Position: Chairman

Bio

As a Chairman of OBMI and a specialist in resort design, Tim remains driven by the art of architecture, but his approach is defined by a vision backed by discipline and process. He has been instrumental in developing OBMI’s approach to design, one that is dominated by analysis of the culture and environmental influences of a site set alongside the economic drivers for the project, the tripartite of truly sustainable design.

His expertise in design for sensitive environments allows him to act as a trusted advisor to visionary developers and premier hospitality brands worldwide. His portfolio includes leading project teams and designs for luxury resorts, boutique hotels, bespoke residences, and vibrant resort communities in emerging and leading destinations. Understanding design should act as a catalyst for showcasing context, culture, and community; he promotes architecture as a vehicle for connection – a way to create life-changing experiences that transcend design and material.
