“I have always been extremely ambitious and eager to learn, experience and try new things. But I am learning now to take things a little slower and be a bit more selective with my commitments.”
As the new Director of Architecture at Lanpro, Founder of ITALIANspaceWISE + Quaderno and Trustee/Advisor for a range of other organisations and charities, it doesn’t look like Margherita’s losing too much pace. “Lanpro is one of the fastest-growing planning consultancies in the UK. I joined them as Director of Architecture in May to lead the further growth of our architectural design division through the nation-wide development of our architectural services, sector portfolio and client base.” The new role, she says, is the culmination of 20 years of international experience in education, hospitality, high-end residential and commercial projects.
“I am passionate about architecture as a holistic science which embraces different disciplines and creates extraordinary spaces,” Margherita says, and she is working to bring this multi-disciplinary approach to Lanpro. Currently based in Cambridge, UK, and working with division leads across the business, Margherita is leading the consultancy with integrated development services which combine sustainability and positive design. “I love bringing different disciplines into my projects to deliver the best result with the most adequate methodology. The built environment coupled with the sustainable agenda is extremely complex and requires knowledge and understanding from different disciplines. Lanpro has given me an exciting opportunity where I can expand, strengthen and grow our client base, architectural portfolio and regional influence.”
