Beth Stevens

Beth is a South African registered architect, who holds a Bachelor of Architecture and Masters in Architecture (with distinction) from the University of Cape Town; where she was awarded the prize for the best final year student in Architecture. Her background working on cultural buildings and projects in South Africa and the United Kingdom brings a strong interest in narrative design to the studio.

Before joining Openstudio she worked for Metaphor, as the principal designer for the Voice & Vote exhibition in Westminster Hall commemorating 100 years of women’s suffrage in the United Kingdom. She also worked as part of the team delivering a new masterplan for the Science Museum, as well a new cultural hub in Tunbridge Wells, along with Purcell Architects.

Ahead of registering as an architect in South Africa Beth worked as part of a team at the Johannesburg-based design practice, Office 24|7. Here she worked predominantly in the cultural and high-end residential sector, gaining experience in cultural masterplanning, landscape design, and alterations to heritage buildings.
