    Hi there, I just came across your design entry for the Henrietta competition and as a recent graduate of architecture found it to be very interesting. I was just wondering if you had any other images which I could possibly view, I have only been able to view the one perspective image available on your website.


  2. Hi Niall – thanks for your comments. We found a few extra images which we’ve posted above. Good luck with your future career
