Lucy previously worked as a researcher and designer working to get more people, particularly marginalised groups, involved in shaping where they live. Lucy’s skills during her time were in placemaking, community engagement and participatory design and her work at Transition by Design focuses on housing and homelessness.
At Transition by Design Lucy led Homemaker Oxford, a grant-funded action research programme looking at how empty and underused space might help tackle housing need in Oxford. She led the Open House project. Lucy worked closely with the architecture team to develop research-informed, and participatory build projects, most notably the design of Floyds Row, Oxford's accommodation and assessment hub for people rough sleeping.
