Andrea Obiol

Andrea joined Allies and Morrison in 2010 after completing her Diploma in Architecture at London Metropolitan University and became an Associate of the practice in 2017.

Since joining the practice, Andrea has worked on various projects ranging from feasibility studies to construction. She has very good experience working in residential projects and is able to negotiate their wide set of standards and various requirements as well as coordinating this information with the wider design team. During her involvement with this type of projects she has been successful in creating flexible tenure proposals in keeping with the character of the site and marketing requirements.

During the past four years, after qualifying as an architect, she has been involved in later stage projects preparing detail design and tender information proposals and has also been involved in their delivery on site. She has a proactive and practical mind and enjoys the challenges posed by these later stages where design proposals materialise. In doing so, she has developed a very good understanding of regulations and construction standards and has extended her skills to co-ordinate and develop information with a wider construction team including contractors. Her work on Kidderpore Avenue, a residential development in Hampstead for Barratt London, where she was architect during tender and construction stages for the refurbishment of the Arts and Crafts blocks has given her the opportunity to develop a strong interest and gain valuable skills towards working with historic buildings.

Other key projects that Andrea has worked on are phases 3 and 4 of Waterside Park, near the Thames Barrier where she  was particularly involved in the development of social rented units and Vauxhall Square a large mixed-use scheme comprising office and retail space, a hotel, student accommodation, a hostel, two tall residential towers and an affordable housing block.

She is currently working on White City One, a development for Stanhope for the refurbishment and re-purpose of an ex-BBC into new commercial and office space.
