Holly Wells


Holly completed her diploma at the Manchester School of Architecture in 2010.  She has worked at BuckleyGrayYeoman since then, becoming an Associate in 2017.

Holly has completed a range of commercial schemes and is currently delivering residential and cultural projects. Holly’s strengths lie in finding clear, elegant solutions to complex briefs, applying a balanced approach to both matters of design and problem-solving.

Holly is currently working for South Kensington Estates to create a world-class art market destination in South Kensington within buildings which once housed the studio or the celebrated artist Sir John Lavery.  The design will provide both public and private exhibition space alongside support functions, storage and private viewing rooms required for the operation of the individual gallery businesses. This complex project involves extensive negotiations with local residents groups and English Heritage.

 She was nominated for Women in Construction 2016, rising star category which recognises those in the early stages of their careers.

Holly is a member of the Women in Architecture campaign, which BuckleyGrayYeoman supports.  She is a keen instigator of BuckleyGrayYeoman’s mentoring scheme actively guiding and encouraging the younger members of the practice.  More recently she has become a practice mentor for the London School of Architecture, a new architectural institution which aims to bring together practice and academia.
