James studied at the University of Portsmouth, University of Westminster and London Metropolitan University, graduating with a distinction and qualifying as an architect in 2015.
James joined Eric Parry Architects in 2013. He was a key member of the project team which recently completed a new £5.2million new music school for Brighton College, the first phase of a new Performing Arts Centre by EPA at the school’s campus. James has also worked on the construction of Wells Cathedral School’s new 400 seat, £6.5 million recital hall in Somerset. Located within the heart of the school’s existing listed Georgian landscape, the project provides both the school and the local community with a new and innovative recital hall space alongside a number of specialised musical rehearsal rooms. In addition, James was involved throughout the design and construction of King’s College, Wimbledon’s new £2.5 million dining hall.
Alongside his work in the practice’s educational sector, James has been heavily involved in the development of proposals of the £4.5m renovation of the Grade II* St John’s, Waterloo church. The project seeks to modernise a number of spaces within the building’s crypt, provide a better setting for the church’s numerous musical activities and bring a greater liturgical focus to the main space of the church.
