Laura is a Senior Architectural Assistant with architecture and urban design experience in the UK and internationally.

In 2012, Laura relocated to our Shanghai studio to work on international masterplanning projects and support Charrette processes run by the practice, including the competition winning Hangzhou Future City project, Luzhou Wine City in Sichuan province, and a new town centre on Changzhi Island in Zhoushan.

Returning to London in 2014, her focus has moved on to UK residential-led and mixed use schemes, including leading the design of Stag Hill, a new residential quarter at Guildford Cathedral.

Laura studied architecture at the University of Notre Dame in the USA, with her thesis project focussing on the redevelopment of the North Industrial District in Los Angeles using pre-fabricated modular homes and vertically stacked clean-tech factories. Since graduation she has also been involved in the restoration and extension of several listed buildings, working from initial design concept through to completion on site.
