Prior to joining Public Practice, Lauren had a track record of delivering mixed-use refurbishment schemes and innovative meanwhile use projects, including Pergola On The Roof, a pop-up bar on top of the former BBC Television Centre Car Park, and the conversion of The Rex, a disused Stratford nightclub and theatre, into a trampoline park and open-air cinema. She has acted as Practice Mentor for the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and the NLA, and is co-founder of OSA, a student-led print magazine that aims to encourage conversations and learning across the university environment.

As part of the fourth cohort of Public Practice, Lauren supported the delivery of sustainable new homes and jobs within the Great West Corridor and Heathrow (West of Borough Plan) Opportunity Areas and the two Housing Zones in Feltham and Hounslow by managing and coordinating the design review panel and expanding its role in reviewing major schemes. Her role also involved developing planning briefs, supplementary planning documents and masterplans and providing design input for developing visions, masterplans and planning policy guidance for the borough’s four town centres.
