About Us

Charles Barclay is known for designing modernist-minimalist architecture that is bold, atmospheric and creates a strong sense of place: ‘modernism with heart’. He and his team of architects have built a portfolio of elegant top-end residential projects in London and across the UK, underpinned by inventive and progressive designs for schools and other public arenas. Charles honed his design skills working in New York and for American architects in London and does not feel constrained by the cultural mores of either old or new worlds; he identifies and develops the essence of a project, the strong design idea that makes it special. He works personally with each and every one of his clients to create projects that are both architecturally accomplished and deeply personal to those who have commissioned the work and will occupy it. Architectural excellence, he believes, can only emerge from a genuine design conversation between the client and their architect. The office collaborate closely with a select group of consultants and specialist builders to ensure the design is delivered, uncompromised, to the last detail, within cost constraints and with the minimum of fuss.
