Michael joined Lewis & Hickey in 2006 as a qualified Architect and has held the position of Director of Architecture since 2011. Michael has worked on all stages of projects from feasibility through to completion, across a diverse range of types and sectors. His key experience is in the design and delivery of residential, commercial, mixed use and retail projects. Michael has also designed and run a number of education projects and one-off houses.
Based in the London office, Michael manages the output of the architectural teams with a remit to ensuring the practice upholds a high standard of design throughout.
Michael has excellent communication and analytical skills and is able to quickly understand the opportunities and constraints presented especially by challenging sites. Michael’s strengths are in his presentational style and his ability to quickly and effectively express ideas to Clients, Planners and relevant project stakeholders. He has a keen interest in urban design, ‘place making’ and delivering attractive, sustainable projects.
Michael still remains very much at the coalface and is actively and directly involved with all aspects of design with a particular preference for representing ideas through freehand sketches.
