Sarah studied at Bath University and Oxford Brookes, where she specialised in regeneration and was awarded the Fielding Dodd Prize for Excellence and graduated with distinction. Sarah joined Panter Hudspith Architects in 2007 and has been an Associate with the practice since early 2016.
Since joining the practice, Sarah has worked on a wide variety of projects from smaller refurbishments to large scale mixed-use sites and housing. Sarah’s first project was the RIBA competition-winning scheme for a large mixed-use development site in Tunbridge Wells, which she took through to planning approval in 2008. For the 2012 London Olympics, Sarah worked on delivering three residential buildings and associated landscaping as part of the Athletes Village.
In 2013 Sarah completed an extensive refurbishment of a Grade II* listed Georgian manor house and orangery in Somerset from planning through to completion on site, to a high end residential specification.
Following this, Sarah led the conversion and extension of a Victorian church and school house into an art house cinema, bar and restaurant in East Dulwich, South East London. The project was named a regional finalist for London in the Civic Trust Awards 2016, and was part of the winning quartet of projects, which named the Practice Architect of the Year 2016 for Sports and Leisure.
Sarah’s current projects include the redevelopment of Shrewsbury Dana, a Grade II listed Georgian and Victorian walled former prison site into a mixed use development including student accommodation, residential and extensive landscaping alongside the redevelopment of the Grade II* listed Wedgwood Institute in Stoke-on-Trent into a workplace hub.
In 2017 Sarah was appointed to the Black Country Garden City Design Panel.
