Francesca Ghavami-Milnes

Francesca is interested in how spaces can affect how people behave and interact with each other and how good quality design can transform this experience.

At Howells, Francesca works on a macro master planning scale right down to the micro interior details on a selection of high-profile projects, including the RIBA-award-winning Moss House for University College Birmingham, Two Chamberlain Square and One Centenary Way at Paradise Birmingham, Port Loop and Kidbrooke, London.

Francesca is committed to mentoring and sharing knowledge with the younger generation. She is a key member of our annual Summer School design review panel and leads interior design workshops to provide encouragement, advice and inspiration to the young participants. She hosts a work experience placement with Birmingham City University second-year students and has worked with the “I Can Be” charity to offer a career insight to girls at primary school.

Before joining us, Francesca studied architecture at Oxford Brookes University and worked for a specialist workplace interior design practice. Outside of Howells, Francesca is a member of the BCO’s NextGen Midlands Committee and regularly attends built environment events.
