Hammersmith 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 are further broken down into each RIBA work stage for further clarity.

Our Services

Shape Architecture is happy to tailor its services to suit our clients’ requirements.  We also offer additional services such as interior, bespoke furniture and garden design.  A full service would see us taking the brief and surveying the property through to completion on site and dealing with the final account.

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.

Home Offices and Garden Rooms

Shape Architecture has been designing home offices and garden rooms for many years.  These are typically bespoke designs to suit the garden setting and our clients needs.  They are built as low energy timber structures and often feature a green sedum roof with all the sustainable benefits this brings.

Case Study 01: Beauclerc Road Basement Extension in Hammersmith

Our project in Beauclerc Road sees the creation of a basement extension with associated light wells and the re-work of the Ground floor.  The success of the basement is in large part due to light and airy feel created.  An elegant stair, wide corridor and glazed screens help create this feel.

“Couldn’t have got our project done without Shape. Jason provided sound advice, worked efficiently and to agreed timelines, and ultimately designed us a new space in our house which we absolutely love!”

-Duncan Brown, Client

Case Study 03: Sustainable Community Project at Godolphin Community Gardens, Hammersmith

Following the success of EcoShed 01, the client – contacted Shape Architecture to design EcoShed 02.  The brief was the same, but the site very different, being in the open corner of a public park.The contractor, Ecolibrium Solutions, is based in Kent and it was decided to minimise travel to and from site that the building would largely be pre-fabricated in their works and ‘delivered’ to site. On this basis the foundations were cast, and a series of railway tracks set across the park awaiting the delivery of the building.

Hammersmith Basement Extensions

Our Hammersmith and 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 Hammersmith and Fulham, where our very first project 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

Hammersmith 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.

“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.
