bidding process and an unsuccessful start with another prestigious firm. What a revelation! Thoughtful, fresh and intelligent designs; James and Anna are extremely methodical, organised and detail orientated. They listen carefully to the brief and guide you gently to well thought out solutions, including the choice of materials and all necessary design details. And very importantly, they respect the budget. Always responsive, utterly professional, they will have thought through everything before you do. They led the contractor appointment process brilliantly and their meticulous ongoing management of the project makes it a real pleasure. Young heads on very solid shoulders and a practice that deserves to continue winning awards.
Joy, London
I have been working with James's practice for nearly two years and have been very happy with their services. As a property developer, I need my design team to think outside the box and come up with creative, efficient and cost-effective solutions which the team consistently does. They are friendly, responsive and very professional. I have recently instructed James on a new multi-unit residential development project in Hackney and am very much looking forward to working closely with them.
