Artur Carulla

Partner

Artur leads the strategic direction of projects across the entire range of our work, with a focus on large urban regeneration masterplans. He is also our go-to for our many projects in the neighbourhood.

At Elephant & Castle, he led a team designing a major new mixed-use project anchored by a new campus for the London College of Communication. It will be an important high-density scheme, incorporating one of London’s busiest transport interchanges and a mix of housing at different scales and types. Elsewhere in Southwark, Artur has worked on a hybrid live-work block at Mandela Way and contributed to proposals for the future of Old Kent Road.

In his early days with us, he was an architect on Bankside 2 and 3, and he continues to remain involved in the design of new buildings in the immediate vicinity, from a small housing project on Ewer Street now onsite to the Crane Building, a high-grade office building two doors down from our studios. Artur has led projects where we have acted as both architect and developer, such as the extension of those studios, which expanded our presence in Bankside from that of a single building to a small urban campus, as well as a residential tower in its vicinity.

Outside of the office, Artur takes an interest in wider debates about the city, society and architecture’s place in them, delivering talks and participating regularly in forums ranging from those held by New London Architecture to the World Economic Forum. He also sits on Southwark’s Design Review Panel.

Artur grew up in Barcelona and gained his qualifications at ETSAB Barcelona School of Architecture and the Architectural Association in London, followed by further studies at Columbia University and the University of California, Berkeley.
