Patalab Architecture

We are your partner to realize ambitious architecture and design projects

Founded in 2008, Patalab Architecture has since been providing extensive architectural and design services to British and international clients. Centrally located in Clerkenwell, in the immediate vicinity of the City of London, we are currently working on numerous ambitious projects in London, other parts of the UK, and Europe.

Based on many years of experience delivering projects that meet the high aspirations of our British and international clients, we have built a broad network of project partners alongside an in-depth knowledge of the construction process, building regulations, procurement, market conditions and planning policies. The extent of our experience enables us to take a holistic approach to designing to ensure statutory requirements and the reality of the construction industry are integrated with design conception.

In close dialogue between our clients and other project stake holders, we conduct thorough research and design studies to fully understand the potential of each construction project. Responding to specific project objectives, we work together with specialist consultants, expert advisers and local craftsmen as well as with international manufacturers and suppliers in order to meet highest quality standards.

The Patalab team is made up of talented and dedicated architects and designers. Our aim is to offer our clients a very personal approach and services tailored to their needs, developing and realising innovative design solutions with great attention to detail. Our award-winning projects testify to this.

Our range of projects include new build, refurbishment, restoration of listed buildings and interior design for residential, office and cultural projects.

Patalab is Chartered Practice of the Royal Institute of British Architects and the German Chamber of Architects.

We are passionate architects and designers. Our award-winning designs give evidence of our expertise.
Our ambition - satisfied clients.

Site development

We carry out strategic reviews for the development of premises to unlock the site’s potential and assess planning requirements.

Refurbishment

We are passionate about working with existing buildings. Based on a thorough investigation we develop sensitive and innovative approaches how to transform existing structures into contemporary spaces.

Interior Design

Whether residential or office building, optimal organization of the interior spaces is vital. For us, the boundaries between architecture and interior design are fluid. Accordingly, we offer not only architectural but also interior design services. These include, among other things, design of all internal surfaces, the design of built-in furniture, proposals for loose furniture and the development of lighting concepts.

New Build

We enjoy delivering innovative and site-specific new build projects, producing sensitive but powerful designs that compliment their context. Striking exteriors and beautifully proportioned interiors are accentuated by rich materiality, attention to detail and exceptional craftsmanship - attributes our studio is known for.

Heritage

Each listed building is to be assessed on its own merit. Repair and restoration on one hand and modern technology and construction methods on the other can both be appropriate responses depending on the context. In our approach we appreciate and accentuate achievements of previous generations and seek to complement these situations with our own contemporary interventions.
