More about me

Anabel is a practising architect and urban designer with over 20 years of international experience, both in the public and private sectors, and recently with a focus on London. Her understanding of global urban trends together with a sensitive, analytical and innovative approach are key to her work in different environments and cultural contexts. She has developed, led and delivered projects ranging from complex mixed-use building transformations to strategic regeneration frameworks. Whilst she has mostly worked for private sector clients, she pride herself on working collaboratively with the public sector to achieve better designs and project outcomes. Across her work, she is able to comprehend and develop projects from masterplan scale to detailed design scale.

The combination of teaching and practice allows her to bridge knowledge across both ways, which she deeply enjoys.
