Martha Titcombe

Architectural Designer

Martha Titcombe, our Architectural Designer, has a degree in Interior Design from The University of the West of England.

She joined us from the BBC TV Series ‘DIY SOS: The Big Build’, where she had an exciting time as a Design Assistant, organising planning applications, preparing drawings, sourcing materials and managing site teams, within the tight deadlines and high standards of a TV production. She balances architectural skills with an interest in history, plus strengths in writing and graphic design: she was the editor of the college architectural magazine, and then took those skills across to Historic England, where she worked on guidance documents and edited their news magazine, Historic England Advice.

Key Skills

  • Architectural Design
  • Proficiency in AutoCad, Revit, Sketchup, V-ray, Photoshop, Indesign, Rhino and Keyshot
  • Project management
  • Writing and editing
  • Graphic design
  • Architectural history worldwide
  • Hand drawing

During Martha’s degree course she spent an entire year living and working in Istanbul. So she’s at home in a multicultural environment, and prepared for the challenge of working with clients a long way from England!

  • The team, led by Carla McKenzie, were meticulous in every detail. They modelled the cleaning requirements to deliver the optimum solution for the facilities across EMEA, and really took time to understand the culture of our business. I have no hesitation in recommending MYA and its team – they are dedicated and innovative, and always go the extra mile.

  • Carla and her team have broad experience in the industry. Apart from being very supportive in inventing (new) concepts, they also make use of their many years of experience when implementing these concepts. Their ultimate goal is to let people enjoy honest and good food.

  • They are brave enough to challenge others in pursuit of the ultimate solution, whether it be behind the scenes with kitchen flow and catering management, or front-of-house service and design.

  • If all companies who serve the independent school sector had your breadth of vision and openness of mind, I have little doubt that the sector would be a richer and more exciting place to be.

  • During the negotiation process, Carla’s knowledge and expertise enabled our company to achieve a very strong commercial outcome, and some significant savings were yielded from the exercise.
