North London Architects

North London Architects

With an extensive portfolio of completed residential projects throughout North London and North West London over more than a decade, Scenario Architecture sees the capital as home terrain. Our clients have helped propel us to North London architects of choice: changing North London’s architectural landscape house by house.

We established Scenario in 2007 with a vision to develop a uniquely collaborative method of architecture. We take a considered approach to our clients’ desires, placing their aspiration for a new, architect-designed home in high definition. The clients’ needs are the main focus of our design process.

A highly functional home is the result of a deep understanding and precise analysis of each client’s unique lifestyle – and that shows in our work. A Scenario house tells the story of the owners – not the architects.

Scenario House, our landmark project in Stoke Newington, London, was covered widely and shortlisted for several prestigious architecture awards – including the 2018 RIBA London Awards. It is proof our successful approach to domestic architecture projects.

Working with Scenario Architecture on your North London / North West London project

Scenario Architecture is a boutique architecture studio focused on high-end residential projects around London. We tackle domestic architecture of every scale and complexity, from interior refurbishments to full renovations and new-builds, through our bespoke architecture service.

Our friendly, highly skilled team can take you step-by-step through the challenge of designing your new space. We’ll all collaborate closely from the initial drawings, detail design and planning through tender and construction to the successful completion of your project. On time and on budget.

Scenario is a RIBA Chartered Practice. We comply with the strict criteria of the Royal Institute of Chartered Architects, covering insurance, health and safety and quality-management.

Early adopters of the latest technology, we use 3D design and visualisation tools as a standard on all projects. Our experience shows that real-time visualisations and virtual reality are extremely efficient for choosing finishes, fixtures and fittings, and simulating natural light.

We use 3D building information modelling (BIM) to produce reliable construction information, so all our data comes from an accurate, coordinated 3D model. Using this cutting-edge technology collaboratively with consultants and contractors is proven to save our clients time and money.

A Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) case study featuring a Scenario project demonstrates the great benefits of this advanced technology for domestic architecture.

We wanted to renovate our house in a conservation area in central London. Given this involved a complete demolition and new build with an extra floor on top, getting planning approval was always going to be tricky. Scenario did an amazing job on the new house ‘envelope’ and throughout the planning phase. We couldn’t have wished for better from them and having succeeded in gaining planning approval owe them a very big ‘thank you’.


Scenario designed a kitchen extension for us, and we are delighted with the results. The process was well organised, planned and delivered, and the whole team were a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend them for their design, planning and project management skills.


Worked with these guys on the internal development of our office. From start to finish they were great. They got what we wanted first time and really made working with them very easy. Their aftercare has been great too helping us deal with something that they were not involved with in the first place. Will highly recommend them to anyone.
