Angie Pool

Founding Director , Atelier de Linde

Angie Pool is a highly accomplished architect with over 20 years international experience in the industry. After achieving her degree in architecture from the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa, Angie spent four years gaining experience with a developer before founding Dzelik Architecture in 2002, specialising in residential architecture for private, gated communities and eco estates. She consulted on Unique Restaurants and boutique hotels throughout Southern Africa and co-designed repurposed container pods for low-cost housing projects.   After emigrating to the UK in 2011, Angie began consulting on residential projects throughout London, before moving to Kent. There, she established Atelier Design Consultants, offering turn-key solutions for architectural residential and redevelopment projects, whilst simultaneously working on private development projects in and around Kent. Her experience flipping properties lead to Angie redeveloping a site in Surrey. This ambitious project inspired her to travel to Europe and form key relationships with manufacturers and suppliers directly. Associations that still benefit her clients today.  Angie spent the next few years completing key projects in Fulham, Clapham Common, and Finsbury Park, expanding her network further and allowing Atelier Design Consultants to offer clients design and build solutions.   Since the pandemic, Angie has focussed on the increasing demand for ethical design with a focus on sustainability. This has lead to the successful establishment of Atelier de Linde Architects, a new RIBA chartered practice, with her partner Tara de Linde.
