About Us

The role of the architect has evolved significantly in recent years.

In the past, architects were often seen as the sole creators of a building, responsible for everything from the initial design to the construction and finishing touches.

However, today's architects operate more like directors of a movie or an orchestra, leading and coordinating a diverse team of specialists to ensure that the project is delivered to the highest possible standard.

From engineers and scientists to planners, economists, politicians, and entrepreneurs, the modern architect is a master collaborator, bringing together the best minds from a range of disciplines to create buildings that are sustainable, functional and beautiful.

In this way, the role of the architect has become more holistic and multidisciplinary, reflecting the complex and multifaceted nature of the built environment in the 21st century.

At AB Architects, we value the diverse and complex nature of the built environment and as such, we don't believe in limiting ourselves to a single house style, specialism, or building type.

While we may have experience in certain areas, we constantly strive to push ourselves and take on new challenges, wherever they may be.

Our work is constantly evolving as a reflection of this open and adaptable approach.

ESG & Sustainability

Our holistic approach to sustainability extends beyond the impact of a building on its environment to address people’s health and wellbeing, and creating inclusive, resilient social communities.

We go to great lengths to study and understand the local context, heritage and natural environment in order to formulate well-informed design solutions and foster social interaction and engagement.

We are committed to ensuring that every project, large or small, does seamlessly become part of the environment itself with the minimum carbon footprint as possible.
