Light, Space and Materials ︎
Dark old homes should be brought up to modern standards by flooding them with natural light, improving their energy efficiency standards and orienting towards key views; making them warmer, brighter and nicer to live in. 

One-on-One design service ︎
I personally see all projects through from the start to the very end - meaning nothing is lost along the way. I’m an independant practitioner and I don’t charge VAT. Read more about working with a small practice here.

Design through iteration ︎ 
Design is an iterative process and we will keep going until we find the best solution. If you’re not happy then I’m not happy- that’s my personal guarantee.


Visualise the result and imagine the potential.

We will walk through your new home in three dimensional design discussions, adapting designs during our discussion, ensuring every last detail has been considered.

Detailed perspective visualisations and flythrough videos are a key part of my service.



Design for Manufacture
Design for high quality digital manufacture is a key specialism. I have hands on experience working with high precision cnc manufacturing.

I work directly with engineers and craftspeople to fine-tune design detail and produce the best possible built outcome. This can include producing digital cutting information for production of bespoke furniture, staircases and building elements, ensuring millimetre accuracy in production and finish.

Read more about digitial manufacture and the CNC machine I built here. I built the interiors of Coast House myself.

“Tom is great guy - passionate about what he does, very creative with great attention to detail. I've enjoyed working with him and look forward to seeing his design get built shortly.”

“He made the most of the building but was always being willing to listen to our thoughts and incorporate them in the plans so it felt like our project not his. He has great attention to detail and really thinks through how things will be made. He was sympathetic to the old building, caring to preserve the structure and feel of it, whilst transforming it into a comfortable, modern space suitable for family living for many more decades.”

About Me  


Architecture should be uplifting and memorable, it should feel permanent and durable. It should be relevant to its place, framing key views and oriented to the climatic conditions, bringing natural light deep within. I am committed to producing unique and memorable spaces and are a delight to inhabit.

Prior to working alone I gained experience at award winning design-led architecture practices in London. At Panter Hudspith Architects, a practice known for designing sensitive additions to historic contexts, I worked on the RIBA and RICS award winning redevelopment of the Oxford Westgate Shopping Centre. Following this I worked on the large West Grove South ‘mixed-use’ development in Elephant and Castle. West Grove South was a finalist for the ‘Best Large Housing Development’ Brick Award and received a Commondation for the ‘Urban Regeneration’ Brick Award.

At ‘Grand Designs’ famous Carl Turner Architects I lead a hands-on build of the an office fit out project and then the technical design of a large new build home on a back-land site in Hove. At Burgess Architects I was brought in as project architect for a new-build timber frame eco-house in Horsham and a high-spec loft conversion project in Fulham. I also worked on a series of other unique residential projects in South London and heritage settings in Dulwich.

I recieved a Distinction at The Royal College of Art and was tutored by the Jamie Fobert Architects, award winning architects of the Tate St Ives and National Portrait Gallery redevelopment. I was also tutored by digital fabrication researcher Guan Lee, film maker Clara Kraft and Satoshi Isono of Universal Design Studio at Grymsdyke Farm.

Prior to the RCA I recieved a First Class BA(Hons) Architecture from The University of Sheffeld. I completed my professional accreditation at the University of Westminster.
