Antje Saunders


A key contributor to the practice’s work in urbanism, Antje has played an important role in large mixed use and housing-led masterplans including the Olympic Legacy and Lampton Road as well as several estate regeneration projects. She co-leads the Masterplanning Group and provides ongoing client support for the King’s Cross Masterplan.

Recently, Antje has been working on the regeneration of Fosters Estate in Hendon, a co-design masterplan that explores ways of providing much-needed additional affordable homes within an existing estate, creating design proposals in close collaboration with, rather than for, the local community. Her estate regeneration experience ranges in scale, from the 16.5-hectare Gascoigne Estate in Barking to small-scale infill projects such as Fairbanks Road in Tottenham Hale.

From Germany, she completed her masters in Housing and Urbanism at the Architecture Association and studied at the University of Stuttgart and Berlin University of the Arts. She has been an external critic at Cardiff University, the Architectural Association and the University of Central Lancashire.

Away from the studio, Antje is a governor at King’s Cross Academy, chairs the Camden Broadway Conservation Area Advisory Committee and plays cello in the Camden Symphony Orchestra.
