The successful creation of distinctive buildings requires exploration, invention and teamwork.”

Driven by a desire to create engaging and contemporary architecture that responds to its context, James works closely with key clients across a wide range of scales and typologies in both the public and private sectors.

Notable projects include the Fulham Gasworks masterplan, 64 Old Church Street, 1 & 6 Merchant Square, The Smith Centre in Henley, the BCO award-winning offices at 400 & 450 Longwater Avenue and 2 Trafalgar Way, a student accommodation-led mixed-use scheme of three buildings in Canary Wharf, which is on-site and set to become Europe's tallest Passivhaus building.

He is currently working on a variety of projects across the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

James sits on both the Operations Board and the Board of Trustees, overseeing the strategic development of the practice and its culture.

He engages with the broader architectural profession as a writer and commentator, is a strong advocate of the Architecture Apprenticeship Programme in which the studio is engaged and has been a visiting critic at the Bartlett School of Architecture, where he studied.
