In 1999 she then joined Simon Morray-Jones’ Bath based practice for 6 years, leading one of Simon’s design teams until setting up her own practice in 2005 at the Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel, Vineyards.
Beatrice believes that good communication is fundamental to achieving successful solutions and in her pragmatic approach to the design and construction process, she always respects the historic context and aims to combine the historic with the contemporary. Each project is approached on its own merits, enthusiastically, to ensure the best possible result is achieved at all stages. Beatrice is convinced that attention to detail is one of the utmost priorities of the design process.
