His breadth of experience covers a range of scales and uses, propagating insightful and forward-thinking design approaches. This experience is largely focused in London and the UK, though he has also been involved in masterplanning and built projects in the Netherlands, Germany, Ireland and China. He is particularly interested in the potential for multi-disciplinary design teams and public/ private stakeholder partnerships to create holistic and sustainable masterplans and buildings.

Andrew currently also teaches at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam, bringing together architecture, urban design, and landscape architecture students to share a collective studio that explores design solutions in a from each perspective in unison.

After graduating with a first class honours degree from the Manchester School of Architecture in 2005 Andrew returned to the same School for his MA (dist., 2008) and B.Arch (2009).  His work at university centred on urban regeneration in the northwest of England. He has presented this work at the International Making Cities Livable conference, and was selected for the ‘Highlights from Graduate Shows 2009’ in Blueprint Magazine.

Andrew was involved as a team leader in the 2017 Outer London Station Sites conference at the NLA, taking part in a major design charrette, organised as part of the London’s Towns research, which brought together young professionals to explore future visions for the development of five TfL station sites in outer London. Andrew’s multi-disciplinary team produced an innovative, blue-sky thinking, site specific proposal to demonstrate the potential for town centre station sites across the city.

In 2011 Andrew was co-author of the winning Europan competition entry for the Capelle aan den IJsell site, near Rotterdam, producing a residential masterplan.
