Craig joined west+machell in 2003 as a RIBA Part III student. After successfully completing his professional exams, Craig became a fully qualified architect in 2004 and an associate in 2014.

During his time at west+machell, Craig has developed his design skills to create exciting, modern, award winning developments. He works closely with the client to ensure his designs meet their brief and budget, but exceeds their aspirations.

Craig has an eye for the weird and wonderful and enjoys taking part in design competitions. His design for the Dyson Airblade Washroom of the Future, run by the national weekly architectural newspaper BD, was 1 of 10 designs to make the shortlist.

From working on Greenhouse, a mixed use eco-development, Craig developed a keen interest and knowledge of ‘Green’ issues. This led him to train at the BRE to become a qualified Code for Sustainable Homes Assessor in 2010. This has proved an enormous benefit to the practice and our clients for it enables us to consider all the sustainable design options to determine the most cost effective solution, building them into the design at a very early stage in the project as oppose to trying to bolt expensive solutions on at the end.
