Placement Architecture Student 2018

Placement architecture student 2018; Architecture; student; 2018; O2i Design; summer placement; architect

Every year we take an architecture student for placement.  We welcome our latest architecture student who joined us in June 2018 for a 3-month summer placement. A talented and enthusiastic Architectural student is gaining valuable work experience. We hope that they will enjoy this opportunity to use their design and communications skills whilst working in a stimulating environment.

It is invariably a pleasure to have students with us. What they lack in experience, they frequently make up with enthusiasm and energy. We love our collaborations with them. Students perceive things differently. They share our passion for sustainable architecture. It is refreshing to have a new pair of eyes on a scheme.

This year our student is a first-year student from the Department of Architecture, Design and Interiors from Falmouth University.

Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine – February 2018 issue

A sustainable listed barn conversion on the Somerset Levels by the creative O2i Design Ltd - dining room

We love the February 2018 issue of Homebuilding & Renovating magazine.  It features a barn conversion project close to our hearts – a personal one – Our own self-build project.

Every architect and designer should know what it feels like to be the client.  All the stress and excitement involved in a project that you are sinking your life’s savings into! We experienced everything first hand. We kept to our tight budget and timescale (even when the bats had very different ideas about delaying the build) and learned some valuable lessons along the way. Today we can share those lessons learnt with our clients.

You can read more about the project here.

All of us at O2i Design would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

We wanted to say “thank you” to our amazing customers. We have worked on some fabulous projects that we have worked on this year. Designing a new home or getting involved with a building project can be an emotional journey. We have been privileged to share this journey with some wonderful organisations, companies, individuals and their families.

In 2017, we designed, gained statutory approvals, oversaw and project managed works on a great many building projects, conversions, extensions, renovations and new buildings across the West Country.  Amongst the many projects were 2 public house, a chapel and a cluster of retirement homes! Our clients have been individuals, families, commercial clients, community projects and local councils (including Glastonbury, Street and Langport).  We continue to love what we do at the heart of Langport and thank all our customers for making it possible. Thank you.
