We are contemporary designers and enjoy the play between new and old.

NFA architects, established 2003, is an award-winning practice ideally positioned to respond to fast paced design processes, discerning clients and tight programs. We work in several sectors, predominantly residential but also commercial and education. Our forte is designing wining schemes in sensitive locations such as working on grade I listed buildings in some of the most prestigious locations across London. Our work covers all work stages so we can guide our clients seamlessly from concept to completion on site. We offer a range of services to aid developers. Often commercially sensitive decisions are time critical and we assist in developing a commercial case for a site or project to establish the feasibility, we can then take on the project should it go forward to completion.


NFA architects strive for success for all our clients. Our approach is bespoke to each project and keeps the design process fresh. Taking the time to understand our clients and appreciating how they wish to live helps us to achieve the perfect solution. The key to our success in the residential sector is designing the big architectural moves that will create amazing spaces while applying the details that are personal to the client.

Our inspiration is varied as it begins with the client and their aspirations for their project. We are contemporary designers and enjoy the play between new and old but our methods are fluid enough to tailor to the client not impose a style or ideal on a person. We also look to the context for inspiration, sometime this means working sympathetically with the context and sometimes working in contrast, it is this fluidity that produces sometimes unexpected but always beautiful designs appropriate to the individual constraints.

It is our firm commitment to each and every client to deliver the best possible solution within the limits they chose to impose. We craft our designs and nurture the initial concept to develop well considered projects that leave our clients delighted. By our nature we lead clients through the process making it as enjoyable as possible. Often, we find clients choose to return or introduce friends as they have enjoyed the process so much and the working relationship developed through it.

Enthusiasm and positivity drive the office. The love of creating and the appreciation of the clients helps to sustain the high levels of energy and determination to get the project through the many stages. A close-knit team is essential to delivering the high standard of work required and being part of an encouraging, creative and busy team means all aspects of our work benefits.
