Kings Heath Architect is closed

Dear Friends,

I am writing to let you know that my architecture practice is now closed since the 31st of August 2020. I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with some really great people and the satisfaction of helping to deliver some great projects. I have been very happy in my work. I particularly want to thank the wonderful builders I have been lucky enough to work with, who have surpassed my expectations for quality and workmanship and got me out of a few scrapes as well. A special thanks to my engineer. Thanks David, what would I do without you?

I am now solely work in Germany as an employee in a small practice but I look back on my adventure as a sole trader architect with a lot of happy memories. Sending you my best wishes and thank you for five wonderful years.

We have a breakthrough

 
The bifold doors will go here. The external ground will be lowered by about 600mm and the new insulated floor slab will be about a foot higher than the sand. A nice project. 

On another matter, I was able to help the builder (we help each other really) to resolve issues for the drainage, structure and the spatial arrangement.  I attend site partly because I am a nosey person, but also because my role as the architect is monitor the progress of the works and assist with the technical design. So I am there assure the quality of the work. I like that too.
