Camilla joined Bryden Wood in November 2016 having previously worked in architectural practices in New York. She graduated from Sapienza University of Rome after developing her master thesis in Paris on the energy efficient and functional retrofit of an ex industrial building. During her working experience in Italy, US and U.K. she has gained experience in both small and large scale projects, giving her the opportunity to explore different aspects of architectural design such as residential refurbishment, mixed use and cultural projects.
At Bryden Wood she has been involved in a GSK pharmaceutical facility where she developed a good knowledge of the design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA) strategies used widely in the company. This experience has been strengthened during her engagement in the design of the office building for an international Data Centre company. This project presented a challenging opportunity to develop an integrated industrialisation approach for both the building envelope and interiors, where different aspects of buildability and systemisation have been explored by preserving the branding and architectural brief. Camilla worked as part of an integrated team to develop key elements of the system design, leading the coordination among the different disciplines and interfacing directly with the client and other stakeholders to assure the progress of the design and the compliance with deadlines. She is currently involved in different other projects with the same client developing strategies for various new sites.
Camilla strongly believes in the importance of collaboration and multidisciplinary approach to architecture, where people represent the most valuable resource to conceive innovative ideas and challenge problems with dynamism. She is a communicative and curios person with a natural attitude to work in teams and a strong passion for traveling and art.
