About Me

Afiif Hossenabaccus

Hi, my name is Afiif Hossenbaccus. I believe I have acquired an excellent set of skills and up-to-date knowledge to succeed in a career as a professional Landscape Architect.

During my time at University I have gained significant experiences in sustainability, design while conserving the environment and using a wide range of computer applications to plan, design and manage open spaces. One particular example of where I have put this into practice, includes constructing a detailed management plan of Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park, London. On a much larger scale, I was involved in a multidisciplinary team project for developing an information booklet for Lee Valley Park, covering Canning Town to Hertfordshire, UK. Being a landscape architect student, my role was to analyse and create an historical overview of figure ground maps within 50 year intervals.

As part of my professional development at Tim Moya Associates, I was tasked with understanding and implementing Building Information Modelling (BIM) processes using Revit architecture, combined with Auto-CAD. Consequently, this has helped to improve the company’s workflow process standards.

Outside of UK, travelling to Sweden has also been a highlight of my landscaping career, having discovered and reported on their diverse culture for the management and preservation of Europe’s largest cemetery. Additionally, during an expedition to Barcelona, I worked as part of a team to provide detailed cross-section plans and measurements of known landmarks such as Diaganal Mar Park and Rambla De Mar.

In summary, here are some facts about me:

An eager and committed individual with great communication skills.

A dedicated team leader as well as an effective team member.

Manage projects with a number of tasks concurrently, under strict deadlines and within tight budget.

Always eager to learn new skills.

Competent using Adobe Photoshop, InDesign & Illustrator, AutoCAD and Microsoft applications.

Successfully create and develop a series of design proposals to meet specifications and objectives.

Good knowledge and skills on digital landscapes and model making.

A firm grasp on the importance of understanding sustainability and the reuse and recycling of materials.

A report examining Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park, Surrey and suggestion of a comprehensive management plan to aide the longevity of the site. View extract of report here.

City: Portfolio & Personal Plan (2.2)

Final year University portfolio project focussing on improving and developing ideas for Plashet Park in East London. Rigorous analysis and problem solving took place before coming up with a proposal. The proposal consisted of opening up the Park onto the road to reduce urban congestion and creating a wedding-theme setting in the Park, by taking advantage of an pre-existing registry office.

City Sights: Illustrated Critical and Contextual Study (1st)

Final year dissertation topic on Sustainable Landscape: The Reuse of Materials in Landscape Architecture. An investigation into the different ways in which materials can be made sustainable through reuse and analysing its effect on the environment.

Field: Lee Valley Park Master Plan (2.1)

The aim of this project was to explore and analyse Lee Valley Park which stretches from Herts to Canning Town. In the master plan, I had implemented several ways for the park to become more accessible for the surrounding community. Other areas of the park were also designed to form part of the free-for-public-use outdoor recreation facilities, including skate parks, pump tracks, climbing walls and an outdoor diving board.
