About Her

Jennifer Evans stands out with her determination and passion in striving towards perfection. She works hard to walk the path that leads to new and interesting experiences, more knowledge and great connections with fantastic people.

Born in 1987, Jennifer is a resilient and creative designer with a powerful drive that sees her take on projects and assignments with a sense of purpose and natural drawing flair.

Having worked within a team in practice as well as on the course, Jennifer is a keen team player: "Her generosity in sharing her expertise and her time were unique in my experience and I doubt I would have achieved what I did without her support and friendship." Amanda Briggs, Operations Director at GSE Research Limited.

When Jennifer is not glued to a computer screen or sketchbook, you'll find her out and about: usually mountain biking, motorbiking, camping, visiting family or having a good laugh with friends.

About this project and my involvement:

This is a new build student accommodation; my involvement covers the RIBA Plan of Work: Stages 0-3.

The scheme was developed with the Client and support of director Ian Thorp. I produced various strategies, site layout, design & access statement, proposed sections and elevations and floor plans. Additionally I developed visualisations derived from a Sketch-Up model, adjusted using Photoshop. Several meetings were held with the Client, a number of which I attended and observed.

Issues such as the constraints enforced by the existing ground levels, existing surface water runoff and the overlooking nature of the site affecting neighbouring properties, were explored and considered during the design development. Additional factors, such as the use of the adjacent playing field and the local archetypes have influenced the proposal in form, setting and appearance.
