Romy Berlin

Director, Graphics

As head of graphics, Romy draws her motivation from supporting architects in communicating their ideas effectively. Having trained as an architect herself at Bauhaus University Weimar, an institution known to merge art, science and technical studies, she has developed a keen eye for the essence of a project which she then highlights through clear and crisp design.

In her advice on projects as diverse as the visual guidance of competition documents to the representation of completed buildings in publications, she translates her appreciation for the modernist roots and heritage of Allies and Morrison into a coherent identity for the practice. Romy is part of the practice’s Communications Team, where she brings in her unique perspective to shape the studio’s exhibitions, events and photography. She has also helped design signage and branding for a number of our buildings.

Her favourite project, the Royal Observatory, stands out through its contemporary, yet careful approach to a listed building. At the office, Romy enjoys the tranquillity of the roof terrace in its early morning hours, but in her spare time she appreciates the eccentricity of her new home in London.
