Following a Diploma degree at The Bartlett School of Architecture, Emma first joined the practice in 1988. She rejoined in 2000 after completing a PhD at the University of Bath. Emma is a Project Architect with particular experience in interior planning and architecture, with an emphasis on the implementation of DDA in building projects and a flair for design at both the conceptual and detailed design stages. 


Notable projects at the practice include Bracken House in The City of London, Glyndebourne Opera House, the Gibbs Building at 215 Euston Road and the refurbishment of 183 for The Wellcome Trust. In 2008, Emma was responsible for the feasibility study and refurbishment proposals for the Mound Stand at Lord's Cricket Ground; an upgrade of hospitality and catering functions and an opportunity to increase the seating capacity of the stand.


Following Emma’s involvement at Lords, Emma contributed to our ‘One Stop Shop’ projects, namely Hackney Service Centre of 2009 and Brent Civic Centre of 2013, which achieved  BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ respectively.


As a key member of the project team on the multi-award winning UCLH Macmillan Cancer Centre, Emma co-ordinated the design detail and delivery of the bronze façade. More recently, Emma was responsible for the detailed design and on site execution of The Residence, a high-end housing development in West Hampstead consisting of 79 market tenure and 12 affordable units completed in 2016.


Emma successfully managed all aspects of the detailed design and delivery of a new stand-alone meeting room for the London office. She continues to be involved in a range of premises related projects including the addition of a link bridge between two mezzanine areas, a renewal of the lighting scheme, and general ongoing improvement and refurbishment works.
