Faithful to an integrated spirit that is characteristic of the studio, our residential architecture is conceived in response to environmental, landscape and client needs. This follows a belief that our surroundings directly influence the quality of our lives. Houses, apartments, holiday homes and large-scale housing developments; the studio creates considered architecture that renders every project unique.
With an inherent fascination for exploring the varying nuances with how people live; specifically, the relationship between creating beautiful inner sanctums, and creating functional environments that suit individual needs, our architectural team of conceptual designers, and technical detailing specialists work towards a consistent and unique creative vision.
Specialising in private residential projects, the studio has completed projects that span from new build designs, to home renovation and refurbishments including extensions and basements, across London and the UK. We have completed many conservation and heritage building projects, successfully and harmoniously integrating new architectural technologies and features, into the original fabric of the building.
Known for our residential expertise, our architectural team develop innovative ideas and site-specific design solutions, bringing together creative vision and technical skills from concept to construction.
House renovations and mixed-use projects are invariably cost-sensitive. Our residential architects work directly with our clients to evaluate project feasibility. This includes planning objectives as well as key commercial decisions regarding multiple occupancy design. The studio combines strategic thinking with design creativity to provide value-added innovative design solutions for all housing schemes. This ensures projects are attractive to the market, and meet the required long-term occupancy needs.
Conservation and Heritage Buildings
Rigorous, pragmatic and with a clear knowledge of the constraints linked to conservation and heritage buildings, the Studio embraces the challenge that comes with successfully and harmoniously integrating contemporary design within a period space. Working alongside English Heritage and our specialist heritage buildings team, our Studio addresses the necessity to provide elegant design solutions while combining them with ambitious creative schemes.
The architectural team have a wealth of experience with planning departments across all boroughs of London. We advise on all planning matters and building regulations, from small to large scale residential schemes. Where required, we work in consultation with English Heritage, and also external planning consultant teams.
Architecture and Interior Design
Our projects reflect a belief that architecture and interiors are synonymously linked. For a truly successful project, there is design continuity that extends beyond the exterior structure of a building, and carries through to the inside. Our architecture and interior design teams work in tandem for a consistent blend of functionality and creativity.

A consideration of the external landscape is an essential component to any architectural project. Whether it concerns the landscaping of a garden at the rear of a house or conceiving an illuminated walled garden to a housing development scheme, it is important to align exterior concepts to an architectural scheme. In collaboration with landscape architects, we can achieve space-appropriate, elegant and elaborate solutions.
Sustainable Home Design
Good design must be responsible. To this aim, the studio experiments with recycled materials, as well as responsibly sourced products in all areas of expertise. Exploration into passive ways for comfort, thermal control and shading, and ventilation, is a key element to the studio’s ethos surrounding responsible design. A number of buildings completed by the studio have achieved relevant environmental accreditation, some achieving the highest rating ‘outstanding’ by BREEAM, the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for buildings.
