“Nothing, let alone architecture, happens in a vacuum.”

WHO WE ARE
 

WHAT WE BELIEVE IN

 

WHAT WE WANT TO ACHIEVE

 

Alpex Architecture is a young practice with an international education and experience. Having evolved from Alpex Architecture & Engineering and IDP Construction Ltd we continue to practice our core values that are intertwined with our ambition.

As designers in architecture and construction we recognise that our responsibility is inextricably bound to the physical and human environment. Our work is not an intervention into the built environment, but implicitly aware of its context, place and continuity within it. We consider architecture, not as a collection of materials combined in situ, but material as holding the capacity to constitute presence of space.

From masterplanning to design, from tender to construction, Alpex Architecture offers a comprehensive architectural service. Design and construction are consistently maintained in a collaboration and dialogue from the departure of a project to its conclusion. Ensuring both design and construction are simultaneously achieved to the highest of standards. Over time we have forged longstanding relationships with other professionals and collaborators – exemplified by the co-founding of Alpex Architecture – whose contributions assure we maintain our capacity to transcend the parameters of our practice.

LAURA PETRUSO
IMG_5919.jpg

Laura graduated in architecture from the Polytechnic of Milan, after joining the National Order of Architects of Cagliari (Italy) became an ‘RIBA Corporate Member’ in 2001. Over the course of her professional experience she worked for architects of international fame like Massimiliano Fuksas in Rome, Norman Foster and KPF (Kohn Pedersen & Fox) in London.

Laura has been working as a London based independent professional since 2009 becoming Founder and Company Director of Alpex Architecture in 2010, which gained RIBA Chartered Practice accreditation in 2012.

In 2009 she started a long term collaboration with contractor Ian Patterson, as both sharing same target to create amazing architectural spaces, applying the faith that "simplicity pays back."

In her view architecture is elemental, where light, air, stone and warmth form its components that create a quality of space essential for its experience and good living. Clear form, clean line, pure geometry and the attentive shaping of light characterise Laura’s means of arriving to successful design.
