who ARE We?



Asia grzybowska

Before settling in the UK I worked in Germany, Qatar and Poland. I am an architect, but I have also worked as a graphic designer, surveyor and photographer. I spent a couple of years working for international sport events including the Asian Games and the Olympics. Whilst working in the event industry I took part in designing city interventions, temporary structures and ‘dressing up’ of the existing buildings. I have also experience in various sectors from residential, via public realm and urban spaces to sports and education, including projects for the Royal Parks. I am experienced in user design workshops and community consultations.

At Powell Tuck Associates I am a project architect, currently running a 2M private residential project. I am also an instigator of practice social and public activities. Privately, I am a mother and a child, winter wild swimmer and yogi.

Basia flores

Hello! My name is Basia Flores.

I am an illustrator. Creative spirit from Poland. Currently living & drawing in Cracow. Illustration is my universal language. It’s a way to communicate, to show unexplained emotion that cannot be put into words. Walter Gropius said that the ‘Creation and love of beauty are elemental for the experience of happiness.’ My art is a journey between the colours, shapes and emotions. It’s a simple way to positiveness. A creation of happiness.
