She subsequently worked with Metropolitan Workshop and PRS Architects back in London on a number of master planning, refurbishment and public realm projects within the UK and internationally.
Claire has a particular interest in exploration of social and cultural dimensions of architecture and the relationship between architecture and human interaction and enjoys working with materiality and tactility
of spaces at the human scale as well as design at a strategic urban level.
During her student work, Claire explored new sociable housing typologies responding to London’s housing crisis, communal urban living spaces and regeneration strategies for the favelas of Medellin, alternative approaches to place-making and bottom-up regeneration strategies for her hometown of Coventry and strategies for re-use and re-appropriation of existing buildings.
She has had work exhibited in several public exhibitions and shows including the Venice Biennale fringe, Royal Academy Summer Show and the Roca Gallery in Chelsea and has been an invited critic at the Bartlett School of Architecture.

He then moved onto Orms where, amongst various commercial projects, he worked on a hotel conversion in the brutalist icon Camden Town Hall and innovative adaptations to the sensitive Denmark Street in Soho.
His fascination with the everyday has led him to recreate miniatures from his environment, often with elements of re-appropriation and decay, as a way of exploring identity and representation, as well as cultural and socio economic issues.
Since joining Hayhurst and Co. Tony has been exploring interesting construction techniques and materials.
