For over a decade I worked for three large architectural practices - Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (1997-2004), BBM Sustainable Design (2004-2007) and Matthew Lloyd Architects (2007-2010) - and enjoyed the challenges of being involved in large projects of all kinds. You can read more about them here.
Since then, I have been working independently both for my previous employers and with my own clients. I take pleasure in being the driving force behind astula and relish the close relationships born out of the dialogue with clients who always have a great influence on the design process.
I will listen to your ideas and ask you about how you live. I'll encourage you to imagine how your spaces can be transformed and how they will bring improvement to the everyday. Through listening, talking and sketching, we will alight on a design that is every bit as beautiful and functional as it can be.

This Latin word fits perfectly with what I do. It embodies something of my classical training in architecture at the Beaux-Arts School in Paris; as the root of the French word ‘atelier’, it speaks of a place where creative work happens; and with its original meaning of ‘little wooden board’ it harks back to the humble raw material out of which so many great things are made.
