The first thing you need to know about me is that I love my work! Originally qualified in Psychology and Anthropology, with a Masters in Anthropology, I began working with buildings in 2001 which was (I thought at the time) something of a leap… However I am fortunate to be able to use all this formal education, as well as my Post Grad in Architectural Interior Design, on a daily basis within my career. I get a deep sense of satisfaction in understanding both the human needs that link us all, and the contextual and individual needs of my clients. This fundamental understanding enables me, alongside my team, to create resonant spaces that our clients love for many years, often re-engaging us for additional homes.
I very much enjoy exceeding my client’s expectations, achieved this through a collaborative partnership and a wholly client-centred, transparent process.
Be it a boot room fit out, a full holiday home renovation or an open plan remodel, I strive for my designs to be authentic, layered and timeless, resulting in each project resonating with my client and their lifestyle.
A little bit of trumpet blowing now – I am the only Hampshire and West Sussex Architectural Interior Designer trained to Post Graduate level, awarded with distinction, by the renowned London Inchbald School of Design. It was during this study that I met Verena McNamara who I am thrilled to say is now a senior designer with us.
Area-wise, we work predominantly in the southern areas of Hampshire and West Sussex, though we have also completed projects in London, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Amsterdam and Germany.
I look forward to talking with you!
