Specialising in one-off private residential houses, Adam honed his skills in detailing and coordinating the delivery of modern contemporary houses. He also had the opportunity to work on other various projects such as mixed use developments, schools and healthcare. 

Working in a handful of practices that specialised in modern, ecological and sustainable buildings, Adam moved on to Design Engine.

Daniel Masterman

Daniel started his architectural education at the University of Lincoln before graduating in 2012. He then went on to work in both Copenhagen and London over the following year, spending the majority of his year out experience at Terry Farrell & Partners. Here he worked on the Earls Court Masterplan, acting as a key member of the design team whilst continuing his own professional development.

In 2013, Daniel then went on to study his Masters in Architecture at the Royal College of Art, where his work explored the elasticity of architectural typologies and the way they must adapt to keep pace with developments in a rapidly changing world. Upon graduation from the RCA, Daniel gained a position at ArchitecturePLB which allowed him to work on a wide range of projects. These included working on a new health centre in central Winchester through planning and developing the construction packages of 100 sustainable new build homes which acted as the first phase of the Whitehill Bordon EcoTown Masterplan, to name a few.

Daniel moved to Adam Knibb Architects in August 2016, finding the opportunity to deliver carefully crafted projects whilst preparing to undertake his Part III studies, very exciting.
