Over the course my employment Echo Architecture, I have worked on Stages C and D of a 72-storey Mixed-use Skyscraper in Riyadh, KSA, a 250,000 sq.m. Retail Development in Milan, Italy, in both occasions focused on the design and development of the superstructure, along with VT, MEP and Structural coorindation with the project consultants. In addition to my responsibilities on these projects, I was responsible for developing the fit-out design for our new offices, to suit the expansion of the company up to 120 strong staff.
Between 2014-2015, I was employed at Wilkinson Eyre Architects in London, where I worked on prestigious projects such as the Crown Sydney Resort and the Dyson Headquarter Expansion. My work on the Crown Resort was focused on 24 Levels of the Hotel and VIP Gaming sections of the building, coordinating with consultants on structure, services, hydraulics, wind and landscaping, preparing drawings and tender packages, 3D modeling and visualization. On Dyson, I produced drawings, visuals and reports for the refurbishment of Dyson D3+D4, to accompany the planning submission and RIBA Stage 2 report. In addition, I produced a number of construction issue drawings for Stages 3 and 4 for the ancillary Sports Facility adjacent to the Dyson HQ building, as well as the Cafe and R&D Facility.
In parallel to my MA studies in Creative & Cultural Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths, University of London, I was employed by ROOMS (a furniture retail store with a design department that facilitates the custom design of kitchens, bookcases and wardrobes) on a third party basis to initially coordinate, and subsequently to Project Manage a renovation of an existing property in London. The project was a complete refurbishment down to structural walls, changing everything from flooring, wardrobes, lighting, furniture, sanitary ware, kitchen, to the transformation of the garage to a cinema room.
