vPPR: ‘As women architects our identity stands out’

[VIDEO] In this interview for crane.tv, AJ Emerging Woman Architect of the Year shortlisted practice vPPR Architects speak about being a female-led firm

Practice founders Tatiana von Preussen, Catherine Pease and Jessica Reynolds said that ‘as women we bring something different than a firm of male architects.

‘Being women has been a help – our identity stands out.’

Speaking about their approach, the trio added: ‘We are interested in clusters of buildings. It is not about a certain sector. We are more about the approach to different kinds of use.’

They also spoke about the practice’s first completed new-build project - two homes built on a triangular site surrounded by 23 party walls.

The scheme, Ott’s Yard, won an RIBA Award and went on to be shortlisted for the 2014 Stephen Lawrence Prize.
