Deb Adams

Senior Project Architect
BKK Architects
<p>Deb is a UK registered architect and joined BKK as a senior project architect in 2016. To date she has been predominately working with institutional clients on a variety of projects. Prior to BKK her first role in Australia was as an Associate at RM Architects (Melbourne) where she was project lead on RMIT’s first on-campus student housing at their Bundoora West campus.</p> <p>With over 10 years of experience in a number of design-led offices, across different scales and typologies, Deb has contributed to a number of award winning schemes in the UK and was also a guest critic at the University of Kent (UK).</p> <p>Through her role as a project leader it provides an opportunity to collaborate with clients, user groups, design teams and contractors and believes that fostering these relationships helps to deliver successful and well resolved outcomes. She also likes to encourage a site specific approach to architecture that relates to its context through detailed research at the outset. She enjoys the design process from beginning to end and sees the potential that architecture has to create positive outcomes for all; good design should, and can be, for everyone.</p> <p>One of Deb’s main areas of interest is sustainable design and she holds the belief that sustainable, well designed and beautiful buildings are possible when environmental factors are considered from inception. Outside of this other interests include BIM, prototyping, as well as developing collaborations with industry and other fields outside of architecture. Whilst at BKK she has contributed to a recent paper for the AASA Project to Practice: Innovating Architecture conference in Sydney and is currently working on another for the AIRAH Building Simulation Conference conference.</p> <p>Deb completed both her degree in Architecture and Masters Degree at the University of Nottingham (UK) and still maintains her UK registration; she is also a member of the Australian Institute of Architects.</p>
