Simon has seen many changes in our market place and has a wealth of experienced in all aspects of both design and planning. He has a good rapport with clients and a natural empathy for the built environment having worked on many listed properties as well as hotels and other hospitality locations. Simon is happy to take the brief from the client, but also work closely with architects and other professionals.
His design for St Michael’s Manor (a boutique hotel in St Albans) recently won an award from the civic society with the following citation: "The attention to detail, the high quality of the finish and the view from the first floor rooms, makes the orangery a significant asset to this unique family run hotel and to the city”.
Simon believes his great strength is being able to visualise the concept before he starts any drawing and after more than 20 years in the industry, he still gets a real buzz from his work.
