Jake Barrow, Architectural Designer...
BA ARCH, PG DIP ARCH
Hi, I’m Jake Barrow, I am a UK trained Architectural Designer with both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Architecture. I have over 5 years industry experience at varying stages of the design process across a number of sectors. Having relocated to Australia in 2014 I have acclimatised to the industry processes working on a contract basis for a number of Architecture and Design practices.
My expertise lies in conceptual development, home planning, local authority legislation and project management, I take on work ranging from initial design consultation through to complex planning applications, project coordination and interior design schemes.
A designer at heart, my passion is for architecture and the urban environment. I take pride in my methodical approach to design, seeking pragmatic and robust solutions in response to our evolving and often conflicting demands. Through diverse roles in the UK, as well as in both Vietnam, Spain and now Australia, I have been able to combine a flexible approach to individual client requirements and unique legislative constraints with a strong interest in graphic presentation and a keen eye for robust reporting.
Now settled in Melbourne, I am currently pursuing overseas assessment by the AACA in view to becoming eligible to begin the Architectural Practice Exam process in 2017. I am excited to take my career to the next level and hope to join a dynamic team within which I can contribute and develop.
