Alastair Warburton


Alastair joined Allies and Morrison for the timeless elegance and rigour of the practice’s buildings and our reputation in urbanism. In his work, he has been particularly drawn to housing as it is the building type that most people relate to, and urban design, because of the strategic and political aspects of the work.

He was project architect for the residential element of Msheireb Downtown Doha, responsible for the development of the concept design and its delivery. Similarly, he has been the project architect for a new residential project in Woolwich that connects the Royal Arsenal’s historic buildings with the town centre. Alastair has also worked on urban masterplans of ambitious scale, both at home and abroad: Irfan, a new city in Oman, and a mixed-use development currently in planning at Brent Cross, which will deliver 7,500 homes, workspaces, a hospital and new railway station; and for the Olympic Legacy, he helped to create design codes for the post games development in east London.

From Chester originally, he trained at Sheffield University, Oxford Brookes and Westminster.
