Ashley Mayes is an RIBA Architectural Assistant at Associated Architects and MArch Architecture graduate of the Sheffield School of Architecture.

During my final year of study I was part of Studio: Intergenerational Architecture tutored by Satwinder Samra. My thesis design project, sited in Rotherham, proposed a new architecture for young and elderly care in response to issues relating to the UK’s ageing population. My dissertation ‘Architectural Education: Is it worth it?’ analysed the current financial pressures of becoming an architect today, and proposed future models for architectural education.

Since 2015, I have been part of a talented team at Associated Architects working on projects of a variety of scales and across a range of sectors. I enjoy furthering my interests in art, design and photography, taking inspiration from my travels and everyday encounters. Aside from dreaming and making, I am an avid runner, cyclist and explorer of the outdoors.

I have been featured in and commentated for the Guardian, Architects’ Journal, Architectural Review, ArchDaily and the BBC.

If you have any work related enquiries or for anything else about my architecture work and design projects, then please don’t hesitate to contact me.
