Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in London, UK
VORBILD Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in London, UK
"Hired Vorbild Architecture to design a few units I was remodeling. The work they offer is that of high quality and experience. I've dealt with other Architecture firms in the past, but they've always given sub par customer service and similar results in their work ethic and craftsmanship. Vorbild is one company I would recommend for any project big or small. I will definitely be working with them in the future."

Martins Camisuli Architects
Architects and Building Designers in London, UK
"Martins Camisuli designed and project managed a new kitchen project in my home. I wanted something individual and crafted. It involved complete remodelling of the space, removal of walls and the design and manufacture of bespoke kitchen units. They were responsive to my ideas, creative and enthusiastic. I found it very easy to communicate with them and the works were completed on time and on budget. I think the choice of materials and overall design are warm simple and enduring. I would be very happy to have the opportunity use them again."

Ambo Architects
Architects and Building Designers in London, UK
"Paul of Ambo Architects was recommended to me by my builder who praised his detailed construction drawings and problem solving skills. He said architects often provided only outline plans with very little thought on how the design should be practically achieved and that Paul was very different. The builder was right. Paul proved to be a delight to deal with, a very good listener with an open collaborative approach to the early stages of design. He has a great understanding of regulations both planning and building and produced a final design to a very high standard that sailed through all regulatory processes. The drawings provided for construction were extensively detailed with nothing left to chance, when any issues did arise Paul was on hand to help resolve the problems. The project was for a ground floor side return extension with a small first floor extension above. The realised design absolutely maximises both the available space and light in what is a small, and previously dark mid-Victorian house. The contemporary design, with modernist influence, is achieved in traditional materials and sits well with the rest of the victorian architecture. I would recommend Ambo to anyone."

Scenario Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in London, UK
"We really enjoyed working with the team at Scenario Architecture. They are a very nice and friendly bunch but remained professional. Creative approach to determining our ideal renovation. Very happy with the design and result. Directed us towards an excellent builder to do the work. It seems the transition from the pretty 3d renderings and design phase to detailed plans a builder could execute was exceptional as I've heard of others having issues here and our builder never mentioned any issues, problems, or vague items within the drawings. Spent a bit too much time at the front on concepts that were beyond the budget. When considering what include or remove from the design for cost reasons, we would get the response of "we're not builder" but we expected a bit more understanding of the entire build process. On the other hand, I was grateful that they were honest with us that our original proposed budget was simply too small for what we all hoped to achieve."

VC Design Architectural Services
Architects and Building Designers in London, UK
"VC Design was recommended to me and I would do the same without hesitation. We contacted Veronica about drawing up plans for our ground floor extension and although conceptually we had a clear idea of what we wanted to she was invaluable in advising us how to best use the space and our options within the parameters of planning. She also contacted previous clients and arranged for us to see the work they had done, this allowed us to see first hand some of the ideas we had discussed. Veronica submitted the planning application and we have now received our approval - a job very well done."

Clifton SMR
Architects and Building Designers in London, UK
"Artichoke has worked with Mark and Rosie for longer than most of us can remember. They are both hugely knowledgeable and experienced with a fantastic back catalogue of successful residential projects to their name. Combining interior design with architectural services in the way they do makes projects simpler and it adds a huge amount of value. They are also both great fun to work with."
- Artichoke
Emil Eve Architects
Architects and Building Designers in London, UK
"Great conservation architects in Hackney. Emil Eve work hard, have great attention to detail and always meet deadlines. Where some architects in central London big offices treat you like an invoice, Emil Eve are genuinely interested in the projects they take on and the result is a very high standard all round."
- Peter Monaghan
Marienne Pachonick Architects
Architects and Building Designers in London, UK
"It was a pleasure to work with Marienne Pachonick. She was always on hand ready to answer any questions we had promptly and accurately. Her drawings were comprehensive and extremely clear for the teams on site which allowed us to form a great working relationship. Furthermore her designs worked extremely well and gave an excellent end result for the client. She is certainly an architect who goes the extra mile and BTL Property would be delighted to recommend and work with Marienne again in the future."

How do I find the best London architect for my home design project?

It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire Greater London subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the London residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in London, UK provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?

As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in London, UK are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective London interior architects:

  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
