Alexandra Woods

position · Architect, associate

qualifications · m.arch, b.arch

Growing up in the southern highlands and on the NSW south coast, Alexandra relished her access to the expansive Australian bush. At Anderson Architecture, she draws on these memories to maximise connection with nature through design, and to amplify a sense of spaciousness wherever possible. Architecture, for Alexandra, is an opportunity to improve wellbeing through a deft balancing act between the built and natural environments.

When she is not working at Anderson Architecture, Alexandra tutors design and construction subjects at her alma mater, the University of Technology, Sydney. Teaching has deepened her interest in architecture as therapy, and one day she hopes to pursue further study into how advances in design and planning can improve physical and psychological health.
