Holly’s passion for art and architecture grew from her home city of Glasgow. Her fascination derives from the tension between the cities’ drumlins and its urban grid. This interest between nature and the ‘man-made’ manifested itself in her thesis, which explored the anthropogenic manipulation of Berlin’s River Spree by the cities’ inhabitants.
Holly has worked for various London practices, having the opportunity to work on projects from concept to completion. She has experience across a wide range of sectors, from bespoke galleries to social housing, seizing all opportunities to broaden her understanding of architecture and its’ interaction with both the built and natural environment.
Most recently she has taken on the role of developing the practice’s residential standards and working with ‘Apt Lab’ to expand the studios understanding of sustainable and environmentally responsible materials.
Holly seems to be perpetually running for the train up to Glasgow on a Friday evening, but when she’s not in the studio or Scotland, you can find her in the boxing ring or mulling around the White Cube gallery.
