Architects Hackney

Scenario Architecture’s close relationship with the London Borough of Hackney began more than a decade ago, when founding partners Ran Ankory and Maya Carni moved to the neighbourhood to start a family and establish a residential architecture practice.

Ran and Maya established Scenario in 2007 with a vision to develop a uniquely collaborative architecture. Scenario takes a considered approach to its clients’ desires, placing their aspirations for a new, architect-designed home in high definition. The clients’ needs are the main drivers of the design process.

A beautiful, highly functional home is the product of a deep understanding and precise analysis of each client’s unique lifestyle. Each tailor-made Scenario home tells the story of the owners – not the architects.

Ran and Maya’s first property, a three-bedroom flat in Stoke Newington, provided a platform for their ambitious ideas and innovative methods. This experience working as local architects in Hackney led to significant exposure in the press, and the unique fireplace was shortlisted for the Architectural Review Emerging Architecture Awards.

Nearly a decade later, Ran and Maya purchased, designed and renovated their second home in Hackney. The Scenario House was widely published and shortlisted for several prestigious awards – including the 2018 RIBA London Award.

Starting your Hackney project

If you’re considering a residential architectural project in Hackney, we’re here to help, whether it’s a renovation, extension or new-build.

We’ve created a brief illustrated overview to help you understand each stage of the process, whether you’re planning a home extension, renovation or new-build in Hackney.

Most architecture projects require planning permission. In Stoke Newington, Clapton, Dalston, Shoreditch and all other Hackney neighbourhoods, that means obtaining planning permission from Hackney Council. With our successful record securing planning permission on behalf of our clients, we can claim home advantage across Hackney.

 

TIP: Discover if your chosen architect has had success steering planning applications through your local council. Visit the “planning applications” page of your council’s website and enter the architect’s name in the search criteria.

 

To help you understand what it takes to obtain planning permission in Hackney, we’ve created this helpful guide. Download it below.

This guide is suitable for anyone requiring consent from the local council to alter a home. It reviews the nuts and bolts of UK planning and strategies for successfully navigating it, based on our own extensive experience.

We tackle domestic projects of every scale and complexity, from interior alterations and refurbishments to full renovations and new-builds, through our bespoke architecture service.

Our friendly, experienced, highly skilled team can take you step-by-step through the challenge of designing your new space.

Scenario Architecture 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 systems.

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

We 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.

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.
