I started my design career under the direction of Dutch Bauhaus architect Matthias (Bart) Wevers in Masterton during the mid to latter 60s before moving to Rotorua in 1971 to take up a post at Lockwood Buildings.

After a few years in the Lockwood design department I moved to Tauranga and eventually established my own independent practice in 1978.

This gave me the opportunity to continue producing residential design incorporating the clean simple lines of the influencing Bauhaus discipline suitably reinforced by my recent association with Jo La Grouw and JJ van Loghem at Lockwood, both of whom augmented my ‘Continental European’ design philosophies.

The underlying philosophy of my practice is to produce exciting and practical design solutions focused on honest materials, function and form utilising the principles of simple Mid Century Modern structures.

My current studio focus is on renovation, alteration and addition projects. Repurposing existing homes to improve the living environment and lifestyle amenities.
