Education

Molly graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2022, completing Part 1 with an MA(Hons) in Architecture. Her dissertation research analysed the retrofit and conservation of listed tenement buildings in Edinburgh City, looking specifically at current policies informing the transition to net-zero 2045. Her thesis project focused on using circular design principles to re-purpose a derelict listed building in Granton, creating a community hub and material reclamation centre. The project explored topics of retrofit, designing for deconstruction, implementation of energy efficient building systems and creation of a building passport to assist potential material reuse in the future of the site.
