Kirsty grew up and studied in Edinburgh, in the midst of Adam’s Georgian New Town and the medieval Old Town, which has instilled in her a passion for historic buildings and their conservation.
Graduating from Edinburgh College of Art’s, School of Architecture in 2008 with a Masters in Architecture, Kirsty has worked in medium sized practices in Yorkshire and London, on projects which have included residential, ecclesiastical, education, healthcare and community. Having worked in a mixture of localities, she has experience with a variety of architectural vernacular.
Kirsty enjoys working closely with clients to develop their aspirations and ideas to allow historic buildings to fulfil their potential, whilst sensitively adapting, extending and restoring them for modern day living and use. She is keen to use traditional methods of construction as well as modern approaches to achieve high quality design, and appreciates the importance of detailing and the minutiae. Having qualified in 2011, Kirsty is a fully Chartered RIBA Architect and is registered with the ARB.
Kirsty attended and completed The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Building Conservation and Advanced Building Conservation Courses.
