Sophie joined the OOBE team after graduating with distinction from Edinburgh College of Art mid 2012. During her study she gained experience as a landscape architect in Vienna, Harrogate and Australia. After nearly 2 years in our Newcastle office Sophie relocated to join our growing OOBE London team.
Since joining OOBE Sophie has been involved in a variety of projects of varying scales, including the multi-award winning Littlehaven Promenande, the first phase of the Newcastle University King’s Road scheme and the University of Huddersfield’s refreshed student plaza.
She gained her Chartership in May 2016 and now combines her theoretical knowledge with a design process based on warmth of place and simplicity of design intervention. An art college background encourages a visual approach to design – from considered masterplans to refined detailing.
Outside of OOBE Sophie continues to have a casual curiosity in all things creative. She has a particular soft spot for beautiful books and spending an afternoon wandering to find the little shops that house them.
