Architectural projects at a range of scales from considered housing extensions upwards.
Central to the philosophy of the studio is the practice of making objects by hand.
This can be seen in the development of projects as well as in their construction.
The focus on craftsmanship is guided by years spent in the building industry after gaining a First Class degree in Fine Art before working for several leading London architectural practices and qualifying as an architect.

A simple extension to a 1950s semi-detached house in Kent.
Space and light are introduced to the rear of the house which was cramped and awkward to use.
A large new opening to the rear opens up the house to views of woodland beyond.
Conversion and renovation of a small Grade II listed building originally built as an annexe to the main house alongside.
The building had been used as a commercial unit for many years.
The space has been converted to create a simple cottage which is sympathetic to the original character of the architecture.
An extension to a Grade II Listed property in Kent. The formal character of the original building is defined by its unusual roof shape and prominent chimney.
The proposal draws on the craftsmanship and materials of the original building whilst being sympathetic to its form and heritage and strengthens the connection to the external spaces.
Designed as a family house situated on the outskirts of a village in Hampshire. The design seeks to establish a connection with the sloping site and the surrounding landscape whilst providing a suitable living space for a modern family.
A Grade II Listed farmhouse situated within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The original house had been extended over the years eroding the original character.
The new design realigns the balance of the garden facing elevation with the extended form whilst also enlarging bedroom spaces on the first floor and reordering the circulation and layout.
Originally a single-storey bungalow situated in the Kent countryside. A large family home has been created by adding a floor whilst retaining most of the ground floor layout.
In order to build on the existing foundations, a lightweight timber frame was chosen to form the first-floor structure.
The project is currently on-site, the external skin is finished and the scaffold is soon to be removed.
