Sarah studied at Bath University and Oxford Brookes, where she specialised in regeneration and was awarded the Fielding Dodd Prize for Excellence. Sarah worked at a number of practices in Birmingham during her studies before joining Panter Hudspith Architects in London in 2007 where she is now an Associate.
Sarah has worked on a wide variety of projects from smaller refurbishments to large scale mixed-use sites and housing. Her first large project was the RIBA competition-winning scheme for a large mixed-use development site in Tunbridge Wells. Following that Sarah worked on delivering three residential buildings and associated landscaping as part of the Athletes Village for the London 2012 Olympics.
In 2013 Sarah completed an extensive refurbishment of a Grade II* listed Georgian manor house and orangery in Somerset to a high end residential specification and followed this with the conversion and extension of a Victorian church and school house into an art house cinema, bar and restaurant in East Dulwich, South East London. This was part of a suite of projects which named the practice Architect of the Year 2016 for Sports and Leisure.
Sarah’s current projects include the redevelopment of Shrewsbury Dana, a Grade II listed Georgian and Victorian walled former prison site into a mixed use development and the redevelopment of the Grade II* listed Wedgwood Institute in Stoke-on- Trent into a workplace hub.
Sarah is a visiting critic at Oxford Brookes University for the postgraduate Architecture course and has recently been involved in the RIBA’s Architecture Ambassadors programme for schools outreach. Hailing from the Midlands originally Sarah is excited to be getting involved once more in local projects through the Black Country Garden City Panel.
