Technical Director - DipArch BSc(Hons), ARB, RIAS

Originally I chose Architecture because it’s a very creative profession, plus the fact that you could have something that you’ve designed realised in real life. As time progressed, I began to be intrigued by how buildings could affect the way we live, our mood and behaviour.

We spend most of our lives in buildings – through architecture you can influence the way people live their lives for the better. Architecture is a profession that is constantly evolving, whether that’s in response to social trends, environmental change, technological advances or construction techniques. There’s always something new to learn.

As Design and Delivery Lead I hope the share my experience to support talented and motivated people working hard to creating something new and exciting every day.

Associate Architectural Technician - BSc(Hons) Architectural Technology

After leaving Tinto to undertake a role which saw me co-ordinating other people's work rather than hands on drafting, I came to realise how much job satisfaction I got from actually making changes to drawings, figuring out what works and what doesn't, seeing existing buildings go through a transformation and seeing new buildings being created.

The team at Tinto are forward thinking and keen to take on a challenge to suit clients’ needs and requests. When I was approached to rejoin the team, I was given the opportunity to return to doing the job I love.

Associate Interior Designer

A designer is something I was always going to be. Sitting at the kitchen table, dreaming up houses, and sketching layouts is one of my early memories, I was about 10 years old and I was obsessed.

After university and working at my first practice I realised the importance of good design. For me it is about the people who occupy spaces, how they use it how it, how it effects them and how it makes them feel.

As a designer I have the opportunity and privilege to create places that make people happy.

Architect - March Bsc (Hons) RIAS, ARB

I was lucky to fall into studying architecture naturally. As the saying goes that when you enjoy something, it does not feel like work. This is the case with my role at TINTO during the short time I have been here.

I enjoy the process of being able to visualise a design on a site and then bring this to life through 3D modelling and visuals. I also enjoy learning about and the use of advancing technologies/methods that can aid both the 3D modelling side of projects, along with how clients can see their projects come to life through a range of methods including an immersive experience.

I love my job. Sometimes it can be challenging, but I have finally found a role that if people ask what I do, I am proud to say I am an interior designer at TINTO.

I love meeting new clients and hearing how passionate about their projects they are, and in turn this makes me excited to work on their project and I enjoy how Tinto has opened a huge world of learning to me.
