Work, hobbies and interests from an architect in the making -

MArch Year 1 Final Project: The Gibside Masterplan 

1:100 Sectional Models of ‘The Hydropathic Retreat’ housed with the ruin of Gibside House, Gateshead.

Humbledon Hill Housing Project 

Our first project into the MArch program, an ex-student, now qualified Architect from Northumbria University approached our head of year with an idea. Recently purchasing a plot of land large enough for several bespoke houses, he suggested that we [MArch students] design these. The finished designs are now with him for discussion with the Local Authority, who are very positive about the whole idea!

Here is the result of my project.
