Ana joined HTA in London in February 2014 as a 3D Visualiser and transitioned to working as an Architectural Assistant Part 2 in the beginning of 2016. Ana became a qualified Architect after graduating Part 3 of the course in January 2017.
Ana graduated from the University of Architecture and Urbanism “Ion Mincu” in Bucharest in 2012, after a one year Erasmus scholarship in Barcelona, Spain. Part of her experience was a job placement in Reykjavik, Iceland, where she worked with Batteriid Arkitektur. One of the projects she was part of was the Thrihnukagigur crater intervention for the “Inside the volcano” competition that won 1st place and that she subsequently developed for her final Masters Degree project, for which she was awarded a distinction.
Ana has 3 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 building proposals within historic context areas and regeneration bids.
Ana worked on some of the Practice’s most significant projects at different stages, from successful planning applications to production drawings, always seeking to engage closely with the client team from early stages to ensure the scheme is successfully delivered.
Her experience includes mixed use schemes as well as high-rise student residential and build-to-rent buildings. Ana worked on several offsite projects including Apex House, the award winning 29 storeys student building on the Wembley skyline, from design to completion and also on the Savoy Circus scheme located within a complex historic area in Hammersmith and Fulham. She was also involved in competition proposals including Barratt/AJ Home of the Future.
Currently Ana is the Project Architect for George Street, a pair of 44 & 36 storey residential towers next to East Croydon station, built using offsite technology. The scheme provides 546 homes which have been designed for rental and include shared amenity spaces. The scheme is set to be the tallest modular tower in the world and will be delivered by May 2020. Ana is leading the design and has worked collaboratively with the client’s extended team through design development, planning and post planning stages.
Ana’s skills include exceptional concept design and presentation skills coupled with an expertise in offsite technology and planning processes.
