Design for life...

My contemporary interiors fuse cutting edge with comfort and function with form. My career as an interior designer began 25 years ago and sprang from a first class honours degree in design. Having created traditional and modern, domestic and commercial spaces, I now specialise in contemporary commercial interiors, most often in the leisure sector including creating bespoke furniture and artwork for the interiors.

Launching my own company in 2003 was the culmination of six years specialising in the design and building of hotels, bars and restaurants. My work has featured in several publications including Sleeper and Light Magazine. Strong abilities in conceptual design, CAD drawing, furniture design, detailing and project co-ordination not only drive me to create a stunning interior, but just as importantly, all my client needs to achieve their operational requirements - an interior that works!

I have experience in working with Planners and Building Control within Listed buildings as well as new build projects. I relish heading a team to create a £7 million interior as much as hand painting a 70-foot ceiling. My attitude towards the work I do and the service I offer is: make each project the best that it can be, exceed expectations, shatter preconceptions and try to make it an enjoyable adventure for all. And of course, on budget and on time.
My role within a project includes:

  • Site survey and production of existing layout drawings
  • Concept layouts
  • Operational design
  • Lighting design
  • Bespoke furniture design and space planning
  • All working drawings
  • Full Design Scheme
  • Detailed drawings to facilitate joinery and metalwork construction
  • Product sourcing
  • Contractor liaison
  • Creation of site specific artwork including painting, photography, three dimensional pieces

..............or any part of this list.
