Miranda MacLaren


Miranda joined Morris+Company in 2012 and, after initially focusing on projects in the residential sector, now oversees a number of schemes ranging in scale and typology. She is responsible for new business and the internal operation of the practice, and has a particular interest in developing methodologies to ensure design and technical excellence across Morris+Company’s work.

Miranda runs a housing research group within the office, seeking new opportunities for pushing innovation within the sector. She has also taught an undergraduate unit at the Cass school at London Metropolitan University for a number of years, looking at new housing models to alleviate the poor quality housing offered to neglected user groups in London. Miranda sits on the Design Review Panel for Harrow and Merton, and is involved in several teaching and research groups, as well as awards judging. She has given lectures and written articles on the work of the practice.

Miranda graduated from The Bartlett School of Architecture in 2003, the Cass in 2007, and Westminster University in 2009.
