Alice joined Lawray in July 2020 as a RIBA Part 2 Architectural Assistant after receiving an BA (Hons) degree in Architecture and a Masters of Architecture (MArch) with Distinction, from Liverpool John Moores University.
Art, design and graphics are her greatest passion which has stemmed from her mathematical and creative background predominantly through pattern, light, form, and connectivity. Her architectural ambitions are to create healthy spaces which are not only desirable and resilient but efficient, sustainable and user friendly for all occupants.
She believes that the integration of architecture with its local community and surrounding landscape is especially valuable, as this can enhance social relationships, subtly connect with historic significance, and can be incorporated with biophilic design, creating many health and wellbeing benefits. Her enthusiasm for design is evident from her portfolio, with her comprehensive design project being shortlisted for the RIBA Bronze Presidents Medal in 2017.
She considers herself to be enthusiastic, conscientious, and a committed team participant who enjoys problem solving and contributing her creative skills throughout all stages of design, paying particular attention to detail.
Her training has included a work placement at a Conservation Practice where she developed drawings for a variety of valued buildings across the UK, involving sensitive sites, listed buildings and admired places. She also took part in a RIBA Conservation School training course at the Manchester Town Hall. She has more recently played a key role in the delivery of projects across a wide range of sectors including commercial, blue light, and residential, assisting her to develop her skills and work towards accreditation and registration as a RIBA chartered architect.
In her spare time Alice enjoys travel, sports, and being outdoors and is enthusiastic about staying fit and healthy. Her interests outside of work include art, craft and photography.
