Joseph Paget is an architect with an enthusiasm for sustainable design, conservation and the inherent connection between the two fields. He sees opportunities for material re-use and building repair as a means to retain character, memory and minimise waste.
His work in practice draws on earlier experience in London, Bristol and New York. Before joining Useful Studio, Joseph worked at Project Orange as project architect on-site at The Moorings Sociable Club, a playful restoration of a 1970's community centre in Thamesmead.
Joseph learned to design with a sensitivity towards buildings and their context whilst working at Purcell on a new visitor centre to a Grade-I listed chapel and the refurbishment of the Grade-II* listed brutalist Clifton Cathedral. He developed his technical design skills and completed his professional studies in small design-led practices, working on the remodelling of a Brooklyn brownstone house and a range of works to buildings across London for private and professional clients.
