Jenna Fife has joined Falconer Chester Hall’s Liverpool studio from Sheppard Robson’s London office.
Fife, who will spend three months at FCH’s London studio before relocating to Liverpool full-time, will work as a project architect specialising in the practice’s student accommodation and residential projects.
She has been with Sheppard Robson for around five years and has also worked for Purcell.
FCH now employs 75 staff in its Liverpool studio, which is responsible for designing some of the city’s largest developments, including the 39-storey Infinity for Elliot Group, and Moda Living’s The Lexington on Liverpool Waters, which stretches to 34 storeys and is being built by BCEGI.
FCH managing director Adam Hall said: “Jenna brings first rate experience and creativity to bear on a key market sector for us. The London residential market is tightly regulated and her eye for detail and design rigour are real positives that come from working in the capital. We’re delighted to have her on board.”
Fife added: “Liverpool has changed enormously since I’ve been away and the opportunity to join the practice that is in the thick of the city’s re-development was a major attraction.
“My wider experience designing residential and hotel projects also fits in neatly with FCH’s workload and I’m looking forward to contributing as much as I can.”
