THERESIA JAMES

ARCHITECTURAL GRADUATE

Theresia believes the built environment has a massive impact on society and our lives, we spend most of our time in buildings. Therefore, why not design the best buildings that help people live the happiest and healthiest lives? Even Winston Churchill famously said, “We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us.”

Theresia is passionate about meaningful, innovative, efficient, practical, climate responsive and community strengthening design. She would love to create joyful places that combine natural biophilic elements with simple, practical yet sophisticated design tat can cater for both the needs of the people occupying the building and the environment.

Before joining Elevation, Theresia worked in the construction industry, having worked on construction sites and as a draftsman for a builder and building designer. Theresia is now working on childcare centers at Elevation Architecture.

Being passionate about community, Theresia volunteers at her church and was a youth leader, assisting with activities and social media content.
