What is your superpower?
A: Working with people. I like to work with people.
Why you choose Bulgaria?
A: I came here with my fiance some time ago, we bought a house, as many Britons did then. Three years ago I worked with the Spanish architect Eduardo Rifa on a big project in Central Bulgaria, and then I decided to stay here. Three years ago, when my first child was born, it really was the breakpoint in which I said, “Okay, I’m here and that’s what I’m going to do.”
Which is your favorite building in Sofia?
A: I think it’s probably one of the Aries buildings of Cherni Vrah Blvd., which is an office building of SOT 161. It is a very nice building. I think the overall architecture is very well designed and probably my favorite because it’s simple and classy in terms of execution.
A: When we are talking about the local market – if anything is in our capacity to draw on, the way we deliver our projects in every way. I would say that architecture isn’t just about design, it about how you deliver the products. And I would say that we have a lot of experience and maybe we have a little bit of an edge. If you’re talking about internationally, we have a good reputation outside Bulgaria because we bring a significant amount of expertise on the table and we can deliver it in a very cost-effective way because of our office here at local level and prices.
