Karakusevic Carson Architects

Karen Scurlock

Associate Director

Karen combines strong design and technical skills with a sound knowledge of project procurement. She has over 25 years’ experience delivering buildings of exceptional quality on difficult urban sites through all RIBA stages, including complex mixed-use refurbishment projects such as the award-winning Faircharm Creative Quarter on Deptford Creek and The Record Hall in Holborn. 

Karen also works on local authority led housing projects and has delivered schemes for the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, a 100 home scheme in Stratford and a large estate renewal project in Brent. She is currently leading our work with the London Borough of Lewisham on a large-scale housing project in New Cross which is being developed as an exemplar scheme within the Borough. Karen is an appointed panel member of the OPDC Place Review Group, formed of recognised practitioners who are helping to shape the future of Old Oak and Park Royal in London. 

Karen joined the practice in 2012 and became Associate Director in 2014. She was previously a Senior Architect at AHMM, leading projects including the award-winning Raines Court modular housing scheme for the Peabody Trust and a healthcare centre in Kentish Town which was a finalist for the Stirling Prize in 2009.
