Jaime Fernández – Jimmy
Completed bachelor degree in Architecture in 2007 graduating from University Camilo José Cela in Madrid (Spain)
I trained as an architect in Madrid whilst working alongside my father in his architectural firm. I learned the complexity of managing an architectural business from the initial design stages to the completion of the build. Once I had graduated I lead a team of eight architects within the firm. As a non-specialized practice, my team was involved in projects ranging from industrial to residential, single family homes to large apartment buildings as well as urban master plans throughout Spain.
In 2010, I set up my own refurbishment business in Madrid before moving to the UK in 2014. Before taking on the challenge of restoring Dinton Folly, I converted an Old Baptist Church Hall into a beautiful four bedroom home.
My work involves the creative and pragmatic reuse of traditional and historic buildings, offering specialist independent advice on sustainable conservation.
