Allister finished his studies at Oxford Brookes University in 1999 with Postgraduate Diplomas in both Architecture and Built Resource Studies. In 2000 he registered with the ARB and RIBA as a Chartered Architect.
Prior to founding Allister Godfrey Architects in 2005, Allister spent 5 years with Anderson Orr Architects delivering a wide range of architectural projects in the residential and educational sectors.
Allister’s passion and expertise helps him deliver award-winning, contemporary residential design. His skills extend from small exciting extensions through to innovative ways of extending historic properties up to designing large single-family homes. He also is experienced with multi-unit developments, particularly with challenging sites.
Allister contributes to the RIBA's mentoring scheme, helping undergraduates transition from education to the realities of practice.
His spare time is currently split between two interests, cycling and learning photography. In 2018 he cycled 300 miles during the month of September, raising over £800 for Cancer Research UK.
