Kevin Allsop Architects

Kevin Allsop Architects was founded by Kevin Allsop in October 2015.

As a practice we are interested in the design opportunities which develop out of a carefully considered response to the ambitions of a client and the context it is set within. Context is understood to encompass the physical, historical, cultural and economic dimensions of a project. The practice also has ongoing interest in materiality and how this can be used to form the foundations for the narrative drive of a project.

Underpinning the practice is the belief in architecture as a professional discipline which embraces issues of procurement, sustainability, planning and construction as part of a holistic approach to creative design. We have experience in a wide range of building projects from interesting small scale domestic projects, to gallery exhibitions, to large commercial developments. Working closely with a client, we are committed to providing a comprehensive service that fulfils the potential of a project brief.
