Sam Curran

Part 1 Architectural Assistant

Sam graduated from the University of the West of England (UWE) in July 2022, gaining a First Class degree in BSc (Hons) Architecture, to which he joined LHC shortly after.

Passionate about the innovative re-use and sustainability of historical buildings, Sam’s dissertation analysed how ‘changing the use’ of listed buildings could potentially compromise our built heritage.

For his final year design project, Sam designed a renewable Garden Centre and Composting facility, which aimed to address the ‘Production and Consumption’ issues within the UK’s Food Industry. Focusing on localised regeneration, Sam intended to engage the public by adopting Frank Lloyd Wright’s ‘learning by doing’, where people could provide their food waste and in return, grow their own produce.

In previous years, Sam has gained various experience working within the Architectural industry, and after moving back to Devon upon completion of his studies, he now enjoys spending time with friends, family, and settling back into practice. Sam intends to start his Part 2 RIBA qualification in due course, and eventually continue to qualify as an Architect.
