James (Josh) McCosh
Carol joined vHH after spending 5 months in Utah building straw bale affordable housing, which greatly increased her knowledge of natural building. She is passionate about creating low impact buildings that have an environmental and social conscience. She studied at Newcastle University for both her Part 1 and Part 2, culminating in a thesis exploring the possibilities of hemp and rethinking the typology of student housing,then completed her Part 3 at Westminster University.
Carol was drawn to vHH by their enthusiasm for passivhaus design and portfolio of well-designed schools, which builds upon her background of educational design. She has worked on primary, secondary and university buildings at previous practices and is keen to gain greater experience through Rugby Radio Station School, which she has been working on since joining the team.
