Magdalena Haener - Pride Road Architects - Residential Architecture Specialist

Magdalena Haener


An ARB Architect specialising in residential architecture, Magdalena Haener is a highly commended professional with a wealth of great projects behind her and has been singled out for her highly detailed work in the Manchester area. Most notably, this includes her design work for recent dwelling projects in Scenne and a conversion on Liverpool Rd.

Between 2005 and 2009, Magdelena worked with Group Arch in Moscow and Poland, with the main focus of the practice being more on retail. However, this was a fantastic place for her to gain a great deal of experience across different projects that have helped inform her approach towards residential in the years that have followed.

Magdalena’s residential work began back in 2004 where she worked at Neodesign until 2005, working very closely with clients to ensure their needs and desires were always at the forefront of the creative process. These small-scale projects allowed her to be involved at every stage of development too – which is something she now also brings to her role at Pride Rd Manchester South.

Magdalena studied at Wroclaw University of Technology and completed her Architecture Diploma in 2005 and became a registered Architect in Poland in 2010 and in England in 2012. She speaks: Polish , Russian and German (not too fluent) and is a practising Buddhist and is a proud mum of two.

Magdalena heads up our Pride Road Manchester Architects dept.

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.
