Am I right in thinking it isn't the best idea to wire feeds to switch in one room then to the light fitting in another in a domestic new build

you could have a run of conventional lights using 3 pate at lights, but a room with downlights on same circuit could be loop at switch to make the above ceiling wiring simpler..

I'd vote for do what suits. Not the end of the world if they're done differently.
don't mention suits. they are the bane of our lives, always interfering, think they know it all, when their knowledge only comes out of a computer, or a "meeting".

Quite offten a method used by Clarkson Evans when I worked there.
T&E from CU to first light then 3core to the switch the T&E to the next room light then 3core to switch etc.

Using this way meant that you got a permanent live & neutral at the light & switch. Here's a quick drawing to show, CPC's have ommitted.

I didn't have an issue with the long hours, hard work, quick pace or the in-house EAL training. Had other concerns.
I meant nothing wrong with it with regard to the 2 types of lighting wiring not with regard to your employer!
