Johanna Coste-Buscayret

Consultant, Paris

Johanna brings a distinctive blend of creativity, innovation and architectural responses that will best lead to positive urban outcomes.

Previously an Associate Director of the practice and currently based in Paris, Johanna is building on our recent shortlisting on high profile competitions such as Maine-Montparnasse. An architect who has grown up with the practice in London, she applies our pragmatic, sustainable and context-led approach at various scales of masterplanning and architecture.

She combines an experience in the regeneration of industrial land and mixed use developments in the UK with her grounding in France’s future aspirations for citymaking. With multi-faceted skills across the range of project conception to delivery, Johanna collaborates with clients and design teams, between Allies and Morrison in London and now in Paris.

She worked on the London Olympic Legacy Masterplan and acted as project architect for the careful conversion of the mid-century Commonwealth Institute into the new home for London's Design Museum. She also led the regeneration masterplan for Station Hill in Reading town centre, to include two new retail, grade A offices, leisure and residential units and transforming the existing Garrard Street car park. When Allies and Morrison was invited for the competition for a high-profile mixed-use site redevelopment in Paris, she was the project director. More recently, Johanna worked on the delivery of 900 built to rent apartments in the new area of Nine Elms in London, to be completed by 2024.

Johanna is from Montpellier and studied at the School of Architecture, Paris Malaquais. She joined us having previously worked for practices in London, the Netherlands and France.
