Lily Street: Part III Architectural Assistant

Lily is a graduate of the University of Newcastle and the Leeds School of Architecture where she has recently completed her Masters in Architecture with Distinction. She joined Manning Elliott in 2018 and has worked part time whilst studying. She is now back with us full time and we are currently supporting her with the RIBA Part 3, which once complete will ensure she will be a fully qualified Architect. Lily is passionate about sustainable design and enjoys working on residential projects with clients at the early concept and feasibility stages. She is also keen on implementing the use of BIM to enhance collaborative working and the process of producing architectural visualisations to enable clients to realise their projects in 3D.

Other Interests

Lily enjoys fell walking in the Lakes and spending time with her Labradors in her spare time. She also likes to paint when she finds the time and is hoping to get back into playing Hockey for the local Penrith Ladies team now that she has moved back to the area. 

Favourite Designer

Lily admires the work of British designer Thomas Heatherwick, as his innovative design response often generates original and inspirational ideas. Human experiences are often centre to his work, which generates public space of great social importance. The diverse materials and techniques he utilises are experimental and a reminder that the industry is always evolving, which is more important than ever given the climate crisis we are facing. Lily specifically admires the recently completed project, Maggie’s Centre in Leeds. This space is designed for people but also with the environment in mind. It is constructed from a prefabricated and sustainably sourced spruce timber system and utilises natural materials and energy saving techniques throughout.
