Priit Jurimae joins us as our newest Architect, bringing project experience from his work for architectural practices in Portugal and Estonia. His recent experience was working as project lead on a digitally focused primary school in Exeter, driving the scheme from concept through to construction. We asked Priit for some words:
"Joining Rio is the start of a thrilling new chapter. Rio have developed an enviable portfolio of work with a great client base in Cardiff - looking forward to not only contributing to the high standard of the practice's work but also giving back to my own local community through some of the exciting changes that are taking place across the city. Belonging to Rio's talented, innovative team is a great opportunity and I am sure I will learn a lot on the way".
Abraham Castillo becomes our newest architectural technologist. Graduating from Cardiff Metropolitan University in 2018 he has worked on projects in east Africa within the public, residential and commercial building sectors. Abraham said:
"I had the opportunity to experience Rio Architects during a studio open day visit while in my second year of University. Impressed by the multicultural office and the friendliness of the staff during our visit, I am delighted to have the opportunity to further my skills and apply my creativity within this team. My goal has always been to work in an innovative and imaginative architectural practice such as Rio Architects. I am therefore very much looking forward to getting stuck in and helping the team deliver the next projects".
