Scenario Architecture has worked closely with Camden Council Planning Department since the early days of our boutique residential architecture practice. Since then, we’ve enjoyed a string of successes across Hampstead, West Hampstead and the London Borough of Camden and established ourselves as Camden architects of choice.
One of our earliest referrals in Camden came from clients in West Hampstead as they moved into their full house extension and renovation – our first such project. They recommended Scenario Architecture to friends embarking on an extensive home renovation and extension in the heart of Hampstead.
More than a commercial opportunity, we saw this full renovation and extension as an opportunity to develop and refine our unique approach to residential architecture. Scenario puts its clients’ desires and ambitions central stage, as the main directors of the design process.
We established Scenario Architecture in 2007 with a vision to develop a uniquely collaborative process. We take a considered approach to our clients’ desires, placing their aspirations for an architect-designed home in high definition. The clients’ needs are the main drivers of our design process.
Practicing residential architecture across London for more than a decade, we’ve refined our client-led method, developing a deep understanding of the ways people engage with their home. Our process yields functional, tailor-made homes that tell the story of the owners, not the architects.

Starting your Camden project
If you’re considering hiring Camden architects, 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 Camden. Most architecture projects in Camden require planning permission from Camden Council. With our successful record securing planning permission on behalf of our clients, we’ve worked collaboratively with Camden Council to realise some ambitious and daring schemes.

Working with Scenario Architecture on your Camden project
Scenario Architecture is a boutique architecture studio focused on high-end residential projects in and around London. Through our bespoke architecture service we tackle domestic projects of every scale and complexity, from interior refurbishments to full renovations and new-builds.
Our experienced, highly skilled team can take you step-by-step through the challenge of designing your space. We always collaborate closely from the initial drawings, design and planning phase through tender and construction to the successful completion of your project. On time and on budget every time.
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 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 use 3D building information modelling (BIM) technology to produce reliable construction information, so that all our project data comes from an accurate, coordinated 3D model. Using this technology collaboratively with consultants and contractors is proven to save 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.
