Tayseer completes her Part 3

I am so thrilled to be able to share the happy news that my colleague and friend, Tayseer Kardash, has successfully passed her Part 3 studies. This is a huge milestone for her as it marks the final step to becoming an official Architect in the UK.

We have known each other for many years now, through university and also working together when we were both at PAD studio. When I set up Studio BAD I was delighted that she agreed to come and join the team, I knew she would be a perfect fit for what I had set out to achieve. Over the many years we have known each other it has been amazing to see her develop and grown, into the confidant and talented architect she is today.

To become an official Architect in the UK takes a lot of dedication. To complete the studies will take at least 7 years, so even with the fairest of winds behind you this can be a long journey. Over Tayseer’s journey she has also had to contended with the pandemic, lockdown, living away from family and job uncertainty. Many of us would have understandably buckled under the weight, but it is a sign of Tayseer strength and persistence to keep going with the biggest smile on her face.

Studio BAD team grows

We have welcomed Tayseer Kardash into the Studio BAD : Architecture team, we are so delighted that she is joining us to assist with the increased portfolio of work we have going forward, also she brings with her a beautiful design aesthetic which fits so well with our ethos.

I was lucky enough to have worked with Tayseer previously, initially when I was teaching her in my third-year studio at the University of Portsmouth and then later when we were both at PAD studio together. I have always been in slight awe of her, she is quite inspirational and I believe she is one of the most courageous and fearless women I have ever met!

Tayseer is an accomplished designer, she has extensive experience working in Sudan and across the UK, having previously worked with PAD studio, Hyde + Hyde Architects and Design Engine Architects she is extremely experienced with forward thinking designs. She has recently completed her Master of Architecture RIBA Part 2 at Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff and is planning to start her Part 3 studies later this year.
