Farhana Jiwa

Architectural Assistant
BA (Arch), MArch/TRP (RIBA Part II and RTPI)

Farhana joined JTP as a Part II Architectural Assistant after completing a dual Masters in Architecture and Town and Regional Planning at The University of Sheffield.

As an aspiring Architect, Farhana is interested in how spaces work to integrate communities and encourage daily activity in cities – from the micro to macro scale. Having grown up in Kenya and lived in various cities, she has developed a passion to enhance people’s quality of life, using architecture as a sustainable tool for change and development. As such, she is particularly keen on context-driven and user-centred design across a range of sectors.

At JTP, Farhana has worked on various projects, from small scale building design to large scale masterplanning. Some of these include The Nicholson’s Quarter in Maidenhead and the Liskeard Cattle Market – which was recognised by the Building Design Architect of the Year Awards 2020 for its social impact.

Beyond architecture, Farhana has a passion for travelling and exploring through photography, cooking and writing.
