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 an area I specialise in. 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 designed and built here. I built the interior joinery and staircase at Coast House myself. Bat Wing Studio is currently under construction following CNC fabrication.




What other people said...


“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.”

- Review on Houzz


“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.
