We are an architectural practice which seeks to innovate and inspire whatever the scale. We work with enthusiasm and commitment to deliver the best outcome for our clients.


If you’re looking for a hands-on designer who understands every aspect of a building project, then I would love to help. I straddle the gaps that so often emerge between a beautiful design and the practicalities of a building site.

It all starts with listening. I find out exactly what you want out of your project and how you want to live and work in the new space. Together we’ll come up with a design that gives you everything you want and more.

You can then leave me to handle Planning and Building Regulations. You can trust me to keep hold of the big picture while not forgetting the importance of detail. You’ll know that I’ve got a firm grip on costs and that I’m working within your budget. And, because I’m both a designer and a maker, I’ll understand every stage of your project inside out.

All of this means a smooth and cost-effective approach, and a building that lives up to the initial design.

I’m based in Brighton, working throughout East & West Sussex, Kent, Surrey & London – and sometimes further afield.


I’m an Architectural Designer and Chartered Technologist. Or, in more human terms, I’m a designer with a serious interest in architecture, engineering and craft.

I’ve always been interested in buildings. My father was a highly skilled carpenter and joiner, and I grew up watching and learning how to make things myself. I spent time on building sites, learning the skills that have now become part of what I do.


“Following a couple of disappointing experiences with other architects we were introduced to Tristan. We met on site to discuss the issue & lay out for the change of use of our existing garage. We were extremely impressed with the range of ideas and the very innovative approach, especially for Eastbourne. Two weeks later we were bowled over by the 3D sketches of a totally transformed building that certainly had the wow factor. Tristan is like a breath of fresh air, very personable, extremely talented & bursting with new & exciting ideas. It has been the greatest pleasure for us to work with him.

“We found Tristan through Grand Designs Live ‘ask the expert’. From start to finish, Tristan was a joy to work with. He understood our vision and gave us inspiring and cost appropriate ideas for the build that we would neither have considered nor imagined without his knowledge and expertise. He understands budgets and planning, is enthusiastic and clearly has a passion for his work. Thank you Tristan. Highly recommended.”
