Hi, my name is Anamaria, and along with my partner, we co-founded our family-based architecture studio. What sets us apart is our commitment to understanding you deeply. We don't just incorporate your needs; we look into the 'why' behind your preferences.

Our diverse portfolio spans refurbishments, extensions, conversions, listed buildings, and new builds. We seamlessly integrate architectural, interior, furniture, and landscape design with a specialised step-by-step design approach.

This process equally prioritizes efficiency and design. Each project optimizes every inch for functionality, considering both interior and exterior dynamics. Along with you, we create a seamless journey from ideation to a successful handover, with constant communication and collaboration at every stage.

While our project photos here showcase a fraction of our work, we're eager to share more during our first conversation.

We have a remarkable planning application approval rate and bring extensive experience working with boroughs throughout London, beyond the city, and even internationally.

Let's chat and explore your project's possibilities together.

All the very best, Anamaria

Throughout the build, Anamaria and Bogdan maintained the approach of listening, engaging, paying attention to the minutiae, whilst simultaneously responding to council/budgetary/lockdown constraints. In doing so, the end product is a modernised home that maximises space and light and ensures a minimalist design – which is what I wanted.

I’m delighted for their Home Transformation of the Year at the British Home Awards, they deserve it and it couldn’t happen to nicer people. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

'We just loved working with Anamaria and Bogdan. We are doing a major renovation and basement extension for our Kensington home. Their design proposal was outstanding. In the execution phase, they were detail oriented, innovative but sensible and they kept costs low while delivering great design. They love their work - it shows in the results.'

'We bought our house because we loved the location but it always felt dark and cramped. We chose Vatraa because they immediately understood us as people and were attuned to our particular needs. We wanted space to move around our kitchen, with room for our circular dining table, and we wanted more light. We also wanted our ill son’s room to be better aligned with family living. We felt strongly about sustainability and wanted to upcycle as many materials as possible, and also convert the heating and hot water system in a way that was sympathetic to the surroundings but where we no longer relied on gas. We were keen for the outdoor spaces to feel part of our lives and Vatraa produced the perfect design; the beautiful garden flows seamlessly from the kitchen extension and our son has a pretty roof garden right outside his room. The finished design reflects all our needs and has additionally hugely improved the way the entire living area feels and flows.'
