“The College has worked in the past with Belsize Architects on an award winning contemporary design to replace a listed boathouse on a very sensitive site on the Isis. This followed an invited competition organized by the College. More recently Belsize Architects have been retained by the College for the design of a new breed of student accommodation for a complex in the conservation area of residential North Oxford . We feel confident that Belsize Architects are perfectly suited and equipped to take on challenging sites and we would happily recommend them to other potential clients.”

“The Brassworks is a stylish and successful addition to the Church Commissioners’ property portfolio in central London. Belsize Architects brought their knowledge and skill to the project, and we are pleased with the results. The building successfully combines the building’s history and architectural heritage with contemporary design and high-specification interiors.
The Brassworks is a successful project and all the apartments were let almost immediately and our tenants certainly appear to be happy with their new homes. For the Church Commissioners, it is an excellent example of sensitive conversion of a former commercial building into new residential use, and validates our policy of continuing to invest in The Hyde Park Estate.”

“It’s always refreshing to come across a bit of inspired design in the most mundane places. The locker room at the London School of Economics is now a village of cabinets with houseshaped profiles and bold graphics. Designed by Belsize Architects, the room, located in an awkwardly shaped two-storey cube in the LSE’s Old Building is now an interesting space that is both exciting and inviting.”

“Over the past few years Belsize Architects have been our architect of choice in designing high-quality residential, affordable housing and mixed-use schemes, for our growing development portfolio. They thrive on designing exciting buildings, but they also really understand projects from a developer’s point of view, building solutions into the design from the outset, that tackle constraints relating to finances, program and site sensitive issues. They are a very capable and creative firm and a pleasure to do business with.”

“Belsize Architects’ creative approach, attention to detail, and their ability to deliver inspiring architecture, are the reasons why I have repeatedly appointed them to design both commercial and residential projects for me, mostly in the UK but also in France, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. They develop clever design solutions where no immediately obvious answers seem possible and frequently turn problems into opportunities, always looking at ways to add value throughout the process. I find them professional, reliable, and a pleasure to work with.”

“We have worked with Belsize Architects on two major conversions and refurbishments over the past ten years. Both had their challenges. They excelled in the design of the projects, marrying our desire for contemporary design and living within the walls of existing buildings that were listed and / or situated in conservation areas. Belsize Architects also displayed an innate ability to combine its own ideas on design with those of its clients, within the strict parameters of the overall design philosophy. Now we move on to our next project, in the mountains of Switzerland.”

“We saw a few architects before we made up our minds, but Belsize Architects seemed a good fit. This kind of work is one of the most disruptive and challenging things you can do but in the end it was even better than we had visualised. It’s such a fantastic space.”

“Belsize Architects really listened to us. The whole house has been totally updated without losing any of the character. We did wonder at first if we should have been more conservative but now that the extension has been built we’re very glad we trusted our architect and chose something more exciting.”
