Julian founded the Practice with John Woolstencroft in 1989 and, over the last 25 years, has overseen its growth to over 60 staff with five Partners. Within the Practice he oversees financial management, compliance, marketing and future strategy.
His wide-ranging experience encompasses residential, healthcare, education and commercial projects at a variety of scales. With an interest in delivering architecture that serves the community, Julian has led on several of the Practice’s healthcare projects. Notably, he oversaw the development of the Well Street Surgery, one of Hackney’s largest practices, which comprises multiple healthcare and community facilities on the site of an old textiles factory.
Julian manages the design and construction of major projects in Studio Two and is the interface with client and consulting organisations throughout this process. He has a keen interest in Building Information Modelling (BIM) and oversees its application to projects, from the development of a digital model of a building to design optimisation through value engineering. Several of our projects currently on site are being delivered using new BIM technology, including Stratford Plaza and Broadway Chambers in east London.
