Bianca is a qualified Architect, joining the practice in 2021 as an Architectural Assistant. She has been working on a range of residential mixed-tenure and mixed-use projects for a range of public and private sector clients.
Her key focus is designing environments that facilitate inclusive community cohesion, whilst maintaining an innovative and environmentally focussed approach. This ethos of hers was developed in her Part I thesis project, which won her the RIBA East Award. This was illustrated again through a comprehensive thesis design which comprised a mixed-use & social housing development at Pudding Mill Lane Stratford in her Part II Studies, in which she was awarded a distinction for her exploration of sustainable and inclusive communities placing play space at the centre. She is now the Founder of Arqdiary, a platform which outputs bitesize content for architectural stakeholders.
Prior to HTA Bianca has worked in a range of large and small practices, resulting in proficient experience in a range of housing, commercial and mixed-use schemes. Upon joining HTA, she has been applying her seven years of knowledge in BIM and other competitive software packages. She is integral to assisting the practice with outputting a range of packages in RIBA stages 1-5, including planning applications, feasibility packages, developed design packages and technical design reports for construction. Bianca’s background in Art and History has given her the skill of conveying a scheme using her graphical exploration through detailed illustrations demonstrated in Calverley Close.
