About Us

Meet Julian and see how he can help you make your investments work harder.

Julian is a property developer, investor & renovation specialist who has been working in the industry since 1997. Some of his proudest achievements are renovating hotel rooms in the Ripon Spa Hotel and working on projects for property heavyweight Simon Zutshi.

Julian set up Icon Living to pass on his design expertise after seeing countless developers becoming involved in property renovation with little or no experience. Without the appropriate experience many projects end up over budget, over schedule and often with poor quality finishes throughout, lowering the potential rental yield dramatically.

He passes on his experience and skills via training days, consultancy services and his new, innovative design pack. Anyone, from first-time landlords to letting agents, can follow his tried-and-tested approach to make their investments work harder.

Julian has worked for various investor clients from small portfolio builders to large asset management companies. His own portfolio of work includes numerous student and HMO refurbishments, commercial office space, renovation projects, apartment block furnishing contracts and show home installations for both local and national developers. This vast expertise ensures he is able to help every client, regardless of portfolio size.
