Georgina is a Director of Proctor and Matthews Architects overseeing large scale residential and placemaking projects. She studied at the University of Westminster before joining the practice in 1999.

Georgina played a key role on the award-winning projects Abode at Great Kneighton, a major new housing and mixed use community in the Cambridge Southern Fringe growth area and Greenwich Millennium Village in London. The project utilised prefabricated construction techniques to deliver rapid construction and increased quality.

Recent work includes Inholm, a sustainable urban neighbourhood of 400 homes that sets pioneering townscape design principles for the wider new town of Northstowe near Cambridge. Initiated by Homes England, Northstowe is England’s most ambitious new town project since Milton Keynes and will eventually grow to a community of 10,000 homes.

Georgina is currently working alongside O’Donnell and Tuomey Architects to deliver social housing for Dublin City Council and has recently been part of a team led by LDA to design a new village ‘Little Impney’ on the Impney Estate, South Worcestershire.

Georgina has also been applying her experience to undertake design guidance that aspires to deliver character and quality across large sites, including the Design for Ebbsfleet Study and the Hertfordshire Strategic Sites Design Guidance. Most recently she has been involved in a borough wide Pathfinder Design Code for Gedling Borough Council led by David Lock Associates.

Georgina is currently a member on various Design Review Panels.
