Ash Sakula Architects
Cany Ash is a co-founder of Ash Sakula Architects, one of the UK’s leading housing and regeneration architects. The practice was Supreme Winner in the 2016 Housing Design Award for the Malings, a new riverside neighbourhood in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. In 2017 its 475 home Wickside project was Overall Winner in the New London Architecture Awards. The practice is also working in Slovakia on village regeneration in Bernolákovo, and the creation of a major town extension in Malacky. Alongside its architectural work, Ash Sakula has pursued ‘constructive propaganda’ through a series of projects captured in short films and websites. Collective Custom Build, Adaptable Neighbourhoods and the Meanwhile London Caravanserai project all champion people and their livelihoods against a backdrop of thoughtless land assembly for development, and demolition of worthwhile structures. Cany is currently a visiting professor at the Polimi, Milan and serves on a number of Design Review Panels.
