I am Head of Historic Building Conservation at Stride Treglown and a dedicated architect who thrives when creating inspired solutions suited for sensitive heritage contexts. I aspire to be culturally sensitive and professional in all projects I engage with. Focused and well-versed in conservation philosophy, I am driven to challenge, develop and create quality design proposals that are sympathetic and complimentary, and, where appropriate, thematically inspired by the place, to create meaningful architecture that has longevity.
During my fourteen years of experience at Stride Treglown I have won several design awards for my work in the historic environment including RIBA Regional and National Awards. As an Associate Architect I am involved in the entire process of a project – from developing the brief to final handover. Throughout that process, I always assumes a collaborative role with my clients. I am certain that the path to health, happiness, wealth and wellbeing is one that puts people, culture, history and art central to our planning process.
As an AABC registered architect I am 1 of approximately 420 conservation accredited architects in the UK recognised by Historic England (formally English Heritage) as qualified to work on Scheduled Ancient Monuments and Listed Buildings of all grades. I have gathered 4 years of practical experience as a builder and recognise that experience is invaluable when it comes to working with contractors, running projects on-site and achieving excellence in the built form.
I am a member of the Devon & Somerset Design Review Panel and the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings.
