Our People

Karakusevic Carson Architects

Sam McDermott

Associate Director


Sam works collaboratively with local authority clients and residents to re-shape and fully utilise challenging council-owned sites across London. He is currently leading a series of residential-led, mixed-use projects for Brent Council in the South Kilburn Regeneration Area and the Wembley Housing Zone which have evolved through an engaged co-design process to form different masterplan scenarios and refine designs.

Sam is also leading Bury Street West, a project of 50 low-energy suburban homes and public open space in Enfield which will complete in 2022. Additional projects include Jervis Court, a mixed-use residential building in Barking and Dagenham, a series of build-to-rent affordable housing projects for Newham Council.

Before joining the studio in 2012, Sam led a masterplan for the regeneration of the Aberfeldy Estate in East London at Casey Fierro Architects. He is a regular guest critic at the Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University.
