About What if: projects Ltd:
What if: projects Ltd is an architecture practice based in Hackney and was founded by Ulrike Steven and Gareth Morris in 2005. Our work is focused in inner city areas and we develop ideas and strategies for more sustainable urban environments. We investigate neglected, forgotten and unloved spaces and develop opportunities these places can offer to communities and the city. Proposals for change are based on a detailed understanding of an environment and the people that inhabit it. Essential to the development and delivery of our projects is the engagement with local communities.
