I am an advocate of inclusivity and equal opportunities for all, both in my designs and in day-to-day life. I believe that a cooperative working environment is essential for empowering all to work together efficiently and effectively. My ethos for future practice is based on these principles, focusing on ways to improve the sustainability standards of cities and towns in the East Anglia. I am very interested in exploring Passivhaus and BREEAM as guides in our collective and professional effort to address and respond to climate change.

My final thesis project Mobility Hub presents a model of rethinking togetherness, via reconsidering built and non-built elements in the urban fabric in terms of mobilities, boundaries and use. It is situated in the city of Cambridge and focuses on the architectural possibilities offered by mundane spaces such as carparks and vehicle storage towards shaping key boundaries in districts or neighborouhoods.
