HUGH GIBBS Architectural Assistant

Email: hughgibbs1@gmail.com Current Stage: MArch - 1st year completed Availability: 24th July – 14th September 2018 (9 Weeks) Location: Manchester, UK

Over the last few years I have found the study of architecture, and work in practice, both challenging and immensely enjoyable. As a part I architectural assistant I have worked in two architectural practices that both focused on high-end residential design. While at Rodic Davidson Architects, I gained a high level of responsibility for small projects, as well as opportunities for design input. I am currently studying at Manchester School of Architecture. During my first year I explored sustainably focused design in two major projects on the themes of house & home, and retrofitting buildings. During this masters I have broadened my understanding of the impacts of architecture and improved my technical knowledge on construction.

CONTEMPORARY CRAFT CENTRE Manchester School of Architecture Tutors: Colin Pugh, Amy Hanley Collaborators: Architect Holly Spilsbury from Purcell Architects Year: 2018 Location: Redcar, UK My main studio project in MArch Architecture year 1 was the renovation of a grade II* listed house in Redcar. The building is in a derelict state, within a town with economic and social challenges since the steel work factory (and main source of jobs) closed in 2015. We worked closely with collaborators at Purcell Architects to explore opportunities to save the important building as well as provide betterment to the area. Through research I developed a brief of a Contemporary Craft Centre - a place that could enable education in advanced and future technologies to reinvent the job opportunities of the town, while adding a much needed cultural and artistic venue. Improvements to the Grade II* Listed building, to enable the programme and accessibility, includes a contemporary extension built from white brick to contrast the rest of the building, and a central lift core to solve the problems of circulation and split levels. The project also includes a workshop built with a glue-laminated timber structure, positioned within the trees of the gardens. There was an emphasis on technology and understanding of construction in this module. I created construction details and phasing diagrams, as well as end of life and operational strategies for the design.

MUSEUM OF WORLD CULTURES University of Liverpool Tutor: Dr Torsten Schmiedeknecht, Year: 2015 Location: Frankfurt, Germany My final project in undergraduate architecture was to design a new museum building for the Museum of World Cultures in central Frankfurt. The museum will hold objects mainly from Germanys colonial past. Similar to the United Kingdom, the question of restitution and who owns these objects need to be considered. It is the view of the client that the ability for everyone to come and see these artefacts is the best way. From this I developed a theme of openness to design a place to enjoy, learn and reflect from these objects and the actions of the past.

LIVERPOOL DEGREE SHOW Project Lead: Hugh Gibbs, Nathan Cowley Project Team: Marcus Yeomans, Matt Bevan, Gustaf Jackson, Dorian Starte, Matt Rawlins Location: Liverpool Year: 2015 I was the representative and a lead designer for our studio degree show. We designed a modular timber frame wall to our hang drawings on that would also act as a corridor to channel people into the exhibition. Building a project at 1:1 presented a range of unexpected challenges from the sourcing of materials, to managing a team. Overall it was a lot of fun working together to overcoming the problems and a great hands-on learning experience.

OFFICE DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION Architects: Rodić Davidson Architects Project Team: Project Architect – Bed Davidson Architectural Assistant – Hugh Gibbs Location: London Year: 2016 I had a lead role transforming a small existing commercial unit into a highly designed new architectural office for the practice. I produced detail design drawings and designed the multi-functional display boxes. As the new office was next door I was involved almost daily in the project, liaising between the contractor and the directors of Rodic Davidson Architects. I gain invaluable experience how to communicate to contractors and about the role of the architect on site. Also included in the construction of the new office was the design of display boxes. Based on an initial concept from my director I produced the detail design drawings and liaised with a carpenter in their construction. The design included lighting and electrics that were hidden within the design of the display.

EXTENSION TO ARTS & CRAFTS HOUSE Architects: Rodić Davidson Architects Engineers: Fothergill Consulting Engineers Client: Private Project Team: Project Architect – Andrew Watson, Architectural Assistant – Hugh Gibbs Location: London Year: 2016 During my time working at Rodic Davidson Architects I was involved a project to add a large rear extension to an Arts & Crafts style house in London. The project enabled the house to better serve the needs of a family home, and allow ample light into the property. I was involved from the early design stages through to assisting on a detail design package. Working with the project architect and the engineers enabled me to improve me skills at design and detailing.
