Alex Wallis


Alex rejoined Design Engine in 2017, having previously worked at the practice between 2010 and 2012, when he played a key role in the team delivering the award-winning John Henry Brookes and Abercrombie Buildings for Oxford Brookes University.

Alex has experience across a wide range of sectors, gained from a spell at Foster+Partners on large international mixed-use projects, reworking the interiors of the Wimbledon clubhouse while at Grimshaw Architects, and helping to shape a significant primary school expansion through modular timber construction at Hampshire County Council. 

He qualified as an architect in 2014, having studied at the Welsh School of Architecture, where he now has an ongoing role as visiting tutor and professional examiner for the Part III course.

At Design Engine, Alex has acted as project architect for a number of completed and on-site schemes, including Civic Trust-winner AUB Student Halls, a new Sixth Form centre for Berkhamsted School, and a new Headquarters for Gordon Murray Automotive. Alex also heads up the practice’s social media group, and plays a key role in Design Engine’s visualisation and marketing department.
