Architects Knightsbridge & Belgravia

Knightsbridge and Belgravia form a swath of London’s most gracious and historic residential architecture. Bracketed by Buckingham Palace and London’s “museum quarter”, their properties attract top prices and demand innovative solutions for their renovation and extension, both above- and below-ground. With an extensive portfolio of residential projects throughout London, Scenario sees the city’s most historic residential neighbourhoods as the firm’s backyard.

Scenario Architecture is a RIBA chartered practice on top of the latest methods and technology. Founders Ran Ankory and Maya Carni, graduates of London’s Architectural Association, take a fresh, inventive approach to expanding and revamping period properties.

With more than a decade’s experience adding vaulted spaces and graceful curves to classic Georgian, Regency and Victorian homes, Ran and Maya have earned their place as London architects of choice: changing the architectural landscape house by house. Their work has featured in such magazines as Elle Decoration, Dezeen, Houzz and Ideal Home.

The team established Scenario in 2007 with a vision to develop a uniquely collaborative architecture. They take a considered approach to our clients’ desires, placing their aspirations for a new, architect-designed home in high definition. A beautiful, highly functional home is the product of a deep understanding and precise analysis of each client’s unique lifestyle – and this shows in Scenario’s work. Tailor-made homes by Scenario tell the story of the homeowners – not the architects.

The team’s landmark project Scenario House, was covered widely and shortlisted for several prestigious architecture awards – including the 2018 RIBA London Awards. It demonstrates our successful approach to domestic architecture projects.

Architects Knightsbridge & Belgravia In our client words


Great ideas and vision to help with our substantial improvement of a Victorian terrace. In our experience Scenario’s method prioritises the final result. That may mean more professional fees or higher quotes from contractors, as they understand the exact requirements.


Great, professional service. Good drawings and models and ultimately passed planning at the first attempt with Hackney Council. Would certainly recommend!


Scenario Architecture have created an outstanding design and space that was beyond my expectations. The design was through their unique process of understanding the client’s daily scenarios and collaborating with the client to come up with a unique design. The design process is one of the most memorable parts of the process and they also stretched my existing ideas to help create this unique space. A stress free journey throughout the whole process which Scenario were indispensable by giving advice on many difficult design and build decisions.


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 were great at thinking imaginatively and coming up with a design for a ground floor extension that was more ambitous than other architects we spoke to. They also helped us find a contractor who was able to complete the project working within timescale and our tight budget. I would recommend for mid to large sized projects with sufficient budget to allow for full utilisation of their creativity.
