who are we

Paul Hunt

Paul studied Architecture at the Universities of Nottingham, Leeds Metropolitan and Huddersfield, graduating in 1999.  He spent two years working in Malaysia which widened his experience of environmental design and the interface between a building and its context.

Paul joined Julian Owen Associates in 2001, where he later became a director, with responsibility for business promotion, staff development and new client consultations.  He specialised in guiding clients through the often daunting build process, from Planning and Building Regulations applications, to overseeing construction on site.

Outside of work, Paul has an interest in self-build and has previously converted a disused Baptist Chapel to create his own home.  He is now refurbishing a derelict farmhouse, using off-grid technologies.  This practical knowledge has informed his work and given a better understanding of the build process.  He is also a keen walker, cyclist and has taken part in a number of triathlons.
