Karakusevic Carson Architects

Ailbhe Reynolds


Ailbhe has a strong track record of delivering community-driven, local authority housing projects on complex sites in London, working with residents to drive projects forward and create homes and neighbourhoods which fulfil local need. She most recently led the second phase of the Colville Estate for Hackney Council, a new mixed-tenure community of 209 homes, landscaped public spaces and new public routes. The first part of this second phase was completed in 2019 and won a 2020 Civic Trust Award. The project was also shortlisted for the RIBA Neave Brown Award for social housing. 

Ailbhe is currently developing a pilot infill project for Croydon Council will transform a series of former council depots into sites for affordable housing in the borough. She previously led the RIBA National award winning Dujardin Mews for Enfield Council, the first social housing built in the borough for around 40 years. Built on a constrained plot of remediated brownfield land, the design utilises a modified mews street to create high-quality family homes and establish permeability through the site. The project has become an example of intelligent, council-led design and delivery in London.

Ailbhe joined the practice in 2012, having previously delivered projects including the notable refurbishment of the Middlesex Street Community Library and Housing Estate in the City of London for the City Corporation.
