I am currently working at PRP based in Barbican with my focus within the residential sector.
Having worked at PRP for nearly 4 years I have gained invaluable experience working on master planning, residential and mixed use design. My core focus within architecture has been housing.
I have keen interest in social housing and how this impacts the occupants and society around us and the key role architects play. Thought my studies I have learnt how influential architecture is on society and how good architecture improves society.
I think our attitudes towards housing in Britain are in need of change. With an ever changing landscape, an ever growing population we have a social responsibility to society to positively change our housing. The focus of my studies have considered social and affordable housing my dissertation looked at how social housing effects life chances with my final design project looking at how we can reduce the demand on resources but still create good quality affordable housing for those in need most.
