South Somerset District Council have just produced a new free publication entitled “Masters of their Craft”. This lovely publication hits the bookshelves today.
The booklet showcases a wealth of talent across the Somerset Levels. Please do take a look. You will discover beautiful artists, designers, artisans, producers and more, right here on our South Somerset doorsteps. These skilled craftspeople fashion the local natural resources that Somerset is so famous for. A chisel, hammer, paintbrush, needle or voice, they are all here. We love this booklet which features many of our suppliers, colleagues and friends. We’re delighted that O2i Design Ltd gets a mention too.
You can see the publication online here.
Every year an architecture student joins us for a work 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.
Every architect and designer has to start someplace and there is no better place than in a busy practice. This is where you can do a little of everything under the supervision of an experienced designer. Whether you are studying or wish to gain experience over the holidays, internships help launch relationships, initiate opportunities and valuable work experience.
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.
