  • 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!

  • We've been so impressed with the way Mimarch Planning London and Urbanist Architecture teams have worked tirelessly together to deliver a very successful project.
    Mimarch Planning London Ltd (London EC2A)
  • 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.
    Mrs Kate A. (London SE23)
  • I was having real trouble obtaining planning permission for changing the use class of our A1 shop to A3 restaurant. Urbanist Architecture team dealt with the planning officers on my behalf and proved to the council that the design complies with the policies all of which ultimately resulted in approval.
    Mr Joseph A. (London SE10)
  • Ufuk 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 would recommend Ufuk and Urbanist Architecture without hesitation.
