My name is Steven Lockhart and I have just recently completed my Masters in Architecture from the University of Strathclyde. Although I was born in Glasgow I chose to go to university at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture in Aberdeen for four years before finishing up my final year at Strathclyde.
I have gained almost two years of experience from living and working in Singapore and have gained not only great experience from the industry but as well broadened my knowledge and understanding of other cultures whilst in South East Asia.
Since completing university my aim is to not only concentrated in architecture but continue my passion for furniture design, photography and branding in my spare time.
