GK Architects Limited
GK Architects is a dynamic Architect Led Design and Build company based in Kensington West London and Newcastle.
The company specialises in high quality residential and commercial sectors, focusing on delivering outstanding designs, maximising the potential of existing buildings as well as new.
We have experience of working nationally on complex and sensitive locations and have a thorough understanding of the planning system and construction process. The majority of our work is based in central London and surrounding boroughs where our single-point of responsibility and one stop shop project delivery approach works hand in hand with our clients from concept, design, project management, construction and completion.
Our design philosophy is driven by working with the client rather then imposing our own preferences. The process is like a dialogue where we learn and try to understand our clients’ needs and likes to design a home that is truly perfect and has a sense of belonging. As architects and builders we are rigorous throughout the design and construction process and we truly believe that high quality design and build can only be achieved were there is a complete continuity with an architect in charge of the design and construction.
We have adopted Building Information Modelling (BIM), which is deemed to be the future standard in construction industry. The technology enables us to produce intelligent building model based process that supports an early feasibility studies, planning, detailed design, construction and management of a building faster, more economically and with less environmental impact.
We are also an RIBA Chartered Practice, which is a mark of excellence and an assurance of the practice’s quality, design excellence and service.
