Annelie Kops


Annelie joined Penoyre & Prasad in 2006 and was made an Associate in 2017.

Specialising in workspace, learning environments and creative art spaces, she has worked on a number of large-scale projects, including the extension to the Grade II listed New Theatre Royal in Portsmouth with a new performing arts centre for the University of Portsmouth, and the Faculty of Creative & Cultural Industries building for the University of Portsmouth.

Most recently she has lead the design for the Anna Freud Centre, a large new build and refurbishment project in central London, for the charity who provides services for children and families with mental health problems. The building which is currently under construction will provide specialist therapy and teaching spaces, a conference centre and workspace for the charity, as well as a specialist school they have founded.

Annelie is a visionary designer with a strong interest in her clients needs, and the experience to help them develop an inspiring and future-proof design brief. With a thorough approach and a passion for detail, she has lead the design of several projects from inception to completion, and knows what is required to achieve an exceptional result.

Prior to joining Penoyre & Prasad, Annelie gained experience in several practices in Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Berlin, and has been Project Architect for a number of exhibition and event architecture projects.

Annelie studied Architecture at the Technical University of Berlin and spent a year as an exchange student at Delft University of Technology. She later studied Architectural History at the Bartlett School, UCL.

Alongside her work at Penoyre & Prasad, Annelie has been teaching at a number of institutions and lead an undergraduate unit in Architecture at the University of Greenwich.

She is also a member of MUSARC, one of the UK’s most progressive choral ensembles. The choir explores performance and composition in relation to the creative process and investigates listening in the context of society, architecture and the city, and performs reguarly.
