MEET THE TEAM

Andrea Lane

Founder and Owner

BA (Hons), Dip Arch, PG Cert. RIBA ARB Chartered Architect

Having studied at the prestigious Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow, she qualified as an architect and became an RIBA Chartered Member in 2002.  Andrea gained experience working for internationally renowned practices such as Stirling Wilford and Grimshaw Architects, and spent ten years at Proctor and Matthews Architects in London, as a Project Architect and Associate working on many award-winning housing schemes in and around London, and the new Priory Quarter Office Development in Hastings. She was also a visiting tutor at Sheffield University.

After working in France for five years, she later moved to Cornwall in 2014 where she worked with Stride Treglown and Lavigne Lonsdale before launching her own practice in 2015.

Andrea has a keen ‘eye for design’ coupled with strong technical knowledge and practical skills. She put this into practice when in 2010 she renovated her home in France and self-built a home in Falmouth, completed in July 2019.

Her scope of work is expansive but her specialism lies in residential buildings with a particular interest in self-build projects and one-off houses and house extensions. Additionally, Andrea has experience in the often challenging process of working on Listed Buildings and Heritage Assets.

It was excellent that all plans were approved by the council quickly, with no changes. The architect also contacted and dealt with appropriate agencies on our behalf, for structural quotes, builders, building regs etc."
