Our fees are a Fixed Lump Sum, and we are happy to be employed for any stage of our services that best suits the Client.

Residential Architecture in Fulham

Shape Architecture carries out residential work throughout Fulham.  Ranging from extensions of all types to roof terrace projects, basement extensions, internal refurbishment and energy efficiency upgrades.  We also carry out many listed building projects creating contemporary light filled spaces and it is sense of light and transparency that characterises our work.

Glass and Transparency.

Common to all our projects is the use of glass to bring natural light into all parts of a building and to provide a better visual and physical connection between the Interior and exterior. These vary from structural glass panels to glass cubes such as at Hurlingham Road basement and much else in between.

“Shape Architecture have successfully met the criteria laid down in a number of ways including the creation of an interior that works around the principles of transparency, openness and light. Their attention to detail was exemplary.”

Sustainable Architecture

Shape Architecture has over 25 years of experience in sustainable design through its Director, Jason Wren.  We can offer proven and practical suggestions on improving the energy efficiency of a home and the use of technologies such as Heat Pumps and PV arrays.  A feature of many of projects is the use of Green Sedum Roofs.

Fulham Pod Rooms

Shape Architecture has been designing pod rooms in Fulham for the last sixteen years.  These have been variously part of a larger project or projects in their own right.  The Pod Room can be used as an additional bedroom, bathroom or study.  Large rooflights set over these small rooms add a sense of space and volume.

Case Study: St Dionis Road

Our project in St Dionis Road in Fulham involves the modernisation of a house to create a light bright and contemporary home.  An extensive glass rooflight is used to flood the interior with light at Ground Floor.  Full width glazed doors open up onto the small rear garden also designed by Shape Architecture.  At the upper level the conversion of the loft and addition of a pod room add further accommodation.  At first floor level a Master bedroom with en-suite and walk-in-wardrobe is added.

Roof Terraces

Fulham Roof Terraces

Shape Architecture has been successful in obtaining planning permission for roof terraces throughout London.  These vary from those to Listed Buildings such as Florin Court, to a variety of Mews houses.  In Fulham our projects include a roof terrace in Danehurst Road to a typical terraced house.  In this instance valuable outdoor space is provided to a Duplex flat.  We have also recently completed a similar terrace to another Duplex flat in Cavaye House on Fulham Road.

“Jason and Robin were very helpful in coming up with some lovely designs for a terrace – they were very quick with the turnaround and communicated with me clearly throughout the process!”

-Isabelle Norton


Fulham Basements

A successful basement extension rests on the bringing in of natural light into the interior, which is key in creating a quality of space and this is where we have much experience.  Our Fulham basement projects form an important part of our portfolio of work.  We have carried out over 30 basement projects throughout London, 15 of which are in Fulham, where our very first basement project in Ellerby street was undertaken.  Our basement extensions range from those to mews properties, to houses and below gardens and flats.

“Jason and the team helped us design our dream home in London and where always at hand to help and hear our ideas to get the outcome we desired. We appreciated how willing they where to adapt and the good contacts they had with the planners and builders. Thanks!”

-Ivan Dexeus


Client Communication

We communicate clearly to our clients, and this is the foundation for a successful project.  All designs, no matter what size, are developed in 3D alongside freehand drawing.  A typical concept proposals brochure will have 4 or 5 different options described in 3D, 2D and freehand drawings and this will be the basis for discussion with the Client as we determine the preferred design.
