Abigail Batchelor


Abigail is a leading masterplanner in the UK with significant experience coordinating large-scale projects with interdisciplinary teams on complex procurement paths. Her expertise includes the development of major projects around the city fringes. She is currently leading Broadwater Farm, a major estate renewal for the London Borough of Haringey, and Selby Centre Urban Village, the reconfiguration and connection of two urban sites to deliver new homes, sports provision and a community centre, also for the local council. Both schemes are being led with close involvement with residents.

Abigail played a pivotal role in the early phases of the Meridian Water Masterplan in Enfield, a major public-sector led project that will transform an 82-hectare brownfield site into a district of 10,000 homes and civic infrastructure. Prior to joining the practice in 2014, Abigail was previously an Associate at S333 Architecture + Urbanism in Amsterdam and London.

In 2017 Abigail Batchelor and Paul Karakusevic co-authored ‘Social Housing: Definitions and Design Exemplars’, which was published by the RIBA. The success of the book was followed by an exhibition of the same name at RIBA in London and recently at the AIA Center for Architecture in New York. In addition, Abigail is a member of the London Borough of Camden Design Review Panel. She also lectures at the Architectural Association and the London Metropolitan University.
