Women in Sustainable Architecture: Fran Bradshaw

  • Comment

Partner at Anne Thorne Architects

Fran Bradshaw is a partner at Anne Thorne Architects, which designs new and retrofit sustainable projects and advises clients on low-energy design. The small practice is known for having a majority of women on staff; currently the practice has three female partners.

Over the past 20 years the practice has built up a reputation for site and user-specific projects that enhance the value of places, specialising in participatory, low-energy, sustainable design and detailing. Anne Thorne Architects has a preference for using natural materials and designing to the Passivhaus standard. Partners at the practice have given numerous talks on sustainable building and regularly present at the UK Passivhaus conferences.

Bradshaw said: ‘We like people – that’s why and how we design. Together we can make buildings which are both a pleasure and practical to live in, and which use the earth’s resources carefully and imaginatively.’
