Senior Interior Designer, Gilling Dod Architects
Laura Glithero is Senior Interior Designer at Gilling Dod Architects and has worked extensively in the field of healthcare design for over 7 years, after graduating from the University of Bolton with a First Class Honours degree in Interior Design.
Laura has a real passion for enhancing healthcare environments, with a view to supporting recovery for a diverse range of end users. She is responsible for the interior design of multi-million pound projects across the UK, delivering award winning projects in both acute and mental health sectors. However, Laura’s particular interest lies in pathway specific design for mental health, such as designing for sufferers of Dementia and those on the Autistic spectrum.
It is this area of research that Laura is keen to develop and make accessible for a wider audience, defeating the stigma of mental health and aiming for a culture in which inclusive design is a consideration on all major public projects across the UK. Laura also has a passion for educating, working part time as a guest lecturer and continuing to support University courses in Interior Design, whilst in her spare time developing more traditional illustration and painting skills.
