Ulster University architecture student wins prize and post

By Staff Reporter

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.”
