Gruff is formed of a dynamic team of architects, designers and creatives. A close-knit practice, with a wide range of experience and skills, our collective understanding of the built environment creates unique and thoughtful proposals.
Moving to London 11 years ago from Cambridge, Charlotte studied at The Bartlett School of Architecture where she was awarded The Faculty Medal 2011 and The Bartlett Medal 2015.
As a keen maker, she is often found in our workshop milling, casting or prototyping. Her curiosity for materiality and innovative fabrication techniques means she regularly encourages the studio to join her at lectures, performances and off-piste exhibition visits.
Outside Gruff, Charlotte currently runs the architectural design unit, UG6, at The Bartlett UCL where she also held a research position for Christine Hawley working on international exhibitions for a number of years. Before Gruff, she worked for Matthew Springett Associates and Meadowcroft Griffin Architects where she was heavily involved the design and fabrication of kinetic installations, school design and residential schemes. She also collaborates in the design and making of temporary event spaces and branding concepts for clients such as SUITCASE magazine and independent taprooms. Charlotte is currently studying for her professional qualifications.
