Annalie Riches co-founded Mikhail Riches in 2015 to focus on providing housing and neighbourhoods that are inherently sustainable and joyful places to live. Prior to establishing Mikhail Riches she was founding director of Riches Hawley Mikhail, a practice that set the bar for low-carbon social housing with Clay Field and Goldsmith Street.

Annalie contributes across all the scales of architectural practice; she is recognised for her masterplanning and strategic abilities, as well as her in-depth knowledge of housing. She is also well known for her ‘hands on’ expertise in architectural design and detailing. Annalie went ‘on the tools’, building her own house, Whatcotts Yard in 2002. The project subsequently won the 2004 RIBA / AJ first Building award. Her projects include Velocity, the winning entry to the 2018 Infrastructure Commission Competition, providing 400,000 new homes between Oxford and Cambridge. She is also leading on Park Hill Phase 2,4 and 5, plus the Bridgewater masterplan in the Olympic Park.

Annalie is a visiting Professor of Architecture at Sheffield University and is an External Examiner for The University of the Creative Arts. She was selected to judge the RIBA International Awards plus the Stirling Prize Shortlist 2018-2024.
