Steve developed an interest in architecture after moving from a very rural environment to an urban one at an impressionable age. This interest was reinforced through self-education while at school.
He studied at Leicester Polytechnic School of Architecture (1970 – 1973) and the Architectural Association (1974 – 1976), where he became a Unit Tutor (1980 –1984). Prior to Henley Halebrown, Steve worked for a number of very well-regarded UK practices including: Neylan & Ungless; DEGW; ECD (Energy Conscious Design); Harper Mackay & Levitt Bernstein.
In 1999, Steve started at Henley Halebrown and was made an Associate in 2008. His first project was a remodelling of an existing building for an international advertising agency. Since then, Steve has worked with Henley Halebrown on a wide variety of building types – including cultural and educational facilities as well as designing in the healthcare sector. Due to his broad experience, Steve has helped develop the practice’s quality management systems which include internal technical reviews.
