Janna Laan Lomas

Guest

Janna founded Grain Architecture in 2015, after completing her Part II Prof Dip in Architecture at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT). She started Grain to meet a demand for building with a strong focus on designing for long-term environmental responsibility by using natural materials, and avoiding plastic and cement wherever possible. She also co-founded NBUK (Natural Building UK), which is a non-profit organisation educating public & industry about the use of natural materials in construction.

Janna is driven by the creativity of designing spaces and has been drawing houses since the age of about 6 (she loves a floor plan and problem-solving layouts!). She's passionate about beautiful buildings and gardens, and excited by opportunities for making a positive impact on lives and landscape through architecture and rural community development.
