Manuel, half Spanish and half American, studied architecture at the University of Portsmouth, where he was awarded the ‘2015 RIBA Overall Prize’. He then went on to further his master studies at the University of Westminster. Joining Granit in 2017 having previously worked for practices in Central London, he has worked on several significant new build developments sites across London, experiencing all stages of residential projects. He is currently gaining first-hand site experience prior to starting his Part lll degree in the next year. His interest lies particularly in working on private residential projects and gains a huge amount of reward through creating spaces in which someone can call their home. Heavily influenced by minimalism and modern Mediterranean architecture has been a key theme throughout his design ethos. His eye for detail and focus on purity in design drives his design approach. Manuel is our instagram guru, juggling Granit’s account, his own account of his travels worldwide and his beloved dog Lemon.
