Prior to the partnership being formed in 2003, Nick established his own practice in 1989 and built up a reputation for working on historic buildings including timber frame structures. These specialisms continue to shape the practice today, with Nick using his longstanding knowledge and understanding of these unique buildings to take a lead on many timber frame and church projects in the West Midlands area.Having developed a passion for historical building work and architecture at an early age, it’s no surprise that Nick has built up a reputation as one of the area’s leading architects in building conservation.
Nick studied Architecture at Oxford Brookes University, during which time he built a relationship with the Worcester based architectural practice of FWB and Mary Charles, nationally recognised experts on the repair of timber framed structures. Freddie Charles acted as an external tutor assisting with Nick’s dissertation, which focussed on a medieval aisled hall in Oxfordshire.
Following university Nick worked for Julian Harrap Architects on projects connected with the Spitalfields Trust in the east end of London before coming to Worcester to work with Freddie Charles. It was after Freddie retired in 1989 that Nick established his own practice.
In his spare time, Nick enjoys walking, cycling and travelling to study vernacular architecture.
