A warm welcome to JRA’s newest team members
— 12 Feb 2020
Here at Jonathan Rhind Architects, we are delighted to welcome two new team members, who have started in the last couple of months.
In the Barnstaple office, we welcome Architectural Assistant, Tina Botsi who joins us from Athens where she worked as a freelance Architect and project manager, having completed her architectural studies at the University of Crete.
She was inspired to work in Conservation Architecture by the combination of considered contemporary design and methods alongside the conservation of living history. This manifested itself in Tina’s most recent project, in which she remodelled and refurbished an Athenian house built in the 1920s.
Tina would ultimately like to qualify to build Passivhaus low to zero energy buildings and her interest in Conservation Architecture and sustainability in general is a response to this.
Tina has now received her Architects Registration Board (ARB) registration for practicing in the UK, and we are delighted to welcome her to the team.
In the Taunton office, Georgia Hendy joins us an Architectural Assistant having completed her Part 1 Architectural studies at the University of Plymouth.
Georgia’s interest in Conservation Architecture stems from her surroundings growing up in the Georgian city of Bath and on visits to her grandparents in rural southern France with its landscape of derelict farmhouses.
She has a keen eye for detail and is interested in longevity of design and environmentally sustainable practices.
We are delighted that Georgia has joined us and she has dived straight in – working on technical drawings for a barn conversion as well as building regulation drawings and submission of planning applications.
Tina’s and Georgia’s web profiles will be coming soon. See the rest of our team profiles here.
