George has always worked in the private residential sector designing bespoke houses for more than 10 years. Before joining Granit, George worked as at Project Architect at Jo Townshend Architects in Blackheath and the Goater Jones practice in Richmond. George is a qualified Architect. He completed his part 1 degree at The Welsh School of Architecture, his Masters in Architecture (also known as the Part 2) at The Sheffield School of Architecture, and his professional Postgraduate Certificate (or Part 3) at The Cass in London. George has a particular interest in sustainability and sustainable design. Simply put, he sees this as the future. “Sustainable design requires that we are always meeting higher standards for those that live in our buildings; be it meeting higher energy standards or specifying healthier materials and finishes. Improved quality of life drives everything as does meeting the demands of today without forfeiting tomorrow.” George is currently studying for a Masters in Sustainability and Adaptability in the Built Environment, at the Graduate School of the Environment, Centre for Alternative Technology. George's architectural inspirations include the work of critical regionalists such as Alvaro Siza and Alvar Aalto due to their ability to sensitively combine the vernacular architecture with modern construction, creating a richly contextual 'architecture of place'.
