Jade is an architect and designer, whose interest in architecture stems from her experience growing up abroad as a third culture kid, whilst also coming from a multicultural family.
Her international upbringing has played an integral role in shaping who she is both personally and professionally, influencing her approach and understanding of design; improving the built environment, and working with people from diverse backgrounds. As an associate at the architecture firm, Bennetts Associates, Jade has harnessed these skills on projects across various sectors and of varying scales. She has a keen interest in adaptive reuse and how we can best transform existing buildings. But she does not shy away from new build projects and cultural buildings. She believes that great architecture comes down to creating good working relationships with everyone involved.
Most recently, Jade was project lead for the design and delivery of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) offices – refurbishing a century-old hop warehouse in London Bridge, and worked on the masterplan and concept design for the forthcoming Woolwich Works cultural hub that reuses grade-listed historic artillery buildings at the Royal Arsenal. Jade was also a key player in the 2x RIBA-award winning 40 Chancery Lane offices.
