At West Grove Architecture we believe well designed and naturally lit spaces have a positive impact on people’s lives.
In the home, family life is significantly easier if the spaces we inhabit help us rather than hinder us. Our designs impact how a home is lived in, and allow our clients to make the most of the spaces they have available. We recognise that all homes are a unique combination of spaces and the people within them. Our thorough briefing and concept design sessions will ensure that the developed proposals will work for you and your lifestyle.
The practice was founded in 2018 by Amy Twining. Amy is a mum of three and an RIBA Chartered Architect with over 10 years' experience. Before founding West Grove Architecture, Amy led teams in two award winning architectural practices (BDP & Stride Treglown). Working first as a specialist education architect and then as an associate architect, she has designed and delivered many complex multi-million pound projects, both newbuilds and refurbishments. These include the School of Business and Management at Royal Holloway University, The Mackinder and Windsor Halls and catering at the Univeristy of Reading, The Roland Levinsky Building at Plymouth Univeristy, and Pentrehafod Secondary school in Swansea.
Amy studied for her RIBA Part 1 and 2 at the Welsh School of Architecture at Cardiff University, qualifying in 2003 with a commendation. She completed her Part 3 and her MA in Professional Studies also at Cardiff in 2005. She has remained involved with the Welsh School of Architecture since completing her MA and is a regular tutor, visiting assessor and occasional speaker on the Part 3 Diploma course.
