Head of Interior Design

Hannah is an experienced Interior Designer who has specialised in the BtR sector for the last 5 years. She has worked on a variety of projects including PBSA, mainstream BtR, affordable BtR and senior living. She has an eye for detail and is very commercially minded and is never afraid to think outside of the box. Hannah has an Interior Architecture degree from the University of Portsmouth.

Rachael O’Dwyer

Interior Architect

Rachael is an expert in space planning and internal workings of residential and accompanying commercial schemes. Rachael will work alongside the main architects to ensure that the interiors are laid out in a way that make sense for a residential scheme. It is our belief that a scheme can only really work perfectly if the design at the front end is tied into the interior design. To that end Rachael’s experience and interaction with the interior design team is crucial and is how we offer a more integrated and thoughtful approach to the overall design of a scheme.
