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 Master 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 project, 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 Msheireb masterplan Development Standards in Downtown Doha and King’s Cross Central, Antje has also been project architect on the University of Lancashire’s masterplan project in Preston and a large-scale residential-led redevelopment project in Lampton Road, Hounslow. 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 number of projects ranging from early stage competitions to detail design. She brings to the practice a passion and intellectual curiosity for both architecture and urban design and plays an important role when many of our new projects come forward given her cross over between architectural projects and larger masterplans.
