Louise studied MSc Cities, Space and Society at the London School of Economics and has an Associate Masters Certificate in Urban Design from Oxford Brookes University and a BA (Hons) in Geography and Development Studies from Sussex University. She joined Allies and Morrison Urban Practitioners in 2011.
Louise manages masterplan, urban design and strategic planning projects at a range of scales on behalf of the public, private and third sector clients. Her projects focus on achieving high quality design and clear development guidance through a participatory process with stakeholders and local communities. She has particular experience in designing and managing engagement programmes that build consensus and can be put to practical use in developing design solutions. A sensitive and contextual approach is taken for projects, many of which are located within existing complex urban environments.
Louise has recently completed a masterplan SPD for Old Town in Croydon and a Vision for Guildford Town Centre. She is currently working on the design for a new public square at North Acton Station, which has planning permission, and a masterplan for Digbeth in Birmingham, close to the proposed HS2 Terminal.
Louise is a visiting critic at Nottingham University’s School of the Built Environment.
