Camilla is Director at Whittaker Parsons, an award-winning architectural practice based in east London, interested in the ethical and sustainable craft of building. The studio has recently been featured in the Architecture Foundation’s ‘New Architects 4’ publication and prides itself on making bold yet carefully considered interventions. Clients include private homeowners, leading artists, and international retailers.
With a background in cultural master planning and architectural conservation, Camilla is interested in bringing new life to existing buildings and spaces, exploring how materials and craftsmanship come together to make spaces for the long term. Before forming the studio in 2015, Camilla gained a wide range of experience in the conservation, cultural, education, and residential sectors. Whilst at Burd Haward Architects, she worked on the RIBA award-winning Mottisfont Abbey Visitor Centre for the National Trust and the cultural master plan for the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh. She also worked on the master plan for the Royal Observatory Greenwich and was part of Purcell’s conservation advisory team for the Natural History Museum central hall program.
Camilla has been a guest critic at numerous schools of architecture and enjoys running architectural talks and workshops in east-end schools.
