Senior Conservation Architect (London)
BA (Hons), March, ARB
Sophie is a Senior Conservation Architect, having worked exclusively in the heritage sector since she graduated from her Masters in Architecture in 2010. She has worked in London on the repair and conservation of some of the city’s most significant buildings and landmarks and has extensive experience assisting clients with funding applications, as well as in her technical role running projects on site.
Sophie was extensively involved with the RICS Project of the Year 2016, Cardigan Castle, a Grade I-listed building and Scheduled Ancient Monument. The site of Wales’ first Eisteddfod in 1176, this large-scale regeneration scheme has been heralded as one of the most significant regeneration projects in Wales’ history.
Here at Heritage Architecture Ltd, Sophie coordinates our architectural portfolio, working on a wide range of properties from managing the most intimate level of sensitive repair works to offering high-level strategic advice on townscape. Work includes project leader for a high-end, single-family dwelling by prolific architect John Nash and, at the other end of the spectrum, a city-centre, contemporary, new-build rooftop extension to a historic property of enormous cultural significance.
In her free time, Sophie has a passion for research, particularly in social history, and accordingly has extensive work published nationally about her architectural research. She was winner of the Norwest Holst Prize and Charles Reilly Medal in 2010, the highest commendation for Masters students in architecture. Her work has been exhibited at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2011) and the RIBA Supermodels Exhibit, (2012).
