Architecture, BSc (Hons)

About me

Fit for purpose, for people and for planet. 3 P’s that permeate my architectural designs. I am student who wants to make a difference to the architectural environment through my exciting, biophilic designs that best benefits the people and ecosystems around them.
During my years at UCLan I have learnt and honed skills to help me resolve and realise my designs to their best possible outcomes. Digital rendering, hand modelling and sketching are the traits the most important to me on my journey to becoming an Architect.

My style, designs and character add a pop! of colour, vibrancy, and fun to the work I create, whilst never sacrificing my position for an architecture that is focused on equality and sustainability. Theory and design go hand-in-hand to realising a built environment that can accommodate and elevate people the world over.

The 3 projects of my final year all had a focus on learning for the future.
The Dunes Pavilion, based on the grass of the sand dunes is a room built to facilitate learning to maintain the ecosystem that inspired it.
The primary school project was an exercise in design that inspired children to become more independent throughout school.
The Sands Creative Arts Community Centre is a multigenerational design that looks from the past to create a new future in Southport based on healthy aging through activity, indoor, outdoor, mental and physical. Giving Southport a hub to create and inspire.
