Simon is a RIBA Chartered Architect with varied experience across a number of sectors including mixed use retail, residential, hotel and leisure, student accommodation, industrial and community projects, and individual private homes.
"My passion for architecture is about creating buildings that enrich people’s lives. I want to shape beautiful spaces, on a human scale, spaces that lift the spirit, places that feel right, work well, and delight those who experience them.
I thoroughly enjoy the challenges and variety my work brings and enjoy continually developing and enhancing my skills as an Architect . I am delighted to have joined the team at One Design Architects, and I am excited to be part of a vibrant and growing practice.
On a Personal note, I enjoy the outdoors, motorbikes, skiing, and mountain biking, but admit my teenage son now waits for me on the climbs. I am a BSAC Advanced Instructor and taught scuba diving for quite a few years. I enjoy getting out into the countryside for some fresh air when I can, either a walk or a ride on the mountain bike. I would usually say followed by a pint and a pub meal as a reward, however recently that’s been a picnic in the car but still great fun.
I have a positive can-do attitude; seeing challenges as opportunities and I’m really looking forward to the exciting opportunities to come."
