Emily joined the practice in 2014, prior to completing her MArch at the University of Liverpool. She qualified in 2019. Emily’s Masters dissertation investigated the history and significance of The Bluecoat, Liverpool; a former charity school, today the Grade I listed building houses an Arts Centre for the City of Liverpool. She has carried out a number of extensive condition surveys, and has experience working on various private residential and public projects, all of which have been to listed buildings or buildings in conservation areas. She also has experience working on Scheduled Ancient Monuments and in World Heritage Sites.
Emily is one of the founding members of DS.twelve, a design collective formed by architects and designers at Insall, who have a collective interest in the complex stories of the spaces we inhabit and how these evolve over time. Emily’s interests lie in how sustainability, conservation and our existing built environment can come together in responding to the climate crisis. She is active in the Architects Climate Action Network (ACAN) within the Existing Buildings thematic group, as well as Heritage Declares.
