Part II Architectural Assistant
Nik rejoined Caroe Architecture after completing his Master of Architecture at the University of Sheffield, after previously spending the latter part of his Part I experience with the Cambridge team.
Throughout his education he has engaged with heritage-related topics through a series of design projects at Sheffield, his TU Delft Erasmus study period, and through academic writing. His Master’s dissertation investigated contested heritage in post-socialist Bulgaria and has been published in the independent Kajet journal issue no.3: On Struggle.
His enthusiasm for working with architectural heritage was sparked when he worked for two conservation practices in Cambridge following his Bachelor’s degree. He recognised the value that can be derived by celebrating the existing and complementing it with new thoughtful and respectful interventions. He is a keen proponent of modern and recent heritage and hopes to continue his endeavours to learn more about, practice and promote the reuse of heritage buildings both at home and abroad.
Nik was awarded joint first place in the 2019 SPAB Philip Webb Award for his masters project proposing the reuse of an abandoned textile mill in Halifax as a sustainable energy and education centre.
