Jessica is an experienced architect specialising in conservation and creative reuse. Her work has included the sensitive refurbishment of a Grade I listed manor house into an internationally significant arts venue, as well as the reinterpretation of a Grade II listed library into a contemporary museum as part of a wider culture-led town centre regeneration. Understanding the challenges of heritage stewardship and informing strategies for the sustainable management of historic buildings and collections are key threads in her work and she is adept at carefully mediating the needs of multiple project stakeholders with the heritage significance of sites. She has a Masters degree in sustainable heritage.
Jessica is currently exploring the role of Building Information Modelling in heritage contexts, and is an active member of the practice’s EDI Forum.
