Olivia Heading

Architectural Assistant (Part 1)

Olivia studied architecture at the University of Nottingham, graduating in 2020 with a first class degree and a first in all final year design projects. During her studies Olivia found work experience with architects, kitchen designers and a visual effects company, developing her design and modelling skills.

Olivia joined Walters & Cohen in January 2021, working from home during lockdown. Her beautiful hand-drawn sketches made a strong contribution to our competition submission for Wycombe Abbey School, articulating what a new boarding house might look like and how the spaces might feel. She remains involved with the Wycombe Abbey project and is also working on a masterplan for Pembroke College, Oxford.
