Architect & Passivhaus Designer
George has enjoyed being the project architect for St Luke's – Britain’s first BREEAM Excellent primary school in Wolverhampton, and subsequently led the team for the Blakenhall Neighbourhood Centre on the adjacent site.
George was a project architect on Architype’s third Passivhaus school in Swillington, Leeds. As a keen mountain biker, George was well suited as the project architect on a Forestry Commission Wales’ Visitor Centre project at Coed y Brenin, using innovative timber construction from homegrown timber. Other projects include a number of private houses, feasibilities and recently the development of Archihaus prefabricated Passivhaus dwelling models. George has a particular interest in Passivhaus design, methods of construction and sustainability.
In his home country of Slovakia, George graduated from the Slovak Technical University in Bratislava in 2002. Following his move to UK, George worked for a smaller architectural practice, gaining experience of the construction industry. He fully qualified in 2006, and joined Architype.
George has delivered a number of talks on the combination of achieving Passivhaus in timber construction at conferences on a national scale and abroad.
