Hi, I'm Mark,

​One of my favourite things i​s ​discovering better ways ​to ​create the places where we live, work and play. ...So ​I spend a lot of my time ​researching ​and figuring out how ​to apply ​what I've learned in the real world. ​My next favourite thing is, ​sharing ​what I learn with other people, ​so ​they can ​live a better life. 

​As an architect ​I help homeowners, self-builders, developers and social landlords find creative solutions, so they can create homes they are proud.

Find out how I can start helping you down below:
