Projects

Jess joined BAA in 2011. Since then she has worked on many of its notable projects including Chiswell Street and Albert House, with particular experience in the office and hospitality sectors.

Jess is a versatile architect, creative and visual, but with a highly organised and technical approach. She has extensive experience of working with existing buildings including the restoration of a listed hotel on the Isle of Wight, and a transformational office-to-resi scheme in the centre of Oxford.

She is currently working on a façade retention office scheme in Central London, developing an innovative approach to maximise the potential of office buildings to provide both public engagement and revenue generation. 

Jess has a contextual approach to architecture, drawing out the cultural, historical and social aspects of sites. She enjoys the detailed design stage, refining design concepts into tangible details which can give an old building a completely new character.

Jess has long been interested in architectural representation and graphics as a way of communicating ideas about buildings She is adept at a range of software, able to quickly visualise and test her own design ideas, and is part of BAAs in-house rendering team

Prior to joining BAA, Jess worked at SOM in Chicago on a variety of large scale international projects. She also worked as a studio assistant for artist Bridget Riley.

Jess was educated in France and is bi-lingual French-English.
