Job Title: Trainee Architectural Technologist
When did you join Morrison Design? April 2023
How did you get into architecture?
I’ve always been interested in complex buildings such as skyscrapers – I’m fascinated with how they’re built and the engineering behind each building. I did a two point drawing of a house in a Graphics lesson at school and immediately realised I’d found my passion.
What are you currently working on?
I’m working on the refurbishment of Buxton Dome – a University of Derby project – and the Sloane Club in London which is an exclusive members club.
Which project are you most proud of?
The Sloane Club project – I recently created and submitted 3D visuals to the interior architects and had great feedback which is rewarding. I’m working with Les who is a hugely experienced architect and I’ve learnt a lot from him. It’s my first hospitality project and I’m really enjoying it.
What do you love most about your job?
I am a visual thinker. Creating visuals allows me to explore and develop my design ideas in a more tangible and realistic way. By visualizing my concepts, I can evaluate the spatial relationships, proportions, materials, and lighting of a design. It helps me analyse the aesthetics, functionality, and overall impact of my architectural creations.
What’s it like to work at Morrison Design?
It’s really friendly, welcoming and such a comfortable working environment. I’ve not been here long but I’ve found that there’s a lot of trust between the team, including newer team members like myself, which is hugely appreciated. I’ve just completed a charity trek with many of the team which was a brilliant way to get to know people a bit better.
Why should clients choose to work with Morrison Design?
There’s always a friendly face to speak to – they’re an extremely approachable bunch of people. Our work is really creative and we’re passionate about what we do.
