BSc (Hons) DipArch ARB
Damien studied architecture at the University of Wales, Cardiff and Kingston University, graduating in 2002. Following a stint in his native Channel Islands, Damien has been practicing in London for the past twelve years, initially on predominantly residential projects in West London for De Matos Ryan Architects, before joining Eric Parry Architects in 2006. He was appointed Associate in 2014.
Damien spent his first year with Eric Parry developing the first iteration of a design for a 63,000m² commercial building at 10 Fenchurch Avenue in the City of London. This building is now on site with completion planned for 2017.
Damien went on to work on the redevelopment of 50 New Bond Street and 14 St George Street, creating two high quality office buildings on a highly restricted Mayfair site. The development included retail and residential spaces and work to listed historic buildings. Damien was responsible for the development and coordination of the facade design along with various internal packages.
Damien was Project Architect on 40 Queens Grove, a new build villa on the Eyre Estate in the St John’s Wood Conservation Area. The house was envisaged by the Client as an exemplar of modern construction methodology and sustainable design, meeting the rigorous requirements of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
Damien is currently working on a new Performing Arts Centre for Brighton College, an independent secondary school. The first phase consists of a new music building and recital hall, currently on site, with completion anticipated for Autumn 2015. It is a technically complex and innovative building inserted into the heart of the historic college campus. It will achieve very high standards of acoustic performance and state of the art environmental design.
