Graham graduated cum laude from University of Pretoria in 2003 BArch and has worked in a number of architect’s offices in South Africa and in the UK. His thesis was entered by the faculty into the Royal Institute of British Architects’ Presidents Medals. He has been fortunate enough to be thrown in at the deep end on a range of projects with previous employers and beyond. With Leon Saven Design (2006-2008) he concentrated on high-end residential work but also spent time managing and detailing commercial projects of various sizes. At Walters and Cohen in London (2005-2006) he was specifically employed to work on conceptual proposals for large public tenders in the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme. After graduation he also spent time working in the office of Design Workshop in Durban (2004-2005) on the International Convention Centre and various high-end residential projects.
Graham is a registered member of the South African Council for the Architectural profession.
Graham’s first love has always been design. He believes that design is mostly a way of thinking that can be applied to just about anything. He especially enjoys detail design and really likes designing products and furniture.
