Women in practice profile: practice director, KSR Architects

WHY YOU BECAME AN ARCHITECT My father worked in the architects’ department at Hertfordshire County Council

FIRST PROJECT A tiny house extension

SECTORS YOU WORK IN High-end residential

WHY WOMEN LEAVE They are paid far too little to make compromising family life worthwhile

WHAT WOULD MAKE THEM STAY? More role models, mentoring, increased acceptance of flexi-time, asympathetic male workforce

HOW TO MAKE IT WORK Avoid male-dominated practices and keep your sense of humour

Place of study The Bartlett
Current projects Private house; mixed-use development
Clients Grosvenor, RBS, Stanhope, small niche residential developers and private individuals
Featured project Holford Road (conversion of a nursing home into homes)
Client Private
Completed 2010
