Angela brings international expertise and insight to our Living portfolio after more than two decades in design in the UK, where she was involved in high-profile projects across the hospitality, residential, commercial, and cultural sectors.

Most recently a Principal at Grimshaw, Angela played a key role in the competition-winning scheme for the Oxford Botanic Gardens glasshouse project for Oxford University. She was also part of the extensive design team imagining the future Heathrow – work combining place making, connectivity, sustainability, and health and wellbeing within aspirational public spaces, a hotel, an office, and landside zones.

As a Partner at Denton Corker Marshall, she led hotel, resort, and office projects including 12-storey office development 20 Farringdon Street in central London. Her portfolio also features London hotel projects One Leicester Square and the Mandarin Oriental – a restoration and extension of their historic Hyde Park property – and high-profile restaurants and concept stores including Aesop’s London flagship. Notably, Angela led DCM’s work on Stonehenge Visitor Centre from design concept to completion.

Angela is passionate about diversity, equality, and inclusion in design. The leader of Grimshaw’s umbrella group for diversity, she was also a member of ‘Architects for Change’ at the Royal Institute of British Architects and is one of the Mayor of London’s Design Advocates supporting ‘Good Growth by Design’ across the city. Angela is also a university examiner, lecturer, and mentor and a frequent speaker at industry events.

Angela’s innovative thinking on the Heathrow project and her advocacy in diversity earned her the ‘Best Woman Architect’ award from the European Women in Construction & Engineering (WICE) group in 2020.
