For the team at Uskuri Theobald Architects, good property design should stand out. It should be unique and offer a refreshing change from the property designs we see very often. People should be open-minded and try different things. Use different materials, have a different style, and look. Uskuri Theobald Architects are design-led residential architecture specialists that bring creativity and innovation into every project.
This inspired group of architects believes that there should be no gap between the interior and exterior design of a building for an enduring and elegant design. While designs should fulfil that aesthetical appeal, they should also fit with the lifestyle of the end-users thereby improving the way they live. Their goal is to design buildings that are durable, functional with great aesthetical value while using sustainable materials. The team has successfully planned, designed, and devised multiple building projects including self-build, new build, renovation, and house extension projects.
Founded in January 2019, by Leoni Uskuri, Oguz Uskuri, and Ryan Theobald, the St Albans based architectural firm has successfully delivered many wonderful residential design projects across St Albans, Radlett, Harpenden, and areas in and around Hertfordshire and London. They are flexible with budgets and always have design ideas or recommendations that will work with your budget. Whether you are after more living space or looking at how to get the best out of your property, the team has a recommendation for you.
Leoni and Oguz had been working for other architectural practices but felt they could not impose their style and creativity on some of the projects they worked on. Four years ago, they set up their architectural firm called Studio Uskuri Ltd. Starting a new design business meant a lot of hard work and long hours. Ryan Theobald had been working in London as an Architect. The three partners decided to bring their skillset and experience together under one firm to offer a better proposition to the clients. Working together has improved their work-life balance as they have young families.
Working with Uskuri Theobald Architects means you benefit from over 50 years’ experience in architecture, interior design, and construction expertise for your project. The team guides you on your journey to creating your dream home with inspirational ideas and designs. They also assist with site analysis, feasibility studies, planning permission, change of use, and permitted developments thereby offering an integrated design solution for a residential building project.
The team also factor in sustainability into their designs and encourage clients to use more eco-friendly materials, solar energy, and other energy-efficient solutions in their projects for the best outcomes. All designs and planning are creative and futuristic. For instance, a room in a house could be used for other purposes like a studio, play area, or study.
Like many businesses, the covid-19 pandemic slowed down the operations of the firm in the earlier part of the year as they could not physically visit clients for consultations. However, the team has adapted the way they work by doing virtual consultations while abiding by government regulations on social distancing and using PPE equipment for client visits.
Looking forward, Uskuri Theobald Architects has ambitious plans. Operating with a team of 5, they want to add 2 more designers to the team in the next 12 months. This will mean taking on more projects and winning more clients. There are already lots of projects in the pipeline including an amazing new build project. Through networking, recommendations from clients, and increasing their online marketing footprint, the team are confident they will achieve their goals. They also want to work on developments with clients and their firm's development projects.
It is hard not to feel the passion of the team about good design. Consistently educating homeowners and showing them what they can do with their properties is in the DNA of the team. This has been extended to homeowners that are not their clients.
Uskuri Theobald Architects recently set up the Facebook group called ‘All about house’ as a free service to educate and inspire more homeowners to have better designs rather than the common basic designs. If you are undertaking a home improvement or building project you can bounce off some of your ideas with the team and you are not under any obligation to become their client. Rather it is another opportunity of enriching the property designs in the area.
You can benefit from the excellent services of this young firm. The initial consultation is free. This is where they explain their services, the benefits, and how they can help you achieve your dream house. Contact them here or join the All about house Facebook group for design ideas and tips.
