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







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 architects in design 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.



Architect MArch RIBA


Laura is an experienced Italian architect, member of the National Order of Architects of Cagliari (Italy) since 1997 and  ‘RIBA Corporate Member’ since 2001. She has evolved as architect over the course of last 20 years having worked under 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 architect 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.
