Isabella Woolley completed her Masters of Architecture in 2019 at Victoria University of Wellington, in New Zealand. Her thesis researched how to design for inhabitation of the New Zealand coastline, whilst leaving a low negative impact on the environment. This research was tested through a hypothetical development on an island, which materialized as several communities made up of holiday homes and campgrounds, that were all serviced through shared amenities and communal spaces.
Isabella has had several years work experience in New Zealand at a large multi-disciplinary consultancy. She has worked on educational, industrial and commercial projects, both new build and retrofits. She is currently involved in a range of different retrofit projects within ECD, and is continuing to develop her sustainable design skills.
