Lucy Steeden


Lucy graduated from the Arts University Bournemouth in 2018, where her final degree project was nominated for RIBA Part 1 Bronze Award.

Lucy spent two years at HCL Architects, working on London based residential buildings and microarchitecture.  While at the LSA, Lucy joined Mikhail Riches part-time, where she began to develop her interest in socially conscious residential architecture. 

The themes of people, planet and nature have been integral to her growing research and design methodology, culminating in her thesis project titled ‘Garden City’ — a sustainable and economically viable council housing model, generated through a landscape-led architecture approach.

Since graduating from the LSA, Lucy has been working at IF_DO, researching and developing a series of Covid-19 Spatial Design Guides, to help publicly-shared spaces adapt and reopen in a post-lockdown pre-vaccine environment.
