Frances Holliss is an architect and academic at the Cass School of Architecture, London Metropolitan University. She is an expert on the architecture of home-based work, completing a doctorate in 2007 (The workhome… a new building type?), which she was funded to develop and disseminate 2009-11 (www.theworkhome.com). Holliss speaks internationally, and has written widely, on the subject. Her book ‘Beyond Live/Work: the Architecture of Home-based Work’ was published by Routledge in 2015. Concerned about the negative impact policy and regulatory frameworks have on design for home-based work, she is a co-author of OECD ‘Policy Brief for Home-based Business’ (2018, in press).
