Luke Willett– Exploring the hearts and minds of the individuals in Team GT3!

Describe a typical GT3 working day in the life of Luke.
My working day has changed slightly in the past year. Instead of my cycle to work, it’s a walk around the block. Instead of a lively and active studio, it’s a small spare room. Instead of meetings and site visits, it’s a lot of video calls. The type of work that I do though has stayed consistently inconsistent in that no two days are the same. I’m often working on multiple projects across work stages which keeps things interesting!

What inspired you to become an Architect?
It’s cliché but I wanted to be an Architect from a young age. I loved making things as a kid (including lots of mess) and I was good at maths. My Grandad suggested I become an architect and it stuck. I wouldn’t say I’m still good at maths, but I definitely still make a lot of mess!

How would you describe the culture of GT3?
It’s collaborative, supportive, and fun! Everyone has a voice and everyone is willing to listen, help and advise on anything project related big or small. The lunch table is where the serious debates happen though!

What trends do you feel are important in Architecture/Design at the moment?
It’s not so much a trend as such but I think it will be interesting to see how cities evolve if people and companies embrace remote working as a viable long-term option. Adaptable and flexible design will be important as we begin to understand how people want to live and work in the future.

What do you love the most about being an Architect?
The turtlenecks.

Tell us your favourite thing to do outside of work…
I like to spend as much time as possible outside, whether its walking, running or cycling. I love a good drink and I can’t wait to get back in the pub with my friends.
