Ann Blythe

A childhood interest in sketching buildings and building dens led Ann to study architecture at Cambridge University, where she won the Edward S Prior prize as an undergraduate and went on to gain a Distinction in her post-graduate diploma.

Ann joined Graham's practice in 1992, becoming an associate in 1999 and a fellow director in 2002.

Ann's work on residential projects, ranges from bespoke new-build individual houses, extending, remodeling and repair of Listed houses, niche developments of new-build housing on sensitive sites, conversions of redundant agricultural buildings and larger new-build housing schemes. Ann enjoys the challenge of steering a way through the Planning process in order to achieve the best outcome for our clients.

She also enjoys commercial projects, working closely with the building's end-users to understand their processes, and she has experience as diverse as a food testing sensory laboratory and an optometrists' practice.

Ann enjoys drawing people as well as buildings and has illustrated several physiotherapy textbooks. Her other interests include eastern philosophy, hill-walking and slow cycling.
