It is always a pleasure to welcome back former students and we are delighted to host a talk by Kristofer Adelaide (School of Architecture alumnus, 2009). Kristofer Adelaide Architecture (KA–A) was established in 2016 and is formed of a diverse range of architects, an artist, and accounts and management team. They are a young BAME led practice based in South London. KA–A employs a diverse team of ARB registered Architects, Designers, Architectural Assistants and a BIM Coordinator. They share resources with other architects when required as part of the London Architects Group and Paradigm networks, promoting BAME representation in the built environment.
KA—A have developed an excellent reputation, obtaining difficult planning consents and successfully delivering projects across London and the South East. These consents have varied from small extensions and alterations in conservation areas, through to new build and multi-unit schemes. Our clients have been a mixture of private residential and medium scale developer led schemes. The practice has recently developed – the Architecture for (the) Reasonably Ordinary (A.F.R.O) House – A concept dwelling, that uses modular construction to satisfy high housing demand, with quality manufacturing, working toward a zero-carbon and passive design standard. Inspired by the Garden Cities movement, this initiative seeks to provide affordable housing in a flexible, scalable way to meet local demand.
In October KA–A were awarded RIBA London practice of the month, and the practice were recently one of Seven practices shortlisted to pitch ideas for post-pandemic housing that addresses the needs of young people to a panel led by residential developer HUB. In August 2020 they were one of six practices selected for the Brick by Brick – housing infill project in Croydon, working in partnership with the Stephen Lawrence Trust.
