Our main priority is helping clients make great architecture that serves their needs and responds in a vital way to its context and cultural surroundings. In order to do this and to further the studios own knowledge base we invest in a wide programme of research which enables us to be inventive and to find new and sometimes unexpected solutions to the problems that we are posed.
We work in collaboration with like-minded consultants in order to further our thinking and skill level and since our inception, we have always looked to develope concepts grounded by good research that have a light touch on the planet, are low in carbon and energy-use. We look to our research to help us and our clients mitigate the impact of climate change.

‘Alice is an ambitious architect who is brings her artistic eye to WR-AP as well as her enthusiasm for always putting people at the forefront of the design process’
My main line of architectural curiosity lies with the development of social spaces and resilient homes, and how we can define better and more inclusive places for communities and individuals. This interest has been particularly inspired by the works of 20th Century architects including Neave Brown and Lina Bo Bardi, whose social schemes and joyful interventions inspired many of my projects during my architectural studies.
I undertook both my Bachelors and Masters degrees at the University of Nottingham where I was awarded a first class degree for both qualifications. My final year thesis project, Phenomenology and Dementia (a project exploring social inclusivity within an experiential urban environment) was nominated for the RIBA Silver President’s Medal and Architects’ Journal Student Prize. I qualified as an Architect in October 2021 after completing my Part 3 studies at the University of Westminster.
Following 2 years at Mæ Architects, I joined WR-AP in October 2021, and I am excited to continue nurturing my architectural curiosities as I venture into the next step of my career as an Architect, designing resilient and evocative spaces, places and homes.
I have a very creative eye and particularly enjoy producing compelling visuals – be that digital collaging or intricate hand drawing – to really communicate design decisions and atmospheres. I am also very much a people person, so look forward to building relationships with new people and bringing along my positive and smiley persona along to every project.
I enjoy advocating and learning about pioneering women in architecture and interior design, through books, talks and exhibitions. Most recently I enjoyed a visit to the Design Museum to see Charlotte Perriand: This Modern Life, where I learnt more about her notion that ‘good design is for everyone’.
When I’m not at my desk, I can be found tending to my ever growing house plant collection, or planning my next Theatre trip to the West End.
