Barr Gazetas - Award Winning London Architect

About Barr Gazetas

Difference is at the core of what we do. The design of difference is what feeds our creativity and the desire to improve, to augment, and to originate. We create places for living and working in that enhance the environment. These also feed productivity and promote calm, with many subtleties of mood and texture in-between.

We Specialise in Transformation

Our work has moved between the masterplanning of 2,000 acres in Crete to transforming tired or derelict office spaces in London. We’ve built projects for education, residential, mixed use, public realm, offices, and leisure. To each and every one we bring a new approach, a fresh perspective, informed by our experience but driven by the desire to create a new solution, a new vision, a new way to live and work.

Some architects specialise in one area; we prefer a more diverse approach. We don’t specialise in one particular discipline, we specialise in transformation. We successfully improve the most compromised buildings and sites, however tight the commercial, urban, or planning constraints. We enjoy working with the challenges and opportunities that each project presents and finding solutions that are responsive, logical, and able to stand the test of time.

We ensure a personal approach to our clients and projects and as a result, each of us is directly responsible for the success of our projects. We share an openness to new design ideas that is also present in our approach to the technology of architecture; We lead on design, but we’re always pragmatic, delivering practical designs on time and on budget, and dedicated to building in the most sustainable and efficient way. To do this we work with the very best technologists, consultants, suppliers and manufacturers.

Barr Gazetas Team

All of our staff contribute to the success of the practice with a broad range of skills and experience. The majority are qualified architects, working with architectural assistants, interior designers, as well as technical specialists.

A collective input from our diverse team each with their own specialist skills provides the quality in design and delivery through our diverse portfolio of work that we are known for. We continue to thrive as a practice and we appreciate all of our staff.
