MA DipArch (Cantab.) MA (Samara) ARB
Bilingual in English & Russian
Simon trained at Cambridge (BA and DipArch) and qualified in 2007. He joined Nash Baker in Spring 2018, bringing a strong background of residential, cultural and commercial experience with London studios Avanti Architects, Eric Parry Architects and Clive Chapman Architects.
Simon has worked successfully within both traditional and contractor-led models and has built statutory experience in the City of London, Westminster, Tower Hamlets and Richmond.
Early professional experience on the Renewal of St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, Trafalgar Square, set the course for an interest in the conservation and adaptation of historic buildings. Recent roles have included working on the conversion of two significant listed buildings at St Clement’s Hospital, Bow.
Simon enjoyed expanding his horizons living abroad in Russia, undertaking architectural research, studio tutoring and English language teaching. His Russian language thesis on the conservation of Soviet Avant-Garde architecture gained an MA from Samara State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering. He has published articles on this and other subjects in the Architectural Review and Russian journals.
