Biography

I am an architect and co-Director of Featherstone Young, a practice with expertise in place-making and social engagement. I am interested in how architecture can capture the character and identity of a place and stimulate, rather than dictate, activity and social interaction.

My practice work has won many awards particularly for housing and community projects including RIBA awards for a homeless centre, a crisis centre, artists’ studios and two housing projects in sensitive rural locations. I am a visiting critic and external examiner at various universities and she currently sits on the Islington, Southwark and Camden Design Review panels.

I have been a RIBA and Civic Trust award judge and in recognition of my contribution to both practice and education I was awarded The Atkins Inspire Outstanding Achiever in Architecture. I have spoken and contributed papers at a number of conferences and recently contributed a chapter to The Future of Museum and Gallery Design published by Routledge in 2018.
