Ulster University architecture student Bradley Lynch has been named as one of Northern Ireland’s most exciting new design talents by a leading architectural firm.

Bradley has received the Hamilton Architects Most Promising Young Designer Award, along with a cash prize and the offer of a job on completion of his studies.

The judges were impressed by the second year student’s design of a satellite community theatre for the Lyric Theatre which was placed in the heart of Belfast’s Shankill Road.

“Bradley’s entry was an excellent design project, sensitively handled and well presented,” said Seamus McCloskey, Partner. “The design demonstrated an understanding of how to bring internal space and volume together to accommodate a large number of spaces and user groups into a relatively small building.

“We were highly impressed by the standard of all the Award entries and hope that, in a small way, we are helping to support the nurturing of young talent that will help put Northern Ireland on the global architectural stage.”

Hamilton Architects, with offices in London, Belfast and Derry~Londonderry, has recently secured over £30m of new contracts and is actively searching for talented young architects to help the business realise key market growth opportunities.


Bradley said: “I am going into my final year at Ulster University knowing that I have already secured my dream job – that gives me all the motivation I need to continue working hard to realise my career ambitions.

“I have always been fascinated by architecture and the role played by the built environment in society and this Award gives me the confidence to develop my design skills and become an architect who brings new ideas to the profession.”
