After completing my first degree in the 90s I went to work in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. At that time KL was a rapidly developing urban centre and in the process of building the worlds highest skyscraper, the Petronas Towers which were completed in 1996. It was a fascinating city to work in architecture. Initially I worked for Ken Yeang, a leading and groundbreaking architect who amongst other projects designed bioclimatic skyscrapers, looking towards environmentally sustainable office towers. During my time in KL I also worked for Davenport Campbell, who interior designed luxury hotels and high-end office spaces throughout South East Asia and Australia.
I obtained a first class degree in Interior Architecture at Brighton University, a leading UK design school. Then completed four years post-graduate study at the Architectural Association (Richard Rogers, Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid) and I am part 2 certified by RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects).
Upon my return from KL I set up a design studio. My aim was to apply leading edge design concepts to residential projects in Greater London. Interest and investment in cutting edge residential homes was just taking off. Since then I have completed more than 100 residential projects – ranging from single rooms to large- scale projects including both extensions and complete remodelling etc. Services include concept design, drawings, obtaining planning permission, project contract administration and interior design.
