If you’re looking for “architects near me”, then we think you’ve come to the right place. Even if you’re not actually that near us on the map. Our headquarters is located in south London, and we feel rooted in the local community, but we’ve worked all over the UK and far beyond. We’re a 21st-century architecture practice (est. 2013), so we see physical distance as a barrier that can always be overcome.
Yes, we’re a London architecture firm – but that also means it should come as no surprise that our architects, planning consultants and interior designers were born in three different continents, and are comfortable in talking at least a half-dozen languages. We’re localists and internationalists.
We’re also proudly a small architecture firm in London. We think the personal touch is crucial – if you hire us to design your new home or extension or loft conversion or renovation or block of flats or development, you will have our full attention.
We only ever take on a limited number of clients because we know you deserve our complete focus on your project. Nothing is more disheartening than ringing up an architecture company working on something close to your heart and realising they have no idea who you are. We promise that will never happen with us.
Since we believe that every project is different, we believe that every client deserves a unique approach – we tackle every project with fresh eyes and original ideas in order to deliver designs that are completely bespoke, completely yours. Interiors, buildings, landscapes, towns and cities... We are truly passionate about all aspects of the environment in which we live. The most important thing to us as architects is designing places that people can live in, work in, and love.
The design projects we focus on range from house extensions and renovation projects to mixed-use master plans and urban regeneration projects, which include residential developments, commercial and retail schemes, and hospitality and leisure schemes. With professional care and attention, we work across all fields of interior design, architecture, planning and urban design.
Our diverse client base includes homeowners, community groups, local businesses, private companies, regeneration agencies, landowners and real estate developers. We guide them through every step of the project from concept through to completion. So whatever you’re looking for from an architecture firm from London – whether you yourself live or work in the capital or not – we can handle it (and we’ll always remember your name).
Urbanist Architecture is a London-based RIBA chartered architecture and planning practice with offices in Greenwich and Belgravia. We are on a mission to unlock the hidden potential of your site and deliver you a successful transformational change.
