Alexis Michaelis (born c. 1964, Notting Hill, London)[1] is an architect who resides in London.

He came to attention in 2005 after designing a five bedroom subterranean house for his family in Notting Hill, London.[2] At the same time he was giving an eco-makeover to the London home of future Prime Minister, David Cameron.[1] In 2006 he was on the judging panel for The Observer Ethical Awards.[3]

In 2009 Michaelis began another project, buying a derelict cottage near Penzance, Cornwall. He demolished the cottage and replaced it with a £1.5 million ultra-modern four bedroom house. They rented the house to holidaymakers for up to £5000 per week.[4]
