Laura Simpkins

Laura Simpkins


Laura qualified as an architect 20 years ago and started her career in a large multinational practice followed by a small design led practice specialising in school design. Meanwhile two daughters came along, necessitating the design of an innovative extension to Laura and her Civil Engineer husband’s New Forest home. A redundancy led to a short break from architecture, becoming a piano teacher and having a son which turned family life well and truly upside down.

Venturing back into architecture Laura worked for a local practice specialising in residential design but also designing dentist surgeries and old people’s homes. She realised how much more fulfilling she found designing for end users rather than developers.

Discovering Pride Road seemed an ideal opportunity to continue to work in architecture but fit work around what is an increasingly hectic schedule with her 3 children now at 3 different schools. With a keen interest in what makes a family home work well and desire to support pride road in its encouragement of women’s long term careers in architecture, she has taken the plunge to join the franchise and is very excited to start heading up Pride Road New Forest & Bournemouth in the new year.
