Mosedale Gillatt are pleased to welcome our newest member of staff Becky Smith. Becky has joined us as a Part I Architectural Assistant for her second year out and has already settled into the team well. Becky is working on a variety of projects from feasibility through to work on site and we hope that the experience she gets here will support her well in her architectural career.
Why Mosedale Gillatt?
I was particularly drawn to Mosedale Gillatt due to the clear community drive that is obvious in much of the work produced; There is a real emphasis on the detail in a design which is the pinnacle of a great piece of architecture. I am looking forward to working on existing schemes as there are many constraints to those projects, making the design a challenge which I find enjoyable.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
When I was a child I would have said I wanted to be a Crime Scene Detective, but that’s primarily because I idolised Caroline Quentin in Blue Murder; and was naïve enough to think the job role would be exactly like a TV Crime Drama.
My real love for Architecture arose as I begin to travel to more exotic places with my family in my early teens, with my key memory being St Petersburg in Russia, which I then realised how much of an impact great buildings can have on a city. I’ve also always had a real clichéd love for Lego and having a nosey around new housing development show homes.
Do you have any hobbies?
I’m a lover of independent coffee shops and artisan bakeries, so spend many weekends trying out new venues.
In the summer I like to spend weekends camping when possible, ideally somewhere near a small village with one local pub and zero phone signal for absolute authenticity.
