New practices: Vesta Architecture

  • Comment

The latest in a series of practice profiles looking at architects who have recently decided to go it alone

Vesta Architecture, Jersey, Channel Islands

Main people Anna Powell

Founded May 2012

Where have you come from?
Armsby Architects in Australia, BDK Architects in Jersey and Studio Four in England. 

What work do you have and what are you looking for?
Projects include residential, listed building renovation and commercial fit out. Having specialised in environmental architecture, I try to put an eco twist into all my work. I would love to design a completely off-grid house, and also have aspirations to design a building for Jersey’s Durrell Wildlife Park.

What are your ambitions?
To have boutique practices in both England and Jersey. I want Vesta to be the first choice practice for environmental architecture in the Channel Islands.

What are the biggest challenges you face as a start-up?
The hardest thing is working on my own. I’ve overcome this by being a council member for the Association of Jersey Architects and a visiting lecturer at the local college.

Which recent scheme has inspired you most?
I love PAD Studio’s Stoney Cross House. It’s a beautiful building, entirely respectful of its surroundings.

How are you marketing yourself?
I’ve tried to be approachable by using social media as a main marketing tool. Our recently completed project The Palms  has been featured in local magazines and newspapers.
