Scenario Architecture’s experience in Buckinghamshire began early in our history as a boutique residential architecture practice. Our first brief in Buckinghamshire challenged us to design a contemporary extension to a Grade II-listed cottage, just next door to the Grade I-listed Milton’s Cottage in Chalfont St Giles, Buckinghamshire. We were also tasked with obtaining planning permission for the project.
The process was far from straightforward. Early on, we discovered the Grade II Registered Historic Garden next door – the only cottage garden in the Chilterns with this English Heritage listing – would not permit such a contemporary extension within view. Our enthusiastic clients agreed to give it a go against all odds, though ultimately our more considerate yet distinctly contemporary design was eventually rejected at the appeal stage.
Still, more than a decade later, with several substantial residential projects in Buckinghamshire and nearby Hertfordshire, we are well underway to establishing ourselves as architects of choice in Buckinghamshire and beyond.
Among our current projects in the area, two new-build family homes provide us with the perfect blank canvas to showcase our unique approach to residential architecture.
We established Scenario in 2007 with a vision to develop a uniquely collaborative architecture. We 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 homeowner’s unique lifestyle. That shows in our work. Scenario’s tailor-made homes tell the story of our clients – not ourselves.

Early adopters of the latest technology, we use 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 employ 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 project by Scenario Architecture 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.
