Miranda Webster

Miranda is a partner of the firm cameronwebster architects, which was founded in 2005, following 10 years of working in London with notable practices MJP, DSDHA and Allies and Morrison.

The work of cameronwebster architects concentrates on manipulating form to harness the potential of natural light to transform spaces, and the refined detailing of traditional construction in a simple manner without rhetoric, that lifts it out of the ordinary. (Mies van der Rohe’s dictum that “architecture is the art of building” is considered an appropriate approach).

Cameronwebster see every project as a unique challenge, with close liason with client requirements from conception through to completion, delivering an end result which exceeds the clients expectations. Most recently awarded an RIAS Award in 2015 for “The Highland Steading” in Perthshire.

Miranda teaches part-time at the Mackintosh School of Architecture in the final year of study. Teaching helps the practice keep in touch with research into current issues and new and imaginative approaches to architecture and urban design.

She is currently developing a teaching tool and piece of research called “Learning Through Drawing” which aims to understand students working methodology in comparison to that in practice.

“The European city” is another piece of research currently being compiled to document work carried out following student study trips to cities in Europe and which will allow a comparative study between different cities to be made.
