Stefan started his professional life in London as a commercial interior designer (with a speciality in airport and leisure projects) with more than one award-winning interior to his name. After moving to North Norfolk in the mid 90’s he honed his heritage skills as a Design and Conservation officer during 10 years at Waveney District Council and then spent a year in Cumbria with the North of England Civic Trust as a Conservation Planning Coordinator.

Stefan now works as a historic built environment consultant offering design and conservation advice primarily on historic buildings, in a technical capacity as well as research. He also advises on the development of community-based projects with a heritage theme, taking these through funding and delivery stages.
