Shape Architecture is a Chartered RIBA London architectural practice accredited by RIBA, offering its services in Battersea, surrounding London boroughs, and the Greater London area, as well as further afield in the South-East. Our primary fields of experience include Private Residential projects, Schools, and Community Projects.
Our fees are fixed, and unless the scope of the project changes markedly they will not vary. In our appointment letter we will confirm the breakdown of the fees in respect of each key stage, from Survey, Planning to Technical Information, Tender and on-site Work. We always tailor our service to meet our clients’ requirements, and this may mean providing a complete service from initial design to completion on site, or a more limited service.
Experienced and Customer Focused Architects in Battersea
Our London based Architectural Practice undertakes a wide variety of Private Residential projects of all types and sizes, whilst also continuing to work in the Educational and Community sectors.
The following illustrates a range of residential projects that we continue to undertake throughout London
Basement Extensions in Battersea
Shape Architecture undertake basement extensions in boroughs throughout London, including Battersea. We have experience of building basements across the city, including many areas that require careful thought and planning to build successfully in. These include Conservation Areas, Mews, and Cul-de-Sacs. Given the technical complexity of many basement extensions and conversions we have found that it is important to engage specialist consultants with a proven expertise for various aspects of the project. As part of this professional co-operation we have been able to attain planning permission for both single and double basement extensions. At Shape Architecture we enjoy well established professional relations with all manner of specialists in basement design; Structural Engineers, Party Wall Surveyors, Building Control companies and a range of Contractors; all of whom are experienced in the design and construction of basement extensions.
Side and Rear Extensions in Battersea
At Shape Architecture we work on many extension projects. From side and rear or wrap around extensions, to pod rooms or upper floor extensions, these projects can add valuable floor space to a property either as projects in their own right or as a part of a larger project. Such projects also provide opportunities for increased connections between the internal and external environments, something that can be achieved with the extra natural light brought into the property that additional rooflights can provide – rooflights that there may not have been space for before the extension existed. We have a lot of experience in helping you decide the best type of extension for your property.
Work in Conservation Areas in Battersea
Many of our projects in London and across the South-East are in Conservation areas. We have been successful in obtaining planning permissions for a wide variety of projects in Conservation Areas. From new apartments to double basements and smaller extension and refurbishment projects, these projects have always satisfied the requirements of local authorities whilst still leaving our clients with beautiful spaces and beautiful homes that they can be proud of and feel happy in.
The experience acquired in the design of environmentally friendly properties by our architects working in Battersea during the last fifteen years supports our constant focus on sustainable architecture. Our London based architects in Battersea are pleased to provide bespoke alternatives for your environmentally friendly building needs, whether you require a photovoltaic panel array, a ground source or heat pump, or something more complex.
Loft Conversions in Battersea
We have lots of experience when it comes to designing and building Loft Conversions throughout London and are able to best advise how to go about these projects effectively and efficiently.
Pod Rooms in Battersea
As with Loft Conversions we have many Pod Room extensions in our portfolio and can help you use one to bring extra space into your property, either as part of a larger project or as smaller projects in their own right.
Extensions to Listed Buildings in Battersea
As architects in London we have been involved in the extension and refurbishment of a number of Grade 2 listed buildings. With our experience in the sector we have obtained the relevant planning permissions to extend listed buildings in a contemporary manner, opening up the spaces and providing simple and elegant light filled rooms.
