My fascination with architecture started very young; I was just ten when my family did a knockdown rebuild of our little one-bedroom beach shack. Experiencing this transformation firsthand, a place we called home, into a luxurious modern duplex. My mum was very involved and invested in this process, knowing exactly how she wanted the outcome to be, she drove the meetings with the architect and local builder. To see the results of her efforts and the joy it brought her, to the eventual sale of the other unit, close to what we built the entire place for, absolutely puzzled my young mind, I was hooked! Ever since then, I have wanted to become an architect and bring client’s dreams to life, just like they did ours.
What’s next for Harry? I am planning to study master’s part-time at Griffith University in QLD, and am looking to work in either Brisbane or Gold Coast in early 2024. This year I really enjoyed a 6-month internship at Filardo Ercan Architects, I learned so much there and it left me with a very positive outlook on the industry. I have much more to learn and am really excited for the next steps on this journey.
