Meet Simon



I worked closely with Simon over a two-year period, on a retail-led, mixed-use scheme. As an architect, he was able to successfully accommodate demanding changes in brief, whilst still presenting creative and innovative solutions, within program. On a personal level, he always came with a ‘can do attitude,' which was refreshing.
