Three new RIBA Part II Students Join our Creative Collective

We are delighted to welcome three new RIBA Part II Architectural Assistants to our Practice:

Eleanor Kemp
Eleanor joined Austin-Smith:Lord’s Liverpool studio in August, having studied at Liverpool John Moores University. Before she joined us, Eleanor spent the summer working as a researcher at the same University, developing sustainable refurbishment research that focuses on the needs of cultural institutions within Liverpool.

Omkar Deshmankar
Omkar also joined us in August, and is based in our Glasgow studio. He completed his Architecture Degree at the University of Pune in India, and his Masters at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. Omkar is passionate about nature and the environment, and loves travelling, hillwalking and photography.

Abbi Wallace
Abbi studied at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, before joining Austin-Smith:Lord at the end of August. Our one-studio approach enabled Abbi to relocate from Glasgow to Cardiff, where she is now based.

Executive Director, Martin Roe commented, “We are delighted to welcome Eleanor, Omkar and Abbi to the Austin-Smith:Lord team. Our upcoming Annual Staff Conference in Liverpool will be an ideal event for them to meet all of their colleagues in person and an early opportunity for them to influence the future shape of the practice as we focus this year on Telling Stories……
