MArch. MA Hons.
Gabriela joined HTA as a Part II Architectural Assistant in November 2016, and has primarily worked on the planning and production stages of Greenford Green since beginning. Whilst working closely with her team in Edinburgh on the development of Greenford Block 5, Gabriela has enjoyed developing and implementing her BIM software knowledge. She has also worked in collaboration with the HTA London office on various projects, assisting with Olympic Way and Parkhouse Street through conceptual and planning stages.
Prior to joining HTA, Gabriela has been involved with a number of projects overseas, based in Chile, Ghana and the Netherlands.
During her undergraduate studies at Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, Gabriela worked as an intern in Amsterdam, where she was involved in a series of residential homes for people with dementia, where she researched and utilised dementia friendly design principles.
Before beginning her postgraduate studies, she gained valuable experience in an additional year in practice, working at a small Edinburgh based practice specialising in hotel design, specifically on projects based in Ghana.
In her final postgraduate year at the University of Strathclyde she studied for 3 months in Chile as part of a university exchange programme. In collaboration with a colleague, her research focused on the shortage of fresh water in arid climates, which was concluded through the proposal of a combined water, agricultural, and recreational network in the Atacama desert. The project was awarded the nationwide RIAS Sustainability Award in 2016, and the Glasgow City Council Eimear Kelt Medal for the best student project in the graduating year.
