Ana has 6+ years of experience in off-site residential working closely with developers and their team on high profile projects. She has been involved in successfully negotiating planning consent on a number of complex and award winning schemes across London, liaising with planning authorities and stakeholder groups. In addition to her experience of off-site schemes, her portfolio includes developments within historic context areas and regeneration bids.
Having worked on medium and large scale projects on all design stages, from successful planning applications to production drawings and site stages, Ana engaged closely with the client team from early stages to ensure the scheme is successfully delivered. Ana’s skills include exceptional concept design and presentation skills coupled with an expertise in offsite technology and planning processes.
Her experience includes mixed use schemes as well as student residential, build-to-rent and co-living buildings. Key student residential projects include Apex House, the 29-storeys student building on the Wembley skyline, Savoy Circus scheme located within a complex historic area in Hammersmith and Fulham and Holloway Road.
Ana was Project Architect for Ten Degrees, the pair of 44 & 36 storey PRS towers next to East Croydon station, delivered in 2020 using offsite technology and providing 546 homes designed for rental, with generous shared amenity spaces. Ana led the design and worked collaboratively with the design team through design development, planning and delivery stages.
At the moment, Ana is leading the College Road co-living project which comprises of 817 homes and 120 affordable residential units over two towers at 50 and 35 storeys tall, to be delivered at the end of summer 2023. Through generous, carefully designed communal spaces, this building provides ample social and co-working spaces. This is one of the World’s largest Co-Living schemes, setting a precedent for this asset class.
