Claire Taylor


As a graduate of the Centre for Alternative Technology, I’m excited to be working for Paul Testa Architecture to develop my skills in sustainable design.

I’ve spent a couple of years working in a large practice, and bring an eye for detail and a love of getting stuck into complex briefs. I’m looking forward to working at all stages of the design process and will be studying for my Part 3 alongside working in practice.

I’m interested in designing for and with communities, making places that enhance people’s lives. I’m also interested in using natural light as a medium for design – thinking about how light moves through and around a space and how this affects our understanding of time and place.

I’ve lived in Sheffield since beginning my studies here in 2007. I’m a climber, runner and cyclist and I love exploring the network of green spaces connecting the city to the Peak District. This is a great city and a great opportunity to work with people on local projects.
