Annabel Brown Architect

Annabel BrownAbout ABA

Annabel Brown is an Architect based in Essex. 

The practice's work is predominantly in the South East of England and London, with occasional projects overseas.

The ethos of the practice is that anyone's life can be improved by good, considered design.  Design is discussed in a simple manner to enable people to engage with the process, and to become co-designers of their own environments.

The practice has a particular interest in working with people to modify their homes for the elderly or for young children.  Recent projects have included the conversion of an outbuilding for an elderly lady with Parkinsons, and a family home for a mother of two girls in the Sussex countryside.  Both projects have won Design Awards.

Other projects have included adaptations to a number of listed buildings, for which Annabel has enjoyed researching the origins and context.

In 2010 Annabel won funding through the Royal Society of Arts catalyst fund to encourage positive social impact.   The project, Chelmsford Young Urban Explorers, engages young people in exploring and making design decisions about their local urban environment.  This project has been run through schools, youth charities and a local college, and has received national coverage through RSA publications. In January 2013 the project was published as the 'Big Idea' in the RSA newsletter. 

Annabel has a First Class degree in Architecture from Cambridge University, and a Distinction from the University of Liverpool.  She was awarded the Charles Reilly Medal by Liverpool University in 1997 for design excellence in her thesis work, and was elected as a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2010.  She has taught design at Cambridge and Liverpool Universities, and at University College, London.  She is currently a part-time studio tutor at Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford.
