about

I’m an architect based in the West Midlands, UK. I live with my family in a self-build labour of love called home4self – a slightly idiosyncratic experiment in architecture, construction and materials that won a few awards, although the neighbours probably still don’t know what to make of it.

You can contact me via rob@annable.co.uk or find me in the usual places, such as twitter and instagram.

architecture + teaching

At Axis Design Architects we specialise in homes and community-based projects and have played a role in improving social housing, public consultation and environmental design in the region since the 1980s.

As a visiting tutor to the Birmingham School of Architecture, I have taught across the undergraduate and postgraduate program and I’m currently assisting with Level 4 and 6 design studios.

research + interests

I grew up during the birth of the Personal Computer, the launch of the Space Shuttle and creation of the WWW so my personal interests outside architecture tend to have a science, technology and computing bias.

I’m currently engaged in reading and discussion around the space industry, interested in particular in the future of space habitation, closed-loop systems and materials science.

    I once worked in 16 Carlisle Street, Soho in offices I shared with Architectual publishers – they moved out and amongst the ‘junk’ they left me to dispose of was a beutiful pen and ink sketch, which I kept.

    It is of Sloane Square and signed by Gordon Cullen. I found you when searching the web regarding his life – which I often do in quiete moments. Your drawing so remind me of the drawing I having hanging here.
