Emma studied in Glasgow at the Mackintosh School of Architecture, and spent a year at a Melbourne University in Australia. She graduated in 1997, qualifying as an architect in 1999. Emma worked for Scottish practices in Glasgow and Edinburgh, primarily on education and arts projects, before joining Hoskins Architects as a Project Architect in 2004. She was made an Associate in 2006.
Emma has extensive design and project leading experience, with a particular passion for education and community projects. She enjoys developing ideas with clients, carrying out consultation with stakeholders, and building a good project team dynamic. At Hoskins Architects Emma is currently working on high profile arts and heritage projects. She is involved in design development and project running, client liaison, public consultation and project funding proposals. She is also responsible for organising the architectural study trips and annual social events.
Emma’s ability to successfully liaise with clients and public bodies on challenging projects has ensured their £30m Aberdeen Art Gallery redevelopment project proposal obtained Listed building Consent, and Heritage Lottery Funding. Leading the team on the project from the initial design stages, she has successfully taken the project to site. The ambitious redevelopment will be realised by 2017, creating a new cultural hub in Aberdeen.
