Our design teams work on a wide range of architectural assignments that consist of everything from private residential projects to academic and community complexes. Every development our design team seek to construct revolves around the principles of open space, light and transparency. Our company’s London-based architectural work follows these ideals with active client input.

Experienced and Customer Focused Architects in Hammersmith
Shape Architecture has been at the helm of building projects across a number of industrial sectors. In the past, we have designed schools, nurseries, community complexes, and private houses. As architects, we pride ourselves on our scope of work with an ethos that no project is too large or too small, always looking to add architectural interest in our work. Given the great diversity of our special areas of practice, our company has the ability to offer cutting-edge and original architectural solutions.
Private Residential Projects
Our architects’ residential projects vary from small extensions to large scale basement conversions and complete renovation. The common denominator of our designs is an exceptional combination of crucial concepts like living space, transparency, and light. Fresh build proposals such as the Devon Eco House spotlight the union of sustainable building and modern, inspiring design.
Sustainable Architecture From our Architects in Hammersmith
At Shape Architecture London, we have been developing environmentally friendly properties for over fifteen years. We use that experience for the benefit of our customers along with their specifications and the individual requirements of each project. Our team provides professional guidance on a range of sustainability concerns. These include relatively simple elements like the installation of PV panels, and much more challenging concerns, like heat pumps.
Hammersmith Community Architecture
The first EcoShed 01 located in Hammersmith is in a secluded site at the rear of Loris Gardens. As it was required to be an example of a sustainable building it only touches the ground lightly through a beam and post structure and features a green Sedum roof that collects rainwater. Much of the interior uses second hand components such as a series of doors that have been adapted as seats and dividers, recycled flooring and recycled sink.
Sustainable Community Buildings
EcoShed 02 in Hammersmith was commissioned by the Hammersmith and Community Gardens Association, whom we previously worked with on EcoShed 01. The brief asked for a sustainable building to be sited in Godolphin Park. This was a much more public setting than at the previous EcoShed 01 and demanded a different approach. The contractor, Ecolibrium Solutions, was 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.
