Coral Sellars BA(hons) BArch ARB Associate
Emma Carter BSc MArch ARB Architect

Having initially joined Gruff in 2011, Emma has enjoyed working within all aspects of the practice. Emma studied for both her undergraduate and masters degrees at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL and qualified as an architect from The University of Westminster in 2016.

Her graduate projects explored how the European Housing Crisis could provide possibilities for community-driven residential design. In practice, Emma continues to further her interest in housing and public space, focusing on developing creative and playful design within specific site and social constraints.

While working at Gruff, Emma has also been personally involved in a number of exciting projects and competitions. As part of a collaboration she won a RIBA competition to design and fabricate a bench for the Olympic park. She has also designed and manufactured pop-up shops, event spaces and film sets for clients such as S U I T C A S E Magazine and Please Do Not Not Touch.
