What we do

Good building design is at the very core of what we do. Experience tells us that good architecture results in a more successful economic outcome for our clients and with this in mind, we combine our ingenuity, sensitivity and architectural expertise to determine the unique architectural solution for each site and project budget.

How we do it

We are specialists in designing buildings, not limited by project size or type. With each new brief, we draw on our considerable experience to create elegant buildings that sit perfectly in their wider context. Our goal is always the same – ingenious architecture that gently pushes the boundaries of the brief to quietly surpass client expectations.

Studio

Founded in 2005 by Chris Mackenzie, formally of Fielden Clegg Bradley Studios, and joined by Spencer Back in 2010 from London based Foggo Associates and Bristol’s Angus Meek Architects, Designscape’s principal architects demonstrate a breadth of experience across commercial and residential projects across London and the UK

Closely supported by a dedicated team of project architects, each with their own considerable portfolio and areas of interest and expertise, Designscape is a close-knit practice with a collaborative, open culture that allows creativity to flow and projects to run smoothly.

Our balanced skill set across the whole practice is supported by a shared ethos and ambition to design elegant architecture with sustainability and longevity in mind.
