Job Role: Associate Architect
About: Paul has been with DLA since completing his studies at Newcastle University in 2009, completing his part three exams to register as an Architect in early 2014. During his time at DLA, Paul has worked on the design and delivery of a range of projects, including a large leisure and retail development in South Ruislip, and is currently on site with a large extension for Leeds Arts University.
My Favourite Project: Of the projects at DLA, the refurbishment of the Grade 2* listed St Paul’s House opposite the Leeds office was particularly rewarding.
In his spare time Paul is a keen kayaker and does voluntary work for Amnesty International.
Favourite Design / Building:
His favourite buildings include the Ball Eastaway house by Glen Murcutt, and Camden Mews by Edward Cullinan, projects in which the materials used are cheap, but the quality of space and the dwellings relationship to their setting shines through.
