Laure studied both architecture and art history in France before completing a Masters in Conservation of the Built Environment. In Montreal, she worked as a research assistant for the Canada Research Chair on Built Heritage, and completed works for heritage and other public bodies, including the City of Montreal, Heritage Montreal and the Commission Scolaire de Montreal.
Laure joined Simpson & Brown in 2016. Recent projects include major contributions to the conservation plan for Loudoun Castle and its designed landscape, East Ayrshire, and a statement of significance for Bannockburn House, Stirlingshire. Because of her international profile and varied background, she works on a very wide range of projects, from small vernacular buildings to large industrial estates, writing detailed conservation plans as well as concise and accessible interpretation texts.
She is a keen landscape and architectural photographer and takes regular training in photography. She uses her skills on site to make comprehensive photographic surveys and to produce high-quality illustrated documents.
