Brief: To design an Urban Hip Hop centre for the development of professional artists. The project is based in the heart of Lille, creating an exciting and unfamiliar backdrop. Through my concept I plan to tackle the social split in Lille and create a building that invites users from every part of the city to partake and develop their skills in the many aspects of the Hip Hop culture. This has involved the splitting of the building into two, grouping the uses of Hip Hop specific and nonspecific but encouraging visual and physical interaction between the two sides. This was to allow each side to have their own space and their own expressions, yet allow them to communicate there ideas and work together to create shows and final pieces of art work.

Brief: To create a master plan for the redevelopment of a brown field site in Margate, into a housing complex, as a group. From this we were to select a plot and design modular housing. Currently Margate is undergoing changes from a seaside resort to a commuter town and cultural hub. Due to this my design theme was to have a building that could change with Margate. Due to this my design involves a structural metal grid with infilling panels, which can easily be removed or put in, allowing for the internal use of the building to be adaptable. The graded facade is designed to hide the changes to the buildings internal use, but still allow a view out and light in.

Year: 2nd (2011) Location: Folkestone, Kent Grade: 2:1 Brief: To design a heritage centre to promote the heritage, memory and identity of Folkestone, a once popular holiday resort and gateway to Europe. The building was to include an exhibition space, auditorium, cafe and restaurant. My buildings main focus was to emphasise to visitors the “gateway� Folkestone had once been to Europe.

Year: 2nd (2011) Grade: 1st Brief: Using 3DS Max and Photoshop visualise a space within the Adapt and Extend project in both the day and night. For this I chose the restaurant as it allowed me to spend time on a larger number of objects to increase my 3D modelling skills. We were also asked to create a computer model detail of a construction joint within our design. For this detail I decided to create the connection between the extension and the existing building meet. For this module I gained the highest mark in the year.

Location: Canterbury, Kent Grade: 1st Brief: To redesign an under utilised area of land, in the centre of Canterbury, into another garden for the city, with particular focus on creating an interesting route from the coach park, in the North, to the city centre, in the South. We were also asked to design a gallery and cafe for the promotion of “green� energy. In my project the focus was to create a park that would allow people to escape the city around it, through creating a landscape to encourage the imagination, transporting people to another place.

The End of Year Show Year: 3rd (2013) Location: Kent School of Architecture The final project I took part in at Kent University was to curate and design The End of Year Show. I was a member of a core group of five 3rd year’s who were asked to use the new digital crit space to create an exhibition for the 3rd year’s work. As a digital exhibition had not been undertaken before it required a lot of team work, experimentation and exploring of new technologies, as well as a few late nights. We felt the final show was received enthusiastically by the visitors as well as our peer’s, leaving a solid foot hold on which subsequent years could build.


Current Work, b3 architects b3 architects is a small architecture practice based in Colchester, which has a focus in medium scale residential and commercial projects. I am currently involved in the drawing and updating of plans, the building of sketchup models and the creation of presentation documents. This image is my own work.


Project Name: Pembridge Road, Notting Hill London When I joined the team the decision had been made to place 6 high end town houses on the London site. One of the first jobs I was ask to do was to help in the preparation of documents for pre application meetings and meeting with The Pembridge Road Society. With the feed back from these meetings I helped with the development of the design. My main involvement on this project, which is still on going, is the creation of the Design and Access statement.


Project Name: Airways House This project was the first I was solely working on with only a small amount of supervision from my more experienced colleagues. The project was the conversion of an office block into residential flats, through permitted development. From sketched plans of the changes to be made to the building I was asked to develop them, confirm they complied with the Mayor of London’s Standards and create a proposal for the client and the quantity surveyor.

Current

Proposed

• All windows to be replaced • Brick facade modifications to provide appropriate fenestration to the residential accommodation • Entrance of the residential accommodation to be renovated • Existing hard landscaping to be removed and replaced with paviors and soft landscape as proposed on site plan

The massing of the building has been developed to obscure the carpark and Octagon from North Station Road. This helps to improve the image of the road as well as to ensure that the buildings do not have a degrading visual effect on the development.

One of the main projects I have been working on is the design for a 56 bed boutique hotel, restaurant and bar. The hotel is directly between the main station and the town centre, making it a prime urban location.

Though I was not leading this project I was heavily involved in the development process and the creation of pre application documents and finally the Design and Access statement. This has given me a real insight into the discussions with the planners and the conflicting interests and directions that each party had for the building. It was necessary for me to add my input to the design and my interpretation to what the planners were asking of us.

Project Name: Haybridge Basin, Maldon, Essex The brief was to come up with a scheme to convert half a boat yard into a viable housing project. The scheme was for a developer interested in buying the site, but needed to be assured he would get planning permission for a profitable scheme. From some rough sketches given to me I was asked to draw up the project, establish that the designs worked and were developable, and present it to a standard that a pre application could be made. This was one of the first projects I have followed from the beginning and have, apart from my boss, been the sole worker on. These are just a few examples of the work I have been doing at my current practice, selected to show the variety of work I have been doing.

Education University of Kent, Canterbury BA (Hons) Architecture - Upper 2:1 (2010 - 2013) As well as providing me with a thorough grounding in the skills required in Architecture my degree studies have also taught me how to analytically assess projects and to conceptualise ideas. I am naturally good at verbal reasoning and my work has developed my presentation and communication skills. Always hard working, the structure of my course has helped me define my approach to time management and prioritisation. Colchester Sixth Form Collage (2008 - 2010) A Levels: Photography Geology Art Physics AS Levels: Pure Mathematics and Mechanics D Colchester High School (2003 - 2008) 10 GCSE’s Grades A-C including English, Maths, Art, Electronics, Geography and Sciences.

Work Experience Architectural Assistant, b3 architects llp, Colchester - October 2013 - present I am currently working as an architectural assistant in a small and relativly new company, of where a mumber of specific design tasks have been deligated for my specific attention. Office Assistant, Rafael Viñoly Architects, London - Summer 2012 and Summer 2011 This role involved computer work, such as the updating of drawings and computer models, as well as some design work, model building and a substantial amount of printing, on a number of different projects. It also required commitment to the office regime and a team approach to getting the job done. Swimming teacher, First Strokes, Colchester - 2008 – 2010 This part-time role involved me in teaching children aged 4-8 to learn to swim unaided. Swimming teacher, Colchester Swimming Club - 2006 – 2010 This job was voluntary; I help my local club by teaching a class of swimmers. This helped me develop coaching skills as well as forward thinking, though lesson plans. School work experience, Stanley and Bragg Architects, Colchester - 2006 This first opportunity to work within an architectural practice inspired my choice of A-level subjects and gave me an insight into a career in architecture.

Additional Skills and Interests I have a keen interest in swimming and have been both Captain and President of the University team, where I have led a committee in organising competition events, training sessions and socials. The club has successfully achieved a number of its goals in my time and membership has grown consistently. I have achieved my Duke of Edinburgh Gold award. This allowed me to improve my team player skills and required significant self-motivation. When I get a chance I enjoy touring cities and taking adventure holidays involving surfing, kayaking and mountain biking. Other interests are listening to music, playing the drums, reading and visiting the gym.
