Who + How | London residential architecture
At GOAStudio he is personally responsible for every project from start to finish; he likes to make sure that the clients are fully engaged, challenged and are made active participants during the design process.
The GOAStudio architectural team aims to provide a friendly and professional service. Our approach is based on fully considering the particular aspects of each scheme while at the same time looking for a creative way to allow our clients instil their own unique stamp on what we do and how we do it.

Working with consultants
We have teamed up with other consultants in order to offer an extended service to our clients. Once we have discussed the project requirements and identified the project needs we will advise on what other professionals will need to come onboard; the appointment of other professionals is made directly by the client.
1. Structural engineering services
The services of a structural engineerare often needed at the Building Regulations stage; the engineer is the professional who is qualified to calculate loads, specify the size of beams/columns and design foundations based on specific structural loads. We recommend:
“We provide structural design and engineering services for private, commercial and residential clients and typically produce structural schemes for the creation of new-build and refurbishment projects. Based in North London, we work on schemes for sites throughout the UK.”
2. Kitchen design and supply services
“Kitchen Co-Ordination is a London based Design Studio specialising in Rational Contemporary – Modern German Kitchens. Kitchen Coordination designs stunning, quality, contemporary kitchens to fit around your life. Every one of our kitchens is unique. Designed to suit you and built to last.
We offer a truly personal service from our first meeting through to the first cup of coffee in your new kitchen. We also offer a fully project managed service and will work closely with your builder or architect. We make sure every kitchen installation runs as smoothly as possible.”
3. Landscape architect services
We also like to work with landscape architects who can bring a lot to the table when it comes to considering external spaces in more detail. Often a garden is not only the functional area where family life takes place; a landscaped garden is often the main view, the focal point and an extension of a living area and a beautiful external space can add a lot to the home living experience.
Working with building suppliers
Finding a reliable, understanding and trustworthy builder can be a job in itself at the best of times. Over the years and through many projects, we have established working relationships with a number of builders operating across London.
Once the design has been completed, the local authority approvals have been obtained and a tender package of information has been produced, GOAStudio can recommend builders who we have worked with in the past and who have successfully completed projects for our clients.
We have worked with the building suppliers below and we are happy to recommend them for your project.
