Jemma graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2021, earning her Part I MA (Hons). She focused her final design project on researching circular economies within architectural design and re-use strategies for construction materials. As a contrast, her dissertation allowed her to focus on the health implications that a variety of materials can cause through their effects on indoor air quality. Her passion is to find socially and environmentally sustainable solutions through architectural design.
After gaining some experience at Freeland Rees Roberts Architects during her undergraduate studies, Jemma returned to work here after graduating. She is now working towards her Part II M.Arch in Sustainable Architecture at the Centre for Alternative Technology, whilst working on residential projects here. Jemma has brought her ambition for sustainable design and is currently working on a passive house project. In her spare time Jemma enjoys cooking, reading, and being outside.
Jemma was elected as a Director to the Freeland Rees Roberts Trustee Company in 2021.
