Jade was instantly drawn to SPACE's ideology that architecture is all about the people and communities who will use it, the experiences they will have, and the memories they will make. This aligns perfectly with her past university projects, as she believes in designing spaces that enhance people's lives and acknowledges that even the smallest details, like the proximity of a desk to a window, can have a significant impact.
Passionate about architecture and its role in society, Jade states,"In today's world, amidst the growing challenges of climate change and the cost of living crisis, it's easy to feel powerless. However, architecture can play a direct role in addressing these issues." Through her work, she hopes to contribute to a better future by designing spaces that promote sustainability, well-being, and social equity.
Both Tinnie and Jade are thrilled to be part of the SPACE graduate program, which includes seminars on building regulations, the RIBA Plan of Work, CDM, and practice management. They will also have the opportunity to attend an intensive Revit training program over several weeks and benefit from broader SPACE development, including the weekly "Thinking Thursday" sessions and ongoing CPD seminars.
Tinnie's and Jade's initial weeks in the office have been a great learning experience, with both feeling supported and gaining valuable insights. Tinnie is eager to learn about project management and will gain these skills through graduate seminars and shadowing senior staff. Jade is enthusiastic about expanding her knowledge as she feels she is learning something new every day. She is excited to gain insights into the behind-the-scenes of the design process and how different aspects come together to create a cohesive and sustainable project.
