Paul HuntAssociate Director
Paul completed his architectural education at the Universities of Cambridge and London Metropolitan, and was shortlisted for the RIBA Bronze Medal. He joined Hopkins in 2007, and since then has gained a breadth of experience in a number of sectors, including sport, workplace and sustainable design.
He was as a key member of the design team for the BREEAM 'Outstanding' Living Planet Centre for WWF-UK from concept through to completion. His role during the construction phase was that of architectural design coordinator, overseeing the coordination of the design with contractor-appointed trades.
Paul has worked on several large scale projects, including Brent Civic Centre, which achieved a BREEAM 'Outstanding' rating and is currently the greenest public building in the nation. He was part of the team for Roman Wall House on Vine Street in the City of London, and Hurlingham Retail Park on the bank of the River Thames.
Paul's sport experience includes the spectator strategy and seating design for the 50,000-seat Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, India, which was built for the 2010 World Cup. He also oversaw the complexities of the design and coordination of the roof and structure at Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, a 55,000-seat ground in Pune located in a seismic zone.
More recently, Paul's work has focused on the education sector. He was part of the winning team for Milton Keynes University, and is currently working on a new Humanities building for the University of Oxford.
