Women in practice profile: partner, Burd Haward Architects

WHY YOU BECAME AN ARCHITECT I grew up among architects

BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION As a woman it’s tricky to organise people without being thought of as bossy. In men, the same qualities are regarded more positively

ON CHILDREN I’ve combined my career and mothering by running a business with my partner. This has given me flexibile working hours, but also means limited pay and fraught family life when workload gets heavy

INSPIRATION My step-mother-in-law, architect and mother Joanna van Heyningen

Place of study University of Manchester, Polytechnic of Central London
Current projects Visitor facilities for the National Trust, office conversion, public WC
Clients Mainly private individuals and organisations
Featured project RSG Nursery, London
Client Ready Steady Go
Budget £300,000
