Pauline studied architecture at Newcastle University and the University of Westminster. She gained professional experience in London and the USA before joining Allies and Morrison in 1989. She was a Partner of the Practice from 2008-2015, returning as a Director in 2016 with a particular commitment to design quality.
Pauline led the team responsible for the practice’s own studio building at 85 Southwark Street, the RIBA London Building of the Year in 2004. She also led the design of Rambert Dance Company’s new home on the South Bank, a project which won an RIBA National Award in 2014. The transformation of St Thomas the Apostle College in Southwark involved a balance of new-build and work to existing buildings; an RIBA London Regional Award winner in 2015, the jury described the project as ‘a real exemplar of what good architecture can bring to school design’. Also that year, Pauline led our competition-winning team at Stratford Waterfront, a new neighbourhood on the edge of the Olympic Park creating venues for Sadler’s Wells, UAL’s London College of Fashion, The Victoria & Albert Museum and new homes, retail space and high-quality public realm.
Pauline is currently involved in design at 100 Bishopsgate, a 40-storey tower, and the renewal of another key building and associated public realm, both within the City of London.
