Architects in Westminster
KSR Architects is a leading design practice working in Westminster and providing a high quality service to areas including Mayfair and Marylebone W1, Belgravia and Pimlico SW1, Bayswater and Paddington W2, Maida Vale W9, and St Johns Wood NW8. Most of these areas are covered by conservation areas and often involve working with listed buildings, and we have thus established a close working relationship with Westminster Planning Department to enable us to optimise the site potential and deliver the most effective design solution often including placemaking and urban regeneration.
The areas of Westminster where we work are generally high value and densely developed therefore a more creative approach is required in order to optimise site values and maximise investment. Our innovative design-led approach and this has been acknowledged with a number of industry awards.
Design-led Architects in Westminster
KSR Architects portfolio is built on relationships and communication. Our cosmopolitan teams in London and China are able to bring their knowledge and experience to projects to create exceptional and innovative designs. We have a wide range of tools at our disposal for design development. Our 3D printer is a vital tool in visually expressing complex sites; our VR capability enables us to demonstrate the impact of a building within its environment; whilst a Revit model allows integration of structure and services. For example, in St Johns Wood we unlocked a difficult semi-industrial site with significant infrastructure problems by creating a detailed Revit model of underground services. This enabled us to achieve planning permission on the site for The Landseer, a development of 120 luxury apartments with leisure facilities.
Not far from Westminster, KSR Architects obtained planning permission for a 13-storey mixed use development spanning two Conservation Areas behind Kings Cross, and leading to the emerging Camley Street Regeneration Area. The design was designed collaboratively with the architects for adjacent sites. KSR’s 3D printer was a vital tool in visually expressing the complexity of the scheme. The development won the New London Architecture Award 2015 for Best Unbuilt Mixed Use Development, and was shortlisted for the Mayor’s Prize.
