Ulrike studied at the University of Applied Sciences in Konstanz, Germany, graduating in 1997 with a diploma in architecture. She worked as a draughtsperson and student architect for practices in Germany and Switzerland before moving to London to work for Walters & Cohen in 1998 on projects including a health club in Elstree and residential refurbishments in London and Tobago. Ulrike left the practice in 2000 and worked at two London-based practices, predominantly on high-end residential projects.
Happily, Ulrike returned to Walters & Cohen in 2015. She worked on St Swithun’s School, was project architect for Sandringham Primary School and led the refurbishment of staff housing for St Paul's School. She is currently part of The King's School team and leads the Precincts Projects.
Ulrike was made an Associate in 2019.
