Nairita’s passion lies in the iconography of historic buildings and spaces, and accommodating new interventions within that context

Motivated by creative design solutions, Nairita has a contemporary approach towards conservation, encouraging modern designs and construction solutions to achieve compatible uses.

Nairita comes from a strong public sector background, having worked in three different local authorities across England. After finishing her M.Sc from Newcastle University, she has worked on the adaptation and conversion of listed buildings, strategic housing and infrastructure projects within sensitive historic landscapes alongside delivering HLF funded schemes, high street regeneration, Urban Characterisation Studies and Conservation Area Appraisals & Management Plans.

At Haringey, she was the sole conservation officer during a time when the borough witnessed a significant growth in development sites. Here she advised on a number of large scale applications, including Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Clarendon Gasworks , in support of sustainable development. Along with architects, planners and other specialists, she worked closely with Historic England, planning committee members, local councillors and neighbourhood groups; presenting at stakeholder meetings, and public talks including NLA.

Nairita is a member of Historic England Advisory Committee and Havering Design Panel.
