Tim joined design engine in February 2019 after graduating from the Kent School of Architecture with a Masters in Architecture (RIBA Part II).
During his final year at university, Tim developed his design thesis through a series of exploratory tectonic studies focusing on the expressive narratives of processes in traditional crafts. These physical constructs served to further the brief of the ‘Institute of Construction’ and aid in the selection of a site in Dover town centre, Kent. His project sought to offer trade skills training and provide product export to boost the local production landscape; offer opportunities in community driven ‘maker spaces’; and uncover and celebrate the rich Roman history of the town to help heal the social and economic wounds still evident from the damage inflicted by the World Wars.
Prior to joining design engine, Tim gained experience working on projects in the Residential, Commercial, and Hotel sectors at an architectural practice in West London. Intrigued by the complexities involved during RIBA Stages 3-4 of the refurbishment and extension of a Grade II* listed house in Hampstead Heath, Tim undertook a research and design thesis during his master’s degree that sought to examine the social, environmental and technological implications of energy performance retrofit measures to sensitive buildings.
