Laurie Hallows


Laurie has extensive experience in all stages of architectural work from the development of client briefs through delivery on site. Her portfolio reflects particular interests in education and residential projects, in sustainable design and in work within historic contexts.

Several of Laurie’s projects have garnered RIBA awards including a new Boarding House for Brighton College, which was delivered within a challenging 18 month design and construction programme; and the remodelling of a 700 pupil secondary school, St Thomas the Apostle College, in south London, which received an RIBA award in 2015. She also helped lead the design of a new school integrated into the second phase of Keybridge.

Laurie has also led higher education projects at Cambridge University, new Passivhaus graduate student accommodation for King’s College, Cambridge, an estate masterplan for Gonville and Caius College and a masterplan for the Sidgwick arts and humanities campus, revisiting a site we know well. She is now working on the School of Public Health for Imperial College, London.

Originally from the United States, Laurie trained at Cornell University, and has a Masters in the History of Modern Architecture from the Bartlett. She is an active member of our Housing, Sustainability and Resources Groups.
