Traditionally trained, Paul Sheridan studied architecture at RMIT in Australia in the 1970s before coming back to the UK, where he graduated with a 1st class honours degree in Interior Design from Nottingham. Paul worked for a number of London based design and architectural practices including Ezra Attia Associates and HLM, working on prestigious accounts as diverse as IBM and The Piccadilly Hotel in London before setting down roots in East Anglia.
Paul spent 20 years as senior architectural and interior designer with Pocknell Studio, an award winning North Essex based multi-disciplinary design practice.
“My interest in Architecture started in Melbourne, Australia and I was fortunate to work under the tutelage of a wonderful architect and designer named Graeme Law. He instructed me in drawing and how to present work and above all in how to communicate with clients.”
I have always enjoyed architectural drawing. It is a bit of a passion and something I encouraged students to practice during my time tutoring Interior Design at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication in London.
Paul specialises in refurbishment, remodelling and conversion work in the residential sector. For the majority of his time with Designer David Pocknell, he worked on the conversion of barns and farm buildings which became a real specialism, with large commissions in the Cotswolds as well as North Essex and as far afield as the Greek island of Kefalonia.
