Helena completed her Part I at Oxford Brookes and her Part II Masters in Architecture at the Bartlett, UCL, graduating with a distinction.
As part of her Masters project she designed a school of craft where she explored her interests in digital and analogue fabrication and the use of colour in architecture. Helena’s project proposed a re-engagement with craft through the introduction of a 21st century Gothic revival, embodying Ruskin’s attempt to create a better society through craft, manual labour and collaboration. Helena took part in the Bartlett Open Crit event, presenting her work to a prestigious panel of critics including Charles Jencks.
Helena is also passionately interested in education and has mentored secondary school students, encouraging them to consider a career in architecture.
