Paul Karakusevic, director of Karakusevic Carson Architects, established the practice with the ambition of improving the quality of social housing in London. The focus for the practice is the delivery of successful and sustainable neighbourhoods, mixed-tenure housing and civic buildings that reflect both their unique, local sense of place and the real needs of the communities involved. 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. Abigail is an associate at Karakusevic Carson. An architect and urbanist who trained at the University of Sheffield and London School of Economics, she is a housing specialist with over 15 years' experience in the UK and the Netherlands. She has taught the Housing and Urbanism masters at the Architectural Association and is a lecturer at London Metropolitan University. Abigail is particularly interested in the domestic realm in relation to development and the meanings of place within a globalised market.
