Mirja oversees LSI Architects' work in the Higher Education sector, with her experience including delivery of over 2,550 new student residences within five schemes and a variety of new and refurbished academic buildings.
LSI Architects has an extensive portfolio of student accommodation design projects for colleges and universities, from significant new build projects to minor works infill and refurbishment schemes. We seek to provide low energy use buildings that can significantly reduce running costs, but still deliver the quality design that clients require in what is a highly competitive market.
“I first came across LSI on a project called Crome Court. They worked seamlessly and tirelessly throughout the project, which won a whole host of awards. They’re always there to encourage, to help, to lead, which is really what great Architects do. They’re friendly, they’re very approachable and that is very important. Much is spoken about people with a ‘can do’ attitude. LSI as a company have that attitude, everybody here embraces that. There’s nothing they can’t do and that gives you a great deal of confidence in the company.”
