Alana is a passionate heritage professional with a background in Architecture who believes that understanding cultural heritage is a vital component in developing successful environments and communities. She is a keen researcher and understands the importance of investigating the history, community and heritage values of historic places to ensure their appropriate care and future potential.
During her professional career she has had the opportunity to work in both private practice and the public sector, assisting on in the delivery of a diverse range of projects from contemporary and conservation focused architectural work to cultural heritage engagement programmes and research projects.
Alana is inspired by places of rich cultural diversity having travelled extensively throughout Turkey and has spent time studying and living in both Athens and the United Kingdom. She believes that the best developments communicate a well realised intersection between place and cultural values, contemporary design and functional needs, citing projects such as Yagan square and the Guildford hotel revitalisation as successful examples of this approach.
