Architecture, Design and Planning

Good architecture and design enhances our living environment. It improves the quality of life and well-being for its inhabitants and those who live amongst well-conceived buildings and spaces. Each project is a specific undertaking by Sutters Architecture where we embrace change and the opportunity for improvement, delivered with a robust and sequential design process that engages on the many levels that architecture must perform to achieve successful resolution. As each project evolves on its own terms we do not promote a house style. The brief and client aspirations chart the path by which we achieve quality, economy and function and link with a wider realm of aesthetic, environmental and cultural demands that embed holistic solutions, seeking design excellence and sustainability in the local setting.

As a full services architectural practice we work from feasibility, through design and implementation to create projects that break the mould of standard practice by offering a broader range of services, leading to an effective and integrated approach. We undertake both contemporary and traditional commissions and source the appropriate support from specialists, whether it be for example arboricultural, engineering or heritage consultants, as the project demands. In-house professional planning services, landscape design and significant experience in project construction management for new build, remodelling or fit-out across many sectors of work support our core architectural services.  

In an increasingly complex planning environment we believe that architecture and planning must operate hand in glove to develop a viable project strategy, confidently inform the evolution of design and to accord with planning policy by identifying opportunities and constraints. This delivers a balance of pragmatism and innovation in advancing optimised solutions. Sutters Architecture has achieved in London, and extensively countrywide, an almost 100% planning success for our clients over the past decades for both large and small projects, from private homes, large residential developments to mixed use, pocket regeneration schemes. A very small ratio taken to and won at appeal. We have delivered significant enhancement in land values and contributed to the quality of architecture and external spaces for our clients and the community at large.
