About me

During my time at UCLan, I have developed a keen interest in adaptive reuse and sustainability of the built environment, hopefully being able to follow this route in my future career.

Upon completing my Master’s Degree in Architecture from UCLan, I am now entering the architectural industry in hopes of exploring my passion for design, conservation, and sustainability within architecture.

In addition to my studies, I work part-time as a Part-Time Sales Assistant, as well as carried out a few months of work experience drawing up existing and proposed plans, sections, and elevations using surveys and proposals taken of the existing property.

As for my personal interests- I spend most of my time training at the gym or going on long walks. I love to take photographs and travel to different places.

Schoonheid In De Gebroken is an adaptive reuse project, in which an existing building within Rotterdam ‘Santos Warehouse’ has been redeveloped with the aim of retaining much of the existing detail and form of the building, whilst also adding new elements both internally and externally. The project’s aim was to create a place within Rotterdam where people could come together to learn, create and teach in makerspaces, allowing for knowledge to be shared and developed with one another. A series of adaptive reuse research and development was collated during this project to achieve harmony between the new and existing elements.
