Marta is a Senior Conservation Architectural Technologist and Designer, graduated from Burgos University with a BSc (Hons) in Architectural Technology and a MSc in Conservation of Buildings at Anglia Ruskin University. She is also a member of CIAT, Chartered Institute of Architectural
It was on her first job as a building inspector where she became intrigued by the fabric of old buildings. Since then she has gained over 20 years of experience in Architecture, Design, Construction and Conservation. The last 7 years at KPT have provided her an ample and wealthy knowledge of the requirements and idiosyncrasies of working with listed buildings and conservation projects of all sizes; ecclesiastical and domestic.
Two of her projects are a reflection of her versatility; the internal re-ordering of the prominent Grade I Church of St Mary, Saffron Walden. At St Mary’s she designed and oversaw the creation of beautiful bespoke joinery, which brought much needed facilities to the Church. Awarded “Highly Commended Design Award” by the Dioceses of Chelmsford. And the reinstatement of a 1933 vernacular façade of “calicanto” (round stone masonry set in lime mortar) of a farmhouse in northern Spain.
Eager to get “hands-on” in conservation she joins other volunteers on SPAB Working Parties. She finds time to do antique furniture restoration! And she has a book on mid C20 Spanish rural vernacular buildings in the making …
Marta attended and completed The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Building Conservation and Advanced Building Conservation Courses.
