Rukhsar Zahid +
Team Leader, Architectural Designer

What do you do at Carless + Adams?
I am responsible for the management of a design team and reporting the progress of each project our group. Most of my time is spent designing care homes in compliance with the client’s brief and working with consultants and the local authority to bring proposals to fruition.

Why did you get into architecture?
I have been motivated to pursue a career in architecture having recognised the impact of good design and the influence it has on our environment and lifestyles. I love that this industry offers the opportunity to break walls as well as build them so people can be better integrated with their surroundings. Being part of something that can create a positive social impact feels rewarding and develops sustainable communities.

What do you do outside of Carless + Adams?
As drawing and experiencing culture are two of my favourite things, my best weekends are spent visiting galleries and at the theatre. Often, I’ll need to distract myself with badminton or chess with my family and friends to avoid compulsively baking.

We’re like architects, only a little bit different. Want to join us? 

Work + Play

Working for Carless + Adams

Every member of the team is crucial to our success and it’s equally vital that they feel respected, appreciated and recognised for the great work they do and above all enjoy their time at work. Our ambition is to make care a positive choice and we won’t achieve that without a positive culture.

We work hard but we work smart as a team and we’re always there for each other. For those with the stamina, we’ll play hard too. There’s always a cheeky get together at the pub on a Friday and every year we host two company events, a summer day out and winter party chosen by the team. And you’ve got to stay healthy too, so you’ll always find fresh fruit in the kitchen.
