Meet the team: Georgia
February 22, 2022
Nothing we do would be possible without our very wonderful team. They really are the heart, soul and everything else of spacelab_. So, to help you get to know them all a bit better, we’ve been doing a series of meet the team posts, and next up is Georgia.
Georgia first joined us for a week’s work experience five years ago, and she was such an all round superstar we just knew we had to have her back. Fast forward to last summer, and having just graduated with a first class degree in Interior Architecture and Design, we finally got her back for good. Inspiringly creative and endlessly determined, there’s no problem, project or task that Georgia won’t give her absolute all to. And this, coupled with her kind heart, calm soul and general hilarity, is why she’s so loved by us all.
We asked Georgia a few questions to help you all get to know her a bit better.
What inspires you?
People who are passionate about what they do and want to reflect this in the built environment around them.
What would your ideal project be?
Working on projects that have sustainability at the forefront of the design, and for clients that actively want to be greener in the way they work. Also, clients that want to be bold and take risks in the way they want their space to be, rather than sticking to the norm and playing it safe.
What are you working on right now?
I am currently working on a small workplace design for an advertising agency, pulling them away from a corporate way of working and moving instead towards being fun and free, reflecting who they are as a company.
I am also working on adding an in-house photography studio into a large fashion brand's HQ, making their workflow better by housing everything within the same building.
If you could change one thing within the industry what would it be?
Universities and degrees preparing their students better for the real world, ensuring they have the skills required in the industry currently. Technology for example - a lot of universities focus on programmes that just aren't used in the industry, which puts graduates at a disadvantage when it comes to finding a job.
What is one thing that you’ve enjoyed about lockdown that you want to take with you going forward?
Having and making the extra time to be able to do things that I enjoy doing, like going to the gym more and being able to read a good book.
What’s your favourite thing about the lab_?
Being a part of such a fun creative team who push each other to be more daring and bolder in our designs.
