Lee joined WS as an Associate and was appointed a Director in April 2015. Lee heads up the Architectural Team and has overall responsibility for the architectural output of the Practice.

Lee studied Architecture at the Universities of Sheffield and Newcastle before heading to London to pursue his career and settling in Croydon in 1998. He became a Registered and Chartered Architect in 1999, having already gained job running experience on various private housing, social housing, healthcare, and pharmaceutical research projects.

He spent a further 4 years in private practice in Croydon, which saw him specialise in housing. In 2003, Lee joined a Purley based, regional development company as their in-house Architect, progressing to Head of Architecture & Planning and Technical Director, responsible for delivery of both planning and technical consent for 250 units per year. During that time, he developed expertise in Renewable Energy and building to high levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
