V&V Architects studio was established in 2008. Following the growth we have moved to Limited company in 2015. We specialise in architecture and interior design. With different backgrounds we have an experience in a residential, commercial, cultural and conservation sectors. We work closely with our clients to develop the brief into innovative and cost effective designs that respond to their physical and cultural context. Always striving to create elegant designs with conceptual clarity, our design process is informed by both traditional craft based techniques and the possibilities offered by modern materials and fabrication methods.

Architecture: Good design can improve the quality of our lives. With this in mind, we sensitively refurbish period properties for contemporary living, design timeless new buildings including subterranean extensions under houses or gardens.
Interior Design: All spaces can be enhanced and made unique. From period refurbishments to reconfiguring entire spaces to adapt to modern living, we forge new techniques and finishes to create exceptional places. Luxury kitchens, bathrooms, and joinery are all designed with the specific needs of our clients in mind.
Furniture: Some spaces we design require bespoke furniture. Working closely with professional craftsmen we use natural and innovative materials to shape individual pieces. Recent commissions include dining tables, beds, chandeliers, chairs, beds and occasional furniture.
