Hampstead Architects

The long-standing relationship Scenario Architecture has with Hampstead started in our early years as a boutique residential architecture practice. A direct referral from one of our first clients provided us with a precious opportunity to start our now established track record as active and recommended Hampstead Architects.

As soon as the clients for our first full house extension and renovation in West Hampstead moved into their newly completed house, they recommended Scenario Architecture to friends who just decided to embark on an extensive renovation and extension project to their prominent family house in the heart of Hampstead.

More than just a commercial opportunity, we saw this full renovation and extension project as a chance to develop and refine our unique approach to residential architecture. The vision behind Scenario was to develop a uniquely collaborative architecture, where client’s requirements and aspirations for their newly designed home are considered in higher definition than ever before and given central stage as the main drivers of the design process.

The method we developed and refined over a decade of extensive residential architecture work in and around London is based on a deep understanding and methodical analysis of the unique way in which every one of us would like to interact with our home. Our method repeatedly produces unique, tailor-made and functional homes, which tell the story of the dwellers rather than that of the Architects.

Most projects would need planning permission, which in Hampstead will require obtaining planning permission from Camden Council. Our extensive track record working with Camden planning department and successfully securing planning permissions for our clients enables us to consider Camden in general and Hampstead in particular our home court.


TIP: To find out the actual track record which any architects you may be considering has with your local council, go to the planning application search page on your local council’s website and use the search by agent option.


To help you understand in more detail what is required for obtaining planning permission in Hampstead we created a helpful and clear guide which you can download below:

This guide is suitable for people who intend to make alterations to their homes that will require the consent of their local council.

Scenario Architecture is an RIBA Chartered Practice, which essentially means that we are compliant with the RIBA (Royal Institute of Chartered Architects) strict criteria, covering insurance, health and safety and quality management systems.

As early adopters of latest technology, we use as a standard for all projects a verity of innovative 3D design and visualisation tools to create and communicate design with our clients. Our experience shows that Real-Time visualisations and Virtual Reality tours are extremely powerful tools to streamline the process of choosing material finishes fixtures and fittings as well as simulating realistic natural light conditions.

When we produce accurate and reliable construction information we use the latest 3D BIM technology, (BIM stands for Building Information Modelling) which means that all project information is derived from a single accurate and coordinated 3D model. Using this cutting-edge technology collaboratively with other consultants as well as contractors has proven to save time and cost for our clients.

A case study featuring one of our projects was published by the Chartered Institute of Building, demonstrating the great benefits of this advanced technology specifically with domestic projects.
