In 2005 Genevieve graduated in Interior Architecture at the Farnham University of Creative Arts. Whilst studying she worked part time for several local architects to develop my CAD skills and put me ahead of my peers once I had graduated. For two years I worked as an Interior designer specialising in the office, retail and leisure sector. She then changed paths to focus on residential architecture. Within a year she had established a good reputation as an architectural technician which lead to being head hunted four times. Eventually she accepted a role as a technical coordinator for Redrow Homes.
This opened up many avenues and contacts for the future. Sadly in 2008 she was made redundant but straight away I was offered a position as a cad technician at MCA working on high end residential houses. It was my last and best employer that helped her over the last 7 years establish her own business, pass on leads and support me in becoming a Chartered Architectural Technologist. She is now an Assessor and Secretary for the South East Region of CIAT (her Professional Board).
Prior to starting Lewis Visuals she gained experience in both architecture and interior design for the retail, commercial and residential industry.
The projects range from Pizza Express, Commercial Interiors and a “Grand Design” project and have covered 150 residential units in a single development to one off luxury 9000 sq ft residential dwellings. Having learnt the twin disciplines of interior design and architecture, she has been able to appreciate the external aesthetic quality of architecture, but also how internal surroundings benefit a person’s lifestyle.
