Emma Powell

Landscape Architect


Emma is driven to create dynamic places for people to use in their day to day lives. As part of her masters she explored the restorative benefits of green spaces for communities – something she continues to advocate in her work at FHA.

Emma is currently working on the landscape improvements for Barnfield Estate, an existing large-scale housing scheme in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. She has also been integral to the technical development and delivery of Devons Road, a new residential development in East London for Peabody. Both schemes have benefitted from Emma’s skills in community engagement and consultation, ensuring that change has a positive impact on the lives of residents.

She is a keen traveller with an enthusiasm for broadening her design knowledge by exploring other cultures and climates. Her experiences have been documented in her shared blogged ’The Secret Garden Atlas’.

Outside of the office Emma's is interested in photography, letterpressing, graphic design and bee keeping.
