Scenario counts itself among the top residential architecture studios in London. Over more than a decade, we’ve amassed a portfolio of high-end projects across the capital, adding contemporary curves to period homes, and building distinctive, highly functional spaces.
We established Scenario in 2007 with a vision to develop a uniquely collaborative architecture. Our boutique practice takes a considered approach to our clients’ habits, hobbies and aspirations, delivering highly functional contemporary living spaces that tell a story about the owners – not the architects.
Our landmark project Scenario House has been covered widely by the media and shortlisted for several prestigious architecture prizes – including the 2018 RIBA London Awards. It demonstrates our innovative and tailored approach to domestic architecture.
Starting your project with our residential architects, London
If you plan to take on a residential architectural project in London, we’re happy to help, whether you’re planning a home extension, renovation or new-build.
We’ve created a brief illustrated overview to help you understand each stage of the process.
Most London architecture projects require planning permission from the local council. With our successful record securing planning permission on behalf of our clients, we can claim home advantage across in and around the capital.
To help you understand what it takes to obtain planning permission in London, we’ve created this helpful handbook. Download it below.
This handbook is suitable for anyone requiring consent from the local council to alter a home. It reviews the nuts and bolts of UK planning and strategies for successfully navigating it, based on our own experience.
Working with Scenario Architecture on your residential project
Scenario is a boutique architecture studio focused on high-end residential projects in London and beyond. Through our bespoke architecture service, we tackle domestic projects of every scale and complexity, from interior refurbishments to full renovations and new-builds.
Our friendly and 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, guiding you through the tender and construction process and completing your house on time and on budget.
Early adopters of new drafting and building technologies, we use innovative 3D design and visualisation tools as a standard for all projects. Our experience has shown that real-time visualisations and virtual reality are extremely efficient tools for choosing finishes, fixtures and fittings, and simulating natural light.
We 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.
A Chartered Institute of Building case study featuring a Scenario project demonstrates the great benefits of this advanced technology for domestic architecture.
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 systems.

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.
