Anna has a background in Conservation and retains a keen interest in historic buildings. She previously worked for Hirst Conservation where she was involved in the restoration of Dyffryn House, Cardiff Castle and The Houses of Parliament and completed a RIBA Conservation Course in 2013.
Anna joined us in 2016 after gaining her Professional Diploma in Architecture at The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design where she was awarded the Social Entrepreneurship faculty prize. During her time at The Cass, Anna led a building workshop to design and build a house in rural Ghana following her finalist entry to an architecture competition, with a concept that combined traditional earthen walls with recycled plastic screens.
Since joining us, Anna has worked on a range residential, refurbishment, arts and community projects. These include the transformation of an art-deco ABC Cinema into a new performing arts centre for Village Underground, the restoration of a Grade II listed shop for The Great Frog in Soho and a demountable timber community food market and hydroponic farm in Ilford, East London.
Anna is a member of Architects Climate Action Network, a group of individuals within architecture and related built environment professions taking action to address the twin crises of climate and ecological breakdown. Anna is also part of our ‘Circular Economy Task Force’, working to review past and present projects and keep the practice up to date with the latest circular economy thinking.
