Residential unit studies
I have spent time exploring the possibilities of small spaces. These were generic design exercises exploring new possibilities in compact residential accommodation and how to maximise the use of space within them.
As space becomes a rarer commodity in large cities, pressure increases on the use of space prompting innovative solutions to offer the best quality living environment within constrained spaces.
Similar to yatch interiors, where inventive use is made of every nook and cranny, quantity is not always quality and this challenge presents ample opportunity to demonstrate this.
Various London projects
A large part of my work in other practices has involved design in the initial stages of projects. These were done as feasibility studies with the intention to test the potential for development of various sites.
Some sites are located within Conservation Areas or other challenging settings.
These projects seek to create the best architectural solution in a manner sympathetic to their context.
New marina development in Malta
This project presented an unique opportunity to design buildings within an extraordinary historical setting.
The site is located on an island facing the World Heritage Site city of Valetta.
I was involved from the outset in the development of the masterplan for the whole island and went on to design the various housing typologies in this luxury marina development aimed at the international yachting set.
