Shuahra is an RIBA Chartered Architect, with several years of substantive
experience under her belt.
She has worked on a rich variety of projects from strategic housing and regeneration
projects for developers, to bespoke residential extensions for home-owners. Shuahra
has always been drawn to take on challenges that require elegant and practical
solutions and she brings this to each of her projects. Her approach is focused on
community and collaboration, with an appreciation that successful projects involve
working with and for people.
Her expertise lies in the residential sector, having managed projects from
inception to completion. Coupled with her experience in small practice environments
often running multiple projects simultaneously, has taught her to be detail oriented,
organised and proactive. It was a source of delight and pride to design extensions
and new builds for home-owner clients and certainly heightened her sensitivity to the
nature of such projects. She enjoyed working closely with them to ensure their needs
were met and at the forefront of the creative process, whilst emulating their individual
identities. It was here that she found fulfilment in work, as it enabled her to actively
solve problems which were affecting peoples day-to-day lives.
With the mood music changing, striking a chord with work and life has been the
driver to pursuing this venture for Shuahra. She moved to Sutton in 2016 and is
proud to live in ‘the best place in London for families to move to’. With a location at
the edge of the North Downs means there are plenty of outdoor activities to do and
also home to some of the best schools in the country. Shuahra is excited to be
heading up Pride Road Sutton and Kingston concentrating on areas including
Beddington, Carshalton, Cheam, Banstead, and Epsom.
Pride Road would enable her to establish a meaningful career and also able to
balance her family life. It would also be an opportunity to have flexibility in her
schedule, and enjoy the support network that the franchise offers. She has several
years of experience working with home-owners, so understands the importance and
value of human approach which Pride Road upholds. Working with people in her
local area would allow her to help develop homes that truly contribute to the well-
being and lives of those in her local community.
Shuahra completed her Architecture studies at University of Westminster and
qualified as an Architect in 2017. She uses her professional experience as an RIBA
Chartered Member, to mentor part I architecture students, in particular encouraging
those from BAME backgrounds and women.
In her spare time, Shuahra volunteers at a mental health charity and is a fully trained
mental health first aider. This interest extends to architecture and she believes that
thoughtful design can provide a significant improvement to people’s mental health
and wellbeing. Hobbies include yoga, reading, hiking, and sketching. She also
dabbles in a bit of organic gardening. She is fluent in Bengali.
