"Craftsmanship and materiality matter deeply to me."
Much of my approach to architecture stems from my interest in art and architectural history, understanding context and designing in a contemporary fashion. As architects and designers in the historic environment our skills and ability is in producing designs that respond to context and setting - craftsmanship and materiality are key to getting this right.
Ella has a broad interest in conservation from conservation history to the nuts and bolts of repair from stonework to concrete.
Ella graduated from Nottingham University in 2019, and joins the practice to focus the development of her career in conservation projects which combine bespoke design with a sympathetic approach to historic contexts. Ella’s passion for conservation began during her Part 1 years experience with BDG architecture and design, London, where she was part of a winning competition team to redevelop a prominent Category B listed building in Edinburgh, a UNESCO world heritage site and conservation area.
