Pippa Grayson completed both her Bachelors and Masters in Architecture degrees at the University of Nottingham, graduating in 2015. She later concluded her studies at Kingston University and is an ARB registered architect.


In 2013, Pippa spent a year working in Tianjin, China, on large scale master-planning projects and speculative public projects, including a new university campus and the conversion of large disused quarry sites to public space.

Since graduating, Pippa has worked in London on small scale residential projects, and prior to joining nimtim was working in south-west London, completing residential refurbishment and extension projects within the borough of Richmond-upon-Thames.


Throughout university, she explored architecture in both sparse rural as well as dense city landscapes, and within her final year Thesis she explored the identity of demarcated landscapes within the UK and the potential of under-sung landscapes for facilitating fast-changing forms of architecture.


Outside of architecture, Pippa has a keen interest in music, particularly in attending and participating in live concerts.



Alexandria Mackinnon completed her Masters in Architecture at the University of Cape Town in December 2015 before moving to London in April the following year.


Allie’s masters dissertation involved studying the architectural facade as an interface between the inside and the outside of public, representational buildings. Allie chose to explore this idea through the re-imagining of Parliament as the pre-eminent public building of South Africa’s democracy and the city of Cape Town.


Prior to joining nimtim, Allie worked with the Dutch-based firm Play the City in creating games as a method for collaborative urban design - using gaming as a playful way to bring top-down decision makers together with bottom-up members of society.


In 2013 Allie worked in Berlin on small to medium-sized residential refurbishments and extensions - understanding the richness and sensibilities of the existing city fabric. Throughout her studies Allie enjoyed working at a local artisan market selling fine jewellery and fun textile products.


Apart from her interest in architecture Allie is interested in many forms of art and design including pottery, surface/textile design and photography – she has recently developed her first reel of film after her trip to Iran.


Gilbert Leung completed his Bachelor's degree in architecture at the University of Bath in 2013 and he later finished his professional diploma at The Cass in 2015.


In his final year project, Gilbert looked at custom build homes for Ebbsfleet Valley as a garden city. The proposed standard modular catalogue allows occupants to enjoy the freedom of customising their homes but still maintain a cohesive architectural language throughout the masterplan. The masterplan aims to provide potential organic growth in communal hubs where activities are encouraged within shared surfaces, promoting a pedestrian-friendly living environment.


He is also passionate about contemporary art and he is currently working with paintings, photography and digital collages exploring shapes, colours and memories.

Architecture has been all Jack has wanted to do since he was a small child. Stimulated by a particular interest in the mechanics of things, he has been heavily influenced by vernacular housing, alongside a number of radical architectural collectives of the 60’s.


Jack has focused on efficient sustainable architecture, dedicating his Masters Thesis to finding real-world solutions to the housing crisis. He has since worked with Studio RHE, nHouse and Orkidstudio, as well as undertaking private commissions. He has worked on projects ranging from multi award-winning, world leading developments in structural timber, to locally sourced clay brick construction in Western Africa, as well as furniture design, installations, and house extensions in London.


Apart from architecture Jack is passionate about sailing, printmaking, and cycling. He has competed in international sailing events, is a qualified skipper, and has worked professionally as a yacht delivery crew member. Through Printmaking, Jack's work has been published in a London Drawing Group book “The Printing Ideas”, and cycling has taken him up and down mountains in England, Scotland, Wales and France.
