This is the architect Sarah Wigglesworth.
She is known for the ground-breaking Straw Bale House, which is both her home and her architectural practice...

Sarah is not part of the ego-fuelled architectural edifices that are increasingly populating our skyline. Her buildings are on a more intimate scale, where people feel part of them and experience a tactile relationship with the space: be it a school, social housing, a community centre or a dance studio. All are given Wigglesworth’s recipe of alternative materials, sustainable technology and green integrity.

I recently recorded a revealing interview with Sarah at her office in North London. You can listen to it here.
