Ulster University architecture student wins prize and post
An Ulster University architecture student has won an award from one of Northern Ireland’s leading practices.
Hamilton Architects has named second-year student Bradley Lynch as ‘most promising young designer’ — and offered him a job at the end of his studies.
Judges from the firm were impressed by his design for a satellite community theatre for Belfast’s Lyric Theatre.
The firm, with offices in Belfast, Londonderry and London, recently won contracts worth £30m and said that it was actively searching for talented young professionals.
Partner Seamus McCloskey said: “Bradley’s entry was an excellent design project, sensitively handled and well presented.
“The design demonstrated an understanding of how to bring internal space and volume together to accommodate a large number of spaces and user groups into a relatively small building.”
