Neil Dusheiko has practised as an architect in South Africa, Sydney and London, working for firms including Walters and Cohen, Allies and Morrison and Maccreanor Lavington.
He has also built a range of private commissions, including the Timber Fin House, shortlisted for the NLA Don’t Move Improve awards 2010 and a houseboat for Yo-Sushi founder Simon Woodroffe, featured in Grand Designs.
