Welcome To Our First New Starters Of 2023
Morrow + lorraine architects are delighted to introduce the new talented team members we have recently welcomed to the company.
As a recent graduate of The Bartlett, Aaron brings a wealth of knowledge and fresh ideas to the office.
Aaron’s thesis project was an Almshouse retrofit of a pub in Faversham. His ability to transform the space into a community-oriented hub highlights his talent for negotiation and his dedication to addressing societal issues. We are thrilled to have someone with such a strong sense of purpose and passion joining our team.
Aaron has a keen interest in phenomenology, following the works of Peter Karl, and Dalibor Vesely, and an eagerness to challenge established architectural narratives. His dissertation, “Othering the Informal,” exemplifies his innovative and original thinking by exploring the intersection of historical and contemporary references.
Outside of the office, Aaron has a passion for sports, including football, cycling, and running.
We are thrilled that Aaron is looking forward to working on place-making projects, including public realm schemes and historic urban regeneration. Our practice specialises in creating sustainable, innovative, and inspiring spaces, which sit well with Aaron’s ambitions.
We are excited to collaborate with Aaron on future projects and to see the fresh perspectives and unique insights he will bring to our team. Welcome to Morrow + Lorraine Architects, Aaron!
Thabi is a talented Part 2 architectural assistant from South Africa, who recently completed her studies at the Bartlett School of Architecture. Her project, “The Promised Land,” focused on the experiences of African migrants and how they navigate their way within urban environments like the UK. Her ability to think creatively and empathetically impressed us, and we believe she will make an excellent addition to our team.
Thabiso has expressed a strong interest in gaining built experience and qualifying as a well-rounded architect who can marry the interiors and exteriors of buildings, an area we particularly enjoy at Morrow + Lorraine. In addition to her passion for architecture, Thabiso also has a love for the gym and weightlifting.
At Morrow + Lorraine, we aim to build a team that reflects the vibrant community in which we work. We welcome her wholeheartedly and look forward to supporting her in her journey toward becoming a successful architect.
Jay is a recent graduate from the University of Sheffield, where he designed a retrofit scheme for the Baroque style Corn Exchange building in Newark-on-Trent, a building that sits within his town centre regenerative masterplan. The project consisted of violin-making exhibition spaces and repair workshops, as well as a music performance foyer, which defined the building as a new destination along River Trent. Jay had upgraded the existing building envelope, utilized the existing structure, and reconfigured interior spaces to create engaging spaces for an updated, stimulating visitor experience.
In his projects, Jay enjoys reinventing and optimising spatial designs that work more effectively to bring social impact. An interrogative approach that stems from his sociology foundation course.
Outside of work, he loves exploring cities and observing the built environment through photography.
At Morrow + Lorraine, Jay is eager to learn new skills and contribute his expertise to our projects while working through the RIBA stages. Jay is passionate about sustainability in architecture and enjoys working collaboratively with design teams.
We are excited to have Jay join our team, and we look forward to working with him.
