Fastidiousness is in Nick’s genes. Tailors, seamstresses, embroiderers and enough precision engineers to build a good portion of the RMS Queen Mary (one of them did), are in his make up and have resulted in a fascination with historical detailing and building techniques.
Nick is inspired by the way buildings help form our cultural and historic landscape, amplify a sense of place and give us a feeling of continuity. He loves working on projects that connect purposefully with their location, celebrate local materials and crafts, enhance their setting and the environment and improve the quality of life and wellbeing of their users.
He previously worked under the guidance of Simon Morray-Jones and Richard Parr, specialising in the creative re-use of historic buildings – including the Orangery restaurant and Cowshed Relax spa at Babington House, various Cotswold country house estates and contemporary barn conversions.
His work has won a RIBA Conservation Commendation and featured in the Guardian and Grand Designs magazine.
Nick studied architecture at Oxford Brookes University, Kingston University and the University of the West of England. He graduated from Kingston with Distinction and featured in Building Design’s ‘Top 100 graduating students’
He lives with his young family in Bradford on Avon and enjoys being outside indulging in his hobbies of photography, walking and running.
