Laura Selwood BSc/MArch

Laura is a Part II Architectural Assistant at HK Architects, having completed her RIBA part II qualification in 2020. She joined HK Architects in July of the same year during covid 19. Laura completed her part I at Cardiff University at the Welsh School of Architecture (WSA).

During her first year of MArch at the same school she completed her “year in industry” at ‘asp’ Architekten GmBh in Stuttgart, Germany. There she not only introduced herself to the architectural practice but simultaneously became fluent in German. Laura has a passion for languages and hopes to consider herself multi-lingual by the age of 30.

In her final year at the WSA she chose to work under the directors of Arbor Architects, who increased her understanding and interest in sustainable architecture. Her final project titled:

“A 100% sustainable self-build co-housing scheme”

aimed to achieve what is currently non-existent; a cradle to cradle, zero carbon and regenerative design; a concept she hopes to build upon in her architectural career.

Laura began her part 3 qualification at the beginning of 2022 at LMU and as of April 2023 can now officially call herself an ARB registered architect; as the first of her MArch cohort.
