Architects Shoreditch > Shoreditch and Scenario Architecture

Scenario Architecture has headed architectural projects 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. 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.

Other high-profile projects – like The Nook, a modern townhouse with a series of intriguing nooks in a gated development near the Regent’s Canal – stimulated word-of-mouth and brought direct referrals to our boutique residential architecture practice.

Much more than a commercial opportunity, we saw each new challenge as an occasion to refine our singular approach to domestic architecture.

Scenario Architecture is a boutique architecture studio focused on high-end residential projects in and around London. We tackle projects 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 collaborate closely with you 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 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.

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 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.

This Chartered Institute of Building case study featuring a project by Scenario Architecture demonstrates the great benefits of this advanced technology for domestic architecture.

Architects Shoreditch > 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.
