Historic Building Architecture gains new talent
— 31 Oct 2022
The Somerset studio have been delighted to welcome two new starters to the team in the last couple of months. Part I Architectural Assistant Evangeline Barrow and Architect Simon Horler joined the practice at the end of the summer and are embracing life at Jonathan Rhind Architects.
Eve joined the practice having graduated from the University of Nottingham with a first-class degree. During her time studying, Eve was particularly interested in sustainability, materiality, atmosphere, and integration with existing environment. These are reflected in her thesis project ‘Turning Tides’, an ocean sustainability and community regeneration project based around the regeneration of the ex-mining village of Horden on the Durham coast. Since starting at Jonathan Rhind Architects, Eve has been working on perspective sketches for an extension to an old estate worker’s cottage in the Somerset countryside, as well as concept designs for the repair and conversion of a coach house on an estate in Exmoor.
After graduating, Simon Horler worked in Windsor for several years before moving to the Somerset countryside. Joining Jonathan Rhind Architects has enabled Simon to pursue his interest in historic buildings and to learn more about their care and conservation. Simon has extensive experience in 3D modelling, renders and 3D printing to create visualisations for clients, and since starting at the practice he has created 3D renders of the Woolsery Manor House Hotel to show how the contemporary timber, glass and copper reception pavilion will interact with the original Grade II listed manor. Outside of work, Simon is a keen photographer, and enjoys spending time outdoors.
