Stuart joined Hawkins\Brown as a Part 2 Architect having graduated from the University of Nottingham.
His thesis project, Ruinous Heterotopia, investigated the relationship between space and cultural development, looking to empower Berlin’s subcultural groups in the redevelopment of the ruinous Kreuzberg-Friedrichshain Spree area. For this project, he was awarded the Purcell Architects Adaptive Reuse and Contextual Design award.
Stuart is passionately interested in the social and humanitarian role of Architecture, joining a team of volunteers during his undergraduate studies to construct a nursery school in the Limpopo region of South Africa, before leading a student society associated with the architectural charity Article 25.
Away from work Stuart is a keen traveller, so far reaching Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia and Australia where he lived for six months. He is currently planning a road tour of North America where he hopes to indulge his other passion, hunting for soul vinyl.
