Senior Team

Tim trained at the Brighton School of Architecture and Interior Design where he qualified with commendation in December 1988. In the same year, he co-published, 'A Guide to the Buildings of Brighton', an ode to more than 200 buildings of architectural interest in the area.

Tim has been a principal of the Practice since 1999, in the capacity of Design Director.

Tim utilises his design vision in conjunction with his project management skills to complete complex projects such as the refurbishment, restoration, reconstruction and extension of listed properties in conservation areas - a large proportion of which have been single family estates throughout the UK and abroad. Many of these projects have required knowledge and sensitivity to the historical building fabric in order to properly integrate the requisite state of the art services such as heating/lighting and AV installation.
