    Founded in 2010 by good friends George Bradley and Ewald Van Der Straeten, the practice is passionate about creating unique and personal spaces for all of our clients.


  • Working With Us

    We are committed to design excellence and view the building process as a collaborative one.


    We work together with our clients, providing a personal and bespoke service that ensures a stimulating design stage and a well-managed build to create a space that everyone can be proud of and enjoy.

  • Our Work

    Our team of architects and interior designers work with you to find creative solutions to take even the most challenging of spaces from drawing board to building site.


    Specialising in residential work, we build new homes and renovate, extend and reimagine existing ones. We have extensive experience in managing planning applications, tendering to contractors, working on listed buildings and within conservation areas, digging basements and building lofts.

  • Consultants

    Our extensive network of specialist consultants help us to help you make the right choices. We can help you find suitable engineers, suppliers, builders and contractors and tender for these services.

  • Planning

    We pride ourselves on our high rate of first time planning approvals for projects both within London and across the UK.


    These fast approvals are the result of our extensive technical expertise and knowledge of regulations which ensures that red tape doesn't hold back creative design.
