Tess first joined Hawkins\Brown as a Part I assistant, working on a wide range of projects including the refurbishment of a 1930s warehouse in central London to provide a workshop and shop for Drakes luxury menswear manufacturer and a new pedestrian bridge at East Croydon Station.
Since re-joining Hawkins\Brown after completing her Masters, she has worked on a variety of infrastructure-related projects. Tess is currently delivering the architectural design on site for Tottenham Court Road Station Upgrade, a major redevelopment of the central London station for London Underground. She is also project architect for the refurbishment of Bromley-by-Bow Station in East London, a project which aims to provide step free access and an improved ticket hall to the existing station at the same time as creating a new landmark in the local community.
Tess has experience in working in multi-disciplinary teams and coordinating and delivering the architectural design in both design and construction stages. She has expertise in designing for the London Underground network. Tess is also a key member of Hawkins\Brown’s Analogue Studio, which promotes hand-drawing and sketching as an important tool for communication and design development.
Tess completed both her degree and Part II Masters in Architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, graduating with a Distinction. For her masters project she investigated and developed a strategy to improve the currently unsustainable and parasitic relationship between the cruise industry and the city, culminating in a large-scale masterplan to revolutionise the cruise industry in Copenhagen.
Tess draws, paints and prints in her spare time. She has held several successful exhibitions in and around her hometown of Cambridge and is now selling her work in London.
