What are you working on now?
I am currently working on two projects. One is Upton Lofts, a 13 units, 4 storey residential building in Newham. It is a traditional build with steel structure and brick facade. The other one is Old Sorting Office, an existing brick building which will be refurbished into a residential development.
What do you love about architecture?
I like to work on a project where I am involved from start to finish. You start with an idea, and it may take you years to work on it. Understandably, whilst it is a slow process, you know one day it will be materialised, and you can walk through what you have created.
What’s the best project you have worked on?
The best project I have worked on so far is the R school in Ireland which I was involved in from the very beginning. I did the sketches myself and saw it through to the end. I learnt a lot working on this project, and I thought it was stunning. It was also shortlisted for the RIBA awards which was an added delight.
