Charles Green B.A. [Hons] Architecture.
Born in South Africa, Charles emigrated to England in 1979. Based initially in the home counties, Charles worked on a freelance basis for a number of London interior design practices before moving to Cornwall in 1992 to set up the current architectural design practice in Redruth.
Charles has acquired a broad knowledge of design – in theory and in practice – and has proven ability for achieving successful design solutions on difficult sites. Charles’ design philosophy is to treat every project as being unique. All design solutions are inspired and driven by the particular environment and constraints presented.
Charles has been interested in Environmental issues since the early 1990’s and he has a particular interest in and experience of building with straw bales, having completed a straw bale Kitchen extension on his home in 2013.
As principle designer, Charles oversees each project within the office, ensuring consistent levels of quality in design and project information produced.
Matthias joined the practice in April 2008. He has since gained an HNC in construction from Plymouth.
Matthias has developed a substantial knowledge of environmental issues, renewable technologies, surveying and sustainable refurbishment of existing dwellings. As the practice technician, Matthias firmly anchors the practice within the real world.
