Tobias is particularly interested in the fusion of modern architecture with historic fabric, enabling the development of historic buildings to be clearly read.
Before starting Tonic Architecture with Nick Tomlinson, Tobias worked at Parr Walker & Associates in the Cotswolds where he focused on the high-end domestic sector, creatively refurbishing and extending listed country properties and estates, as well as designing new and contemporary one-off houses.
He has also worked for Alec French Architects in Bristol, on education and mixed-use development projects, and Hamiltons Architects in London on landmark residential and commercial projects, including a scheme for 101 apartments overlooking Hyde Park, and a £9m contemporary private house in Buckinghamshire.
Tobias studied architecture at Oxford Brookes University and became a chartered architect through the Architectural Association, London. He is a RIBA-accredited Conservation Registrant.
In 2003 he was awarded the first prize for an international design competition arranged by Corus British Steel (now Tata).
Outside of the studio, Tobias is kept occupied by his children, cycling, archery and motorsport. Esse quam videri.
