Mick discusses the Hux Shard project.

As leader of the design team my role has been to harness the skills and experience of the members and use them to shape and mould the embryonic concept into an exciting, innovative, yet highly functional building of outstanding architectural merit. I truly enjoy working with the team and client to transform our dreams and aspirations into reality.

One of the most exciting and interesting factors of the Hux Shard design for me is the process that turned the simple concept of a sculpture in the landscape into a dwelling of outstanding architectural merit and innovation; all with a unique sense of fun and intrigue.
