Alfredo Caraballo


A design leader for the practice, Alfredo works across our range of projects, from conceptual stages through to completion. He enjoys the dialogues that come from the design process and has particular interests in the sensitive densification of urban sites and in large, complex masterplans.

Alfredo is the partner in charge of several of our international projects. These include four projects in India, a new residential quarter on the edge of the old city of Beirut and the redevelopment of the Expo Site in Milan for Lendlease. He undertook an urban study for the prime Midtown Manhattan site at Penn Station for Vornado Realty Trust and has led the award-winning masterplan for new high-density sustainable city in Oman. A central voice for our Toronto work, he is currently designing several new neighbourhoods in this fast-growing city; from a 11-ha post-industrial waterfront site in Toronto to the redevelopment of an industrial site into mixed-use transport-led community, Beltline Yards.

In London, he led the design for Keybridge, a hybrid residential-led development incorporating a new school. And he has been involved in the practice’s work at Canada Water, developing the design for Plot A1 containing the tallest tower in the scheme. Other schemes have included One Vine Street, part of our masterplan for the Crown Estate at Regent Street and plans for the extension for Westfield White City.

Alfredo participates widely in academic and professional debates on architecture and the city. He taught for several years at Kingston University and has held lectureships and critic positions in universities in the UK and Latin America and lectured in the US and Asia. He is co-chair of the International Council of the Van Alen Institute in New York and sits on the Lambeth Design Review Panel.

A native of Caracas, Alfredo studied at the Universidad Central de Venezuela and London Metropolitan University. Passionate about architectural representation, he enjoys mixing techniques from drawing by hand to 3D modelling. His favourite cities in the world are London and Florence.
