Ana Alonso Albarracin

Ana joined Studio Egret West as an architectural assistant in October 2016, and has since been involved in a number of mixed-use and residential-led schemes. A skilled artist, she has brought her talents to several of the Studio’s competition submissions, including an exhibition for the V&A museum.

One of Ana’s most prominent projects has been Erith Quarry, a sustainable housing development on a 20Ha disused quarry site within the Thames Gateway. The consented hybrid planning application includes up to 600 new homes and a Primary School, embedded within extensive ecological landscapes and public realm. Ana is currently contributing to a new residential town in Essex which aims to amplify the landscape, with an emphasis on community well-being.

Ana previously worked at Marks Barfield Architects in London, and at Picado de Blas Arquitectos and Luis Urculo Studio in Madrid. She studied at the University of Edinburgh and the Bartlett School of Architecture, where her final year project, Sweet Conciliation, explored the roles of women as users and producers of architecture. The work she created for this project was recently exhibited at the Royal Academy's 250th Summer Exhibition, curated by Grayson Perry.
