Romy studied architecture at the Bauhaus University, Germany and Virginia Tech, Washington DC. She completed her studies at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London. Her studies at Bauhaus University sparked an initial interest in visual communication and the graphic representation of architecture and after working as an architect for a number of years, Romy joined Allies and Morrison in 2007 as a graphic designer.
Since becoming the Head of the Graphics team in 2009, Romy has led the design of the practice’s graphic identity and language, now implemented across all practice documentation, presentations and publications, as well as in signage and branding of the practice’s studios. Since 2011 Romy has led the creative design and launch of the Allies and Morrison website, overseeing its completed redesign in 2015.
Romy has also managed the design and production of a number of practice publications, including three monographs, a number of project-specific books and most recently, The Fabric of Place, a selection of essays and case studies of individual projects by Allies and Morrison.
