Welcome to our new employee, Euan Gray, a brilliant young architect aiming to get his part III with us. Euan's career has been varied & hands on including this yoga studio (pictured above) which he designed and self built
as owner of the wildhutte design company.
Euan's experience and personal research into hutting
ties in with our interests and I hope Euan will push on our research in that field.
