Practice

We have a wide network of collaborators, but it’s the three Partners – Alasdair, Siri and Khuzema – who make up the core of Collective Works.

We Start by Listening

How can you inspire your community while unlocking a challenging site? How can we help you bring clarity and sustainability to your mixed-use project? How can we enable your ambition and flair by navigating complex planning challenges?

We get excited by the potential of beautiful and responsible architecture. And we want you to feel just the same.

We love the way our buildings and spaces create unexpected moments. The relationships we form, and the social value that comes out of all our work, give us the positive energy that drives our projects.
With decades of experience between us and enough determination to see us through tough times, our small, colourful, and in some ways unconventional, studio has given each of us the confidence to do that.
Alasdair Ben Dixon

Alasdair Ben Dixon

Partner
Alasdair brings a calm and measured approach to his work. His long-held commitment to the needs of the wider community alongside clients and stakeholders has led to roles within charities & action groups. He contributed to the RIBA Ethics and Sustainable Development commission, and regularly speaks publicly on such topics.
Khuzema Hussain

Khuzema Hussain

Partner
Khuzema is excellent at finding the technical solution to a complex problem. He is unfazed by navigating the planning system even when the advice has been contradictory and the technical issues are tricky. One of his qualities we admire most is that he’s a ‘finisher’. He won’t let go until every detail is resolved.
Siri Zanelli

Siri Zanelli

Partner
Siri is brilliant at the nuts and bolts of architecture, but it is her clear-headed optimism which seems to push everything she does beyond the ordinary. Whether it is large infrastructure schemes or small log cabins, Siri always finds a way to inject just a bit more unexpected colour or texture, a bit more joy, into a project.

Architecture in the 21st Century

We’ve signed Architects Declare, a rallying cry from architects far and wide to think and work more sustainably. And with our name, Collective Works, we’ve signalled our openness to different sectors, to different ideas, and to the positive overlaps between them. We’ve opened our door to collaboration – with younger colleagues on unusual projects and events, and with other practices who appreciate our responsiveness and our human touch.

Let’s have a chat about your vision and
how we can help you realise it.

Collective Works are an architecture & design studio. Our network of professionals will create your perfect solution.
