New starters 2021
Morrow + Lorraine Architects have welcomed new members of the team in 2021. We would like to introduce our talented group below…
Kat is an accomplished and highly-skilled studio manager, bringing 15 years of experience providing comprehensive administration and business support to creative organisations. Having begun her career at a renowned architectural firm in Sydney, Kat’s work has continued to centre around design practices on both sides of the world. When Kat is not working, or corralling her family, you can find her at the local lido enjoying the benefits of cold-water swimming.
Amber is an Architect with experience predominantly in the business space, life sciences and education sectors. She’s also a WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP) with a specialism in wellbeing design of the built environment. Amber’s ambition throughout her architectural education and career is knowing that there is a possibility of having a positive impact on the people that occupy those spaces. She believes that the most successful architecture is that which is contextual and responds best to its local environment and people.
Cristina is an ARB qualified architect originally from the Canary Islands. Before moving to London, she has worked internationally both in Spain and Hong Kong on a range of projects, predominantly in the commercial, hospitality and residential sectors. Her passion for travelling and living abroad started earlier on, and as an Architecture student at the ETSA Las Palmas she participated in almost every exchange programme available, spending a couple of years out in Venice and Santiago de Chile. Since studying the Sustainability Specialty in the IUAV, Venice, Cristina has been focused on exploring the relationship between architecture and context, developing an interest in reuse and refurbishment projects and natural construction techniques. Away from the studio, she enjoys hanging out with friends around food and exploring Shoreditch record shops to build up her vinyl collection.
Janine started her career studying Fine Arts in Sydney, then going on to register as an architect in Australia, where she worked with several large architecture practices, such as Hassell Studio and BatesSmart, including working on private commissions in her own small practice, whilst continuing as an exhibiting artist. She embarked to Europe to work at the Australian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, and then lived and worked in Zurich for 5 years, working in various creative & design roles including façade design for CandioBuettler Architekten. Now in the UK, she has been working mainly in technical roles, and is completing an Msc in Façade Engineering at Bristol.
Will got his undergraduate degree in Geology at Bristol University then switched from student to teacher – teaching maths in a south London secondary school for a few years. With a master’s degree in Climate Science now under his belt, Will has joined the sustainability team at Morrow + Lorraine to help steer the company onto a greener path. In his spare time Will releases music under the pseudonym “Billy Low”. He’s also a keen traveller, with a year in Central America. It probably goes without saying that Will’s favourite aspect of architecture is sustainable design – from reusing old buildings and materials, to rooftop gardens and green walls. Will also has a keen interest in quantifying Morrow + Lorraine’s environmental impact, be it project work or simply the running of the office.
Laura recently joined M+L after completing her Part 2 Masters degree at the University of Westminster. She began her architectural career at the University of Brighton, where she gained a love for designing through making before going on to work at Design Squared Ltd in South London. In her Part 1 experience, Laura worked on high-end residential projects as well as designing bespoke joinery for the practices’ first commercial project, a characterful French bakery in leafy Hampstead. In her spare time, Laura enjoys cooking for friends and exploring new areas of London through its ever-growing food scene. At the beginning of the pandemic, Laura began using her love of cooking as a creative outlet through a food instagram where she shares recipes, restaurant reviews and food-based travel guides.
Welcome to M+L!
