In 2004 he joined forces with David West, an Urban Designer, to create Studio Egret West, a dynamic cross platform workshop where architecture and urban design are not seen as separate skills, but rightfully reunited to create a unique working environment where city and building speak to each other.

He also sits on member advisory boards, such as the the Whitechapel gallery, and is a member of the CABE Design Review Panel. He joined the board of the RIBA Trust.in 2008.
In 2012, the Sunday Times gave Studio Egret West the "Architect of the Year" award.
