Architectural Graduate, Harry Platt, enjoys breaking through pre-conceived notions and constructs to create designs which contribute to sustainable environments and communities.
Why and what are we building? Those are the questions Harry Platt asks of himself, his colleagues, and his clients before embarking on the design of an exciting new project. He believes those questions, more so than ‘how are we building’, are important to achieving sustainable design.
Inherently creative – Harry’s side hustle is as a glorified hobbyist musician – Harry finds inspiration and seeks ideas for his designs in a multitude of environments. Some stem from intellectual non-fiction tomes he’s persevering through; others from indulging ridiculous ideas in conversation with mates.
A graduate of Victoria University of Wellington’s School of Architecture, Harry brings an extensive portfolio of digital skills to Chow:Hill’s Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau studio, including Revit, Photoshop, InDesign and rendering. He also enjoys crafting design the old school way… with physical modelling, hand drawing and sketching.
