Antje Saunders

Antje joined Allies and Morrison in 2007 after studying at the University of Stuttgart and Berlin University of the Arts. She completed her Masters of Arts degree with distinction in Housing and Urbanism at the Architectural Association Postgraduate School.

Building on her in-depth understanding and interest in the challenges of 21st Century urban living, she has since worked on a number of key regeneration projects, most notably the Olympic Legacy Communities Masterplan, where she was responsible for the overall masterplan co-ordination as well as the illustrative design and design guidelines for a number of legacy neighbourhoods.

Apart from her extensive experience on large and medium-scale residential and mixed-use masterplans such as the regeneration of Gascoigne Estate in Barking, the Musheireb masterplan Development Standards in Downtown Doha and East Wick Interim Use masterplan, Antje has also been project architect on the University of Lancashire’s masterplan project in Preston. This range of work has built on her understanding of the spatial and organisational relationships between strategically placed open spaces, buildings and the people using these spaces.

Antje is currently leading a large-scale residential-led redevelopment project in Hounslow, London. Focusing on the successful integration of a new neighbourhood into its existing context, the masterplan sets out a flexible structure for phased development comprising a range of building types along an integrated network of streets and open spaces.
