For our founder Ufuk Bahar, it all started 5 years ago. While working at different architecture companies in London, he was frustrated and unsatisfied with the limitations of expertly crafted design solutions and the inability to truly assist the landlords in property investing and developing. He wondered if there was a better way to run an architecture practice. The problem of poor design impacts more areas of property investment and development, from getting planning permission to achieving the best ROI possible.
Using his architecture knowledge, design expertise and property development experience, it didn't take him long to figure out how things should have done better. He saw clearly what was not there, what could be there, what had to be there. He imagined what the architecture industry lacked and he set out on a mission to right all the things wrong that he saw as a designer, and as a property investor and developer.
The result was Urbanist Architecture, a pioneering multidisciplinary architecture practice. Today, Urbanist Architecture is among the top 10 architecture companies in London according to TIP rankings. Urbanist Architecture shakes up old architecture industry with the vision of Design to Increase™ and gives you a more delightful experience in property development by focusing on good design to increase the value of your property, the quality of your living environment and subsequently the quality of your life.
