Scenario has led architectural projects in and around East London for more than a decade. From our offices on the Regent’s Canal, we’ve built an extensive portfolio of domestic architecture across Hackney and into Islington.
Our landmark projects range from double-height extensions and new-build infill houses to our own home, on a quiet residential terrace in Stoke Newington, Hackney. The extension and refurbishment to that period house earned us recognition from juries across the country – including a place on the shortlist for the 2018 RIBA London Award.
Founding partners Ran Ankory and Maya Carni took on their first property, a three-bedroom flat in Stoke Newington, as a platform for their ambitious ideas and innovative methods. This project led to significant exposure in the press, and the unique fireplace was shortlisted for the Architectural Review Emerging Architecture Awards.
Nearly 10 years later, Ran and Maya purchased, designed and renovated their second home in Stoke Newington. The Scenario House was widely published and shortlisted for several prestigious awards – including the 2018 RIBA London Award.

Early adopters of the latest technology, we use innovative 3D design and visualisation tools as a standard on all projects. Our experience shows that real-time visualisations and virtual reality are extremely efficient tools for choosing finishes and fittings, and simulating natural light.
We also use 3D building information modelling (BIM) technology to produce reliable construction information, so all our project 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 case study featuring a Scenario project demonstrates the great benefits of this advanced technology for domestic architecture.
In our clients words
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.
