URBAN INFILL

ARCHITECTURE + PLANNING

We are an architecture, urbanism and interior architecture practice that specialises in maximising the potential of properties and development sites in and around London. Formed in 2009, Urban Infill is recognised as one of the most prolific London architecture and design studios. With considerable experience within all London boroughs, the practice has a deep knowledge and understanding of local planning policies. Our work is predominantly in conservation areas and/or with listed buildings; our careful analytical starting point ensures that successful planning applications lead on to innovative architectural solutions and exemplary interiors.

Urban Infill has worked with a wide range of clients from private individuals to global property investment companies that seek to realise the full potential from their portfolios.

All designs are carefully developed to suit their environment with a multi-faceted design approach, ensuring each scheme is unique to its context, achieving the best flow, light and space, while the objectives of the client are met. We are experienced in and relish working on projects of all scales, whether it be a compact but luxurious pied-a-terre in central London or a commercial property portfolio providing thousands of square meters of Grade A office space our obsessive design approach remains the same, leading to projects that we are incredibly proud of.

(This is our ‘left brain’).

U.I. Projects focuses on interior design and special design commissions.  The portfolio includes a number of unique private residences, a masterplan for an exclusive marine resort in Thailand, as well as the branding and stage design for London’s biggest ever live music event, BT London Live, which ran throughout the 2012 Olympic Games.

(This is our ‘right brain’).

"We originally purchased our mews house in the Hans Town Conservation Area of the Cadogan Estate about 25 years ago. At the time of purchase we undertook a modest modernisation of the property. About 5 years ago we decided to undertake a significant interior renovation project including creating a basement. The project involved multiple planning consents, and following a recommendation from a neighbour who had just finished their own renovation using U.I; we engaged their services to design and guide us through the project. It was important for us to fully optimise the architectural and footprint potential of the house within local planning parameters, whilst maintaining the integrity of its original classic mews house exterior design. Urban Infill successfully obtained all of the requisite consents for a major project of modifications, interior enhancements and the creation of a basement. They assisted us in engaging and guiding an excellent construction firm who completed the work to a very high standard, on time and on budget. We believe the final result speaks for itself and has been much admired by all who have seen it. We are grateful to Urban Infill & U.I. Projects for their excellent design and project management, and have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending them."

"Having worked with Urban Infill & U.I Projects since 2015, I am constantly impressed with their attention to detail, analytical approach and exemplary finished product. I have been responsible for the delivery of over 10,000 homes in and around London and recognise good quality when I see it; the ‘left brain’ ‘right brain’ sides of the practice (Urban Infill producing architecture and U.I. Projects interior architecture) work in harmony to ensure practical and creative parts of the brief are always exceeded. "
