“Marta has over fifteen years of architectural practice experience, and graduated from Burgos University in Spain with a BSc (Hons) in Architectural Technology. She then worked as a Building Inspector, and this was when she first became involved with Historic Buildings and was intrigued by their fabric.
In 2005, Marta moved to England to explore other architectural and building styles. She has gained a wealth of knowledge of the requirements and idiosyncrasies of working with listed buildings and conservation projects of all sizes; ecclesiastical and domestic sectors, with each project being individual.
Most recently, she has worked on the refurbishment of two C.16th timber framed Hall Farmhouses in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk, and the internal re-ordering of the prominent Grade I Church of St. Mary, Saffron Walden. At St Mary’s she has designed and overseen the creation of beautiful bespoke joinery, which will bring much needed facilities to the Church.
During the last two years Marta has fulfilled her long-held wish to get “hands-on” in conservation, and has joined other volunteers on SPAB Working Parties, where she has taken part in the repair of historic masonry walls.”
