Alison Brooks Architects is recognised as one of Britain's leading "new generation" architects.
ABA's design approach is intensely site and client specific, drawing from the broader cultural context of each project to produce highly inventive work that communicates with a wide audience.
Described as "cross-fertilization", this approach has generated an award-winning body of work, noted for its inspired manipulation of space, inventive use of materials, and profound emotional and sensory environments.
After the Practice's early success in commercial work with the 2000 completion of the Atoll Hotel, Helgoland, ABA has combined the production of award-winning experimental houses with research and development in larger scale housing and urban design. This has led to successful team collaborations on significant housing and mixed use developments such as Accordia Cambridge, Central Milton Keynes West One and Liverpool's Great George Street for Urban Splash. The practice has also teamed up independently with developers for integrated master plan and housing schemes such as the South Chase development in Newhall. ABA has recently been selected as one of the architectural practices who will be designing the Athletes' Village at the heart of the 2012 Olympic Games site in Stratford.
ABA is receiving growing international recognition for its work, representing Britain at the 2004 Sao Paolo Biennale of Architecture and the Pan-American Biennale in Ecuador.
Since its inception in 1996, the practice has won or been a finalist in fourteen architectural competitions and has won twelve awards for architectural quality. ABA is committed to excellence in all aspects of practice, design, quality, communication, teamwork and project delivery.
