Sarah is interested in the design process and the inclusion of users into the production of architecture.
During her time at the University of Sheffield she worked with a community group who were attempting to reshape a derelict site in a former industrial area of the city as part of her dissertation, for which she received a commendation. This developed into a thesis study concerned with access to education and the role of the community in creating place. The management process was carefully thought out, considering how the architect could act a facilitator and collaborate with a number of stakeholders.
Sarah has an ongoing involvement in a programme to encourage students from deprived backgrounds to access Higher Education.
