Etain is an Associate Director with 25 years’ international experience working with prestigious clients across the commercial, residential, education and leisure sectors. Her expertise covers coordinating complex team structures in both a design and delivery capacity and working from inception through construction to ensure original design intents are maintained.
Etain has unrivalled experience delivering high end developments that integrate with public realm and existing infrastructure, often in constrained sites. She has exemplified these skills in her role on The News Building at London Bridge, a new build office headquarters as part of the Shard Quarter, and 10 Park Drive a residential delivery project spanning 520 apartments in the Wood Wharf masterplan. Her extensive work designing public spaces, roof terraces and amenities on these and other projects has given her a comprehensive understanding of wellbeing in architecture. These skills are being employed on her current role leading the team at Northcliffe House, a heritage office refurbishment, and UCA Epsom, where JRA is collaborating with UN Studio to provide local design support for the new business school.
Alongside her project work, Etain sits on the conference committee for the American Institute of Architects and is a member of City Architecture Forum.
