With a background in cultural master planning and architectural conservation, Camilla is interested in bringing new life to existing buildings and spaces, exploring how materials and craftsmanship come together to make spaces for the long term.

Valeria studied Architecture at Universita degli studi G. d’Annunzio in Pescara, Italy, where she qualified as an Architect in 2018. She joined Whittaker Parsons a year later. With abundance of creative passion, excellent design, project management and teamwork skills, she quickly became a valuable member of the team.
She is particularly interested in regeneration projects and adaptive reuse of existing buildings where old and new can meet and create a new identity. She developed this passion in her Master thesis “Vacant Architecture”: urban regeneration of an historical Italian town through the re-use of its forgotten architecture.
Valeria is a keen photographer with an interest in graphic design. During her spare time, she can be found exploring the countless London’s art museums with her camera in hand.
