The firm was excited to employ two new members of staff towards the end of 2018, one all the way from Agrigento, Sicily! Giovanni Agro is an Italian architect, following in the footsteps of both his Father and his Uncle, who helped shape his passion for modern design. Giovanni has been a significant presence since, recently moving into the Bridgnorth High Street after visiting London for just 4 hours and deciding it wasn’t for him. He is settling well into the local town, exploring the local walks up the cliffs and through the woods that Bridgnorth has to offer, stating he loves the town “because it is so beautiful”. The JDP office are thoroughly enjoying having Giovanni as part of the team, expanding their Italian vocabulary day by day, whilst appreciating having a more diverse working environment. Mubs Ahmed joined JDP in November having recently completed has Part 1 qualification, he is showing great creative flair and technical ability and is keen to learn more working alongside the rest of the office.
