I am dedicated to designing spaces that are beautiful, spacious and noble, no matter how small or complex they are.
My designs are finely tailored to each client to bring something special and unique to them.
The design process starts by listening to the client's aspirations, analysing the project context and its possibilities, and proposing a vision reflecting my discussions with the client.
Finally I use my knowledge and experience of the construction process to deliver the chosen design.
"The acid test of the space that Sophie has designed is that we spend our Sunday afternoons there! It feels light, warm and airy, modern but not sterile. We love it."

"I would highly recommend Sophie.
She oversaw the extensive refurbishment of our house in W10.
Sophie was absolutely fantastic at so many levels!
Sophie is extremely committed, diligent and reliable.
She managed to navigate our complex conundrum: high ambition, restricted budget and no time. And she did it with a constant smile, which was not a small challenge.
Sophie sitting herself on the Architectural Advisory Panel for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, her knowledge of what is feasible and what is likely to go through the planning committee is invaluable. She is extremely knowledgeable on all the guidelines the council has and this proved to be critical in assuring our planning was in accordance with what could be accepted.
Sophie is particularly good at volumes, spaces, clean lines and light.
She always came with multiples interesting options and always surprised us by thinking out of the box and bringing ingenious solutions to any problem.
And she respected our point of view and work with us to achieve the best results possible.
We are absolutely delighted of our collaboration with Sophie and the results speak for themselves. She helped created an extraordinary space that is making us happy every day!" Gaelle

"Sophie travelled over 150 miles to help us out of a very unexciting and traditional design proposal that we had on the table.
Her proposals were amazing, we clicked straight away. Without any doubt she was the right person to add a contemporary feel to an extension of our Victorian country estate house.
The local conservation department were also delighted.
Sophie's costs were reasonable and the distance presented no problems.
We love the result. The proportions and careful use of modern and traditional materials have linked the two styles perfectly.
I have already recommended Sophie to others and would use her services again." Rob

"We commissioned [Sophie's practice] to undertake our home transformation from design right through to build completion. And we could not have made a better decision!
At the design stage, Sophie always took into account our needs and desires, and then came up with inspiring and practical solutions.
During the detailed design and planning stage, Sophie's organisation, knowledge and thoroughness in all aspects of her work was invaluable. We were provided with many ideas and the great thing was we were given the time and freedom to explore them for ourselves. It was fun to go and check out her recommendations; even more fun when she joined us. We had a tight budget and Sophie always took that into account, advising us as to where we could make savings and where it was important to invest.
Sophie also managed the build for us. Her attention to detail, her organisation, and ability to foresee and manage problems was brilliant: As a client you have enough decisions to make without the added stress of overseeing the work! Budgets and timescales were also always transparent.
We are now back in our home and LOVING it! Our kitchen has been transformed from a small, dark and cold room to a warm, light, airy, practical family kitchen/dinning room. We could not be happier and there is not a single day where we don't think, "oh wow the light and space here is amazing!" It's so practical too, perfect for our expanding family.
Upstairs two rooms were reconfigured to create a slightly smaller bathroom and we gained an additional bedroom. The bathroom although a bit smaller it is now much brighter, more practical, family friendly and beautiful. The new shower room is also an added bonus.
We could not have been happier with [Sophie's practice] and with the outcome." Katrin
