Caryl joined Stanton Williams in 2006 as project architect for the Stirling Prize winning Sainsbury Laboratory for the University of Cambridge. She brings a broad range of expertise through her hands on intensive involvement in the project’s development, co-ordinating the design team and acting as main client contact for the University. This role provided her with the necessary and relevant experience of liaising with a large number of stakeholders plus working with design team consultants and commissioned artists to deliver a high profile, complex building. Caryl will also contribute experience of working with cultural institutions, including the V&A in London, along with an understanding of the complexities, challenges and opportunities of designing cultural lead schemes within sensitive, high profile sites.

Caryl has also worked on a range of projects including mixed use and residential developments within complex central London sites, along with smaller cultural and exhibition design projects. She is currently working on the redevelopment of prominent site in Shoreditch with a sensitive mix of refurbishment and new build to create workspace for creative, media and tech companies, along with retail, café and restaurant units and central public courtyard.

After graduating from Edinburgh University, Caryl worked in Australia and Hong Kong, before returning to work in several Edinburgh and Glasgow practices, before moving to London and becoming an associate with Asman Architects. Caryl’s previous experience includes a number of high profile projects such as the new Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh with RMJM/EMBT, exhibitions at the Barbican and the V&A, and several private houses for Azman Architects including the RIBA award winning Concrete House.
