Junior Architect

A future in architecture and building design was always something Tim dreamed of (and with the last name Window, it seemed fitting).

Design was a childhood passion of his, from playing with Lego and Meccano as a child, through to art in high school. The ability to create something meaningful really appeals to him and has long been a condition for his deciding on a career.

He studied a Bachelor of Architecture and is on the road to completing his Masters Degree. Tim is an integral part of the JMH Design team and is passionate about seeing his designs come to life.

Tim’s approach to design is exemplary. His ability to take a client brief and execute it effectively and accurately is above and beyond someone of his experience.
