As an Architectural Graduate at Respond, Samuel supports our Architects on a wide range of projects.
Prior to joining Respond, he worked at a smaller practice where he was involved in many aspects of architecture – from design, renderings and animation to documentation, meeting with clients, attending council meetings and working with consultants. Previous projects include a large multi-residential development in Wellington, high end residential projects in Queensland and Brisbane, and small subdivision projects, extensions and alterations in Auckland and Wellington.
Samuel’s can-do attitude and willingness to take responsibility for tasks from start to finish make him a valuable member of the team. He believes architecture is a lifelong learning process, and as such is always keen to learn more and quick to pick up new skills. He is a confident ArchiCAD and Twinmotion user and is adept at drawing buildings by hand.
A very visual person, Samuel is interested in the aesthetic and psychological impact of architecture. He sees architecture as the epitome of art in built form, and believes it has the ability to shape and change society for the better. In his spare time Samuel is an illustrator, music producer and surfer – all of which provide inspiration for his design.
