BA(Hons) MA, Managing Director & Urban DesignerUfuk Bahar started our practice with the aim of helping individuals and communities to transform their ideas into reality through good design that helps them improve the quality of their surroundings and subsequently the quality of their lives.
He has developed the core of our approach – a process centred on the unique qualities of each project through creating original ideas, taking a proactive stance, and seeing the bigger picture whilst paying attention to the smallest details. With in-depth knowledge of architecture practice, he often sees the solution to any situation well before others even recognise there is a situation. A gift very few possess.

We've been overwhelmed by the amount of time and dedication Mr Ufuk Bahar has spent on our project. He has been extremely professional when dealing with the council and applying for planning permission.
He has an incredible amount of knowledge and we'd really be lost in our project without him and his team.
What an awesome service from a great firm, all of the aggravation I had from Dagenham Council melted away with the professional approach.
They comprehensively met the questions raised and gave me peace of mind. Even when things went slightly wrong they were professional and sorted it.
Mr Ufuk Bahar is an exceptionally skilled designer.
He did thorough research, meticulously presented the drawings, gave us substantial support and perfectly crystallized our thoughts into an aesthetically pleasing design.
We appreciate your expeditiousness.
Youth has a vibrancy and energy that is infectious. We wish you all well.
Urbanist Architecture provided an outstanding service in respect of our successful Certificate of Lawfulness application. I had a very tight time frame and she managed to get the whole process tied up in less than a week.
Friendly and efficient and all my emails were answered extremely promptly. I would highly recommend this firm.
Thank you for all your efforts in helping us to secure planning permission.
You make our dreams come true.
They helped me almost triple my rental income! I got my planning permission not just for converting my house into flats but for also extending my property to rear and up to add more bedrooms and flats.
I quickly realised how an architect could do much more for me!
Following a recommendation from a friend, I asked Urbanist Architecture team to prepare my planning application.
All members of staff were friendly, helpful and very professional to deal with. Thank you very much!
Very professional service. Drew up our plans in record time, made changes speedily and without quibble. Clear and thorough plans. Acquired planning permission from Lewisham Council within record time. Highly recommended, will definitely use again if required.
