I am a London-based RIBA Chartered and ARB registered Architect, with a focus on making environmentally conscious homes that are elegant, functional and enriching places to live. I love working with existing houses, renovating and reworking spaces into contemporary homes as well as working on new builds.

We design through drawing, photography, sketching and making. And we pay particular attention to our client's needs and the brief, thinking about the materials we use and the way they go together. We work together with our clients in a spirit of collaboration, and through a process of hands-on workshops, dialogue and discovery.

Loft and Kitchen


Had a great chat with James who gave me some great advice on how to proceed with our project.

I have worked closely with James…. he has designed an unconventional private house extension for me to a tight budget which is about to start on site. I have always found him to be well-organised, efficient, professional and highly responsive to a client brief, and a pleasure to work with. But more than this, he has an ability and willingness to find beautiful and affordable solutions to design challenges, to think round issues inventively and nimbly especially with challenging budgets.

We are delighted with the work James has completed. The house has been extended with a new feature stair, skylights and a light filled extension to our kitchen. The contemporary design blends wonderfully with the original features of the house.

New Makers Bureau are a pleasure to work with and have created beautiful, sustainable designs responding to our brief. We highly recommend James and his team and look forward more projects together.
