I am an architect working within Arup’s Building Envelope Design team and am based in Cape Town, South Africa. Since joining Arup in 2011, my focus has been on integrated design thinking that is founded on sustainable principles. 

My MSc thesis was an investigation in to how biodiversity could be incorporated in to building envelopes; the outcome of a lifelong passion for nature conservation and my professional life as a building envelope designer. 

I am fascinated by the relationship between man and nature on all scales, and am driven by a desire to deliver integrated, holistic and high performance work of the highest quality. I am particularly interested in how we can deliver high performance buildings in a low tech environment.
