Areas of Expertise

As part of the architectural team I focus on community led housing and meanwhile use. Previously completed my MArchD at Oxford Brookes University with a specialisation in Development and Emergency Practice. My final year thesis focused on an architectural response to countering consumerism through the circular economy principles of repair, reuse and recycle. This work was featured in the RIBA ‘Industrialised’ exhibition at Portland Place in London in 2019. Prior to my masters I worked for Krook & Tjäder, one of Sweden’s largest architecture firms, and I focused on large timber construction projects including residential developments and design competitions, I also grew proficient in the Swedish language.

I completed my BA at Newcastle University and subsequently worked for Northpoint Architects, a small multi-disciplinary architecture practice, in which I worked on projects within the health, residential, commercial and education sector. I have also worked on several residential projects with West Oxford Architects. My experience of working in small & large architecture studios has allowed me to grow transferable skills to work on projects of varying scales and complexities.
