Pascal Huser

Designer and Director

Pascal studied Fine Art at Wimbledon School of Art and Canterbury College of Art, but after graduating in 1985 found his way into Investment Finance in London, Paris and Zurich. When he returned to London in 1999, with an enduring passion for art and design, he recognised a real need for an a more design-led approach to domestic construction work, and set up Pascal Huser Design and Build. He has since grown it into a leading design and build practice, expanding the team in 2008 to include in-house architects and designers.

Twenty years on from its inception, Pascal still takes a very hands-on approach, actively involved overseeing and guiding every aspect of work undertaken on all sites. His knowledge and insight are invaluable, from encouraging clients to experiment with their creative ideas, to providing realistic perspective on total build spend.

Cristina Carriles Cabello

Architect ARB

Cristina studied architecture at Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de San Sebastián UPV (Spain). During the academic year 2010-2011, Cristina moved to Milan (Italy) to complete an Erasmus exchange with the Politecnico di Milano. During her studies in 2012 Cristina took part in the well-known competition Solar Decathlon Europe. Cristina also has a key interest in drawing as she studied at a drawing school for 13 years, this has assisted communicating her designs more efficiently throughout her years of working within the industry.

Once Cristina finished her master’s degree she moved to England and joined us in 2015. Her particular expertise is within the design of new residential refurbishment schemes, making the most of spaces and following client’s requirements, whist also encouraging them observe spaces with a new perspective.

Massimo De Luca

Furniture Designer of Maxdelucadesign
Massimo studied Furniture Design in Naples at the school of art Filippo Palizzi and then architecture with specialisations in Interior Architecture and Museography at Facolta’ di Architettura Federico II. Soon after moving from Italy to London in 2004, Massimo started a collaboration for two well-known interior design practises in Chelsea as an interior architect. The experience built on almost two years of collaboration and several projects completed across London eventually led him to the establishment in 2006 of maxdelucadesign, a company specialised in furniture design & source.
Another crucial moment in Massimo’s professional biography was to meet Pascal in 2010 on a building site in Fulham. The two like-minded designers felt the need to mutually help each other in their so called “mission” to spread the language of contemporary design across the extensive portfolio of clients. Massimo was meant to help Pascal mostly with the design and source of kitchens and storage solutions. Every detail of the furniture had to work in harmony with the elements that always characterise Pascal’s interiors, like shadow gaps and recessed fittings.

Leire Apellaniz

Architect based in Bilbao

Leire Apellaniz studied architecture at the University of the Basque Country (San Sebastian, Spain) and the University Roma Tre (Rome, Italy), and in 2012 completed a Postgraduate degree in Fashion Design at the University of Fine Arts of the Basque Country. She then moved to London to join the Pascal Huser team in 2012. Since then she has augmented her day job by completing the ‘RIBA: Practice in the UK’ architecture course (London Metropolitan University), and even a distance-learning Master´s Degree in Occupational Health and Safety in the University of Nebrija, Madrid.

A talented asset to the Pascal Huser team, Leire’s architectural design skills are highly regarded: in 2016 she was runner-up in the BIA Bilbao Bizkaia Architecture prize for urban design.
