Areas of Expertise

I have particular conservation expertise and have delivered both new-build and large scale conservation projects at internationally significant historic sites, including at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, and for the National Trust.

I am currently leading design and delivery of an important programme of works at Grade I listed Queen’s College, Oxford. A champion of design quality in the profession, I am Chair of both LB Camden’s and Kensington & Chelsea's Design Review Panels, a member of the LLDC (Olympic Legacy) panel and the new Oxford panel, where I enjoy reviewing and providing strategic design advice at early planning stage. I have been a BEE at the Design Council since 2005, most recently serving on a confidential advice panel for a public estate.

I have taught and lectured widely, sat on architectural and construction awards juries and am currently external examiner on the International Architectural Masters course at University of Ghent, Belgium.
