Paul Karakusevic established Karakusevic Carson Architects to improve
the quality of public housing in the UK after nearly 40 years of neglect. As
such, Paul’s focus continues to be the delivery of successful and sustainable
neighbourhoods, social and mixed-tenure housing and civic buildings that
reflect their local sense of place and the genuine needs of the communities
He has pioneered an approach to engagement and consultation that is both meaningful and sensitive, creating a climate of trust and openness with clients, resident groups and delivery teams that enables projects to progress successfully and achieve the outcomes of the highest quality. His contribution is strategic insight, a rigorous approach to architectural excellence and an in-depth knowledge of housing and design.
In addition to his nationally and internationally recognised experience with the practice, Paul is a Design Advisor to the HCA/GLA, Urban Design London and Design Council/CABE and lends his experience to audits, critiques and review and awards panels of major initiatives and projects across the UK. Paul has been selected as a Mayor’s Design Advocate, joining a panel of architecture and design experts who have been selected by the Mayor of London to provide design guidance to City Hall and local councils.
