Fulham Architects

Our practice undertakes projects of all sizes big or small across the Residential Sector.  Each project is a response to the site, brief and budget and is underscored by our creative thinking and over 20 years of experience in designing sustainable buildings.

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.

Community Architecture in Fulham

Shape Architecture carries out Community Projects such as EcoShed 01 in Loris Road and Ecoshed 02 in Godolphin Community Gardens for the Hammersmith and Community Gardens Association.  These are low carbon timber framed buildings in green settings.  One with a Green Sedum Roof and the other a Rubble Roof.

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 two glass cubes such as at Hurlingham Road basement and much else in between.

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: 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 street 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.

Basements

Fulham Basements

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.

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.  Added to this is the design of the stair which might be sat below a glazed section of roof.  Thereafter the arrangement of rooms and their relationship with lightwells is important to consider.

Interior Design

Fulham Interior Design

Shape Architecture has extensive experience in Interior Design and bespoke furniture design which we bring to all our projects. We are experienced in interior lighting design and are happy to advise on all aspects of the use of colour.

Communication

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.
