Autor Architecture is an international practice with offices in London and Berlin. Autor is German for author and our buildings convey the story of the area that surrounds them. We like to dream big and build pragmatically, carefully considering the needs of both the client and the neighbourhoods we work in.

We believe that the key to a successful development is the marriage of place, people and profit. Working across many different London boroughs, our work has been recognised with industry awards and local endorsements for unlocking complex sites. We have achieved a track record of 95% planning success thanks to an in-depth awareness of history and visual context. Our buildings are 14% above the average site density because they are efficiently organised and integrated into their settings.

We take our thorough research and combine it with innovative design strategies and intelligent construction methods. By embracing new technologies and approaches we are able to build for the long-term, thinking about sustainable materials and end-user experience. Our goal is to create responsive architecture that enlivens streetscapes and supports communities.

“I would strongly recommend you think of Autor as some fresh blood to urban regeneration.”
