Practice Profile

Nic Antony Architects Ltd is an energetic team of experienced Architects, Technologists, Interior Designers and Project Managers with offices in Central London & Essex. We are a design led studio who believe that quality design yields economic gain and satisfied clients. We pride ourselves on being thorough at all stages of a project and are particularly effective at obtaining planning permission.

We do not specialise in any particular sector, we specialise in all sectors. We understand how buildings work and apply the best design practice based on our wide experience. Good ideas are often transferred between sectors, to the benefit of the project and the client.

We work both in the UK and internationally, currently we have projects in Northern Thailand, South Africa, Cyprus and Spain.

We offer a full architectural service from initial consultation to a completed project including bespoke interior design where required. A first class in-house visualisation service is offered alongside our projects if required that produces photo realistic visuals which prove invaluable in communication and developing design ideas. We offer a free initial consultation to both new and existing clients. From experience, these always prove very informative, enjoyable and inspiring.

Our fees are competitive. We understand that cost certainty is crucial to all clients, particularly in the current economic climate. Therefore for your peace of mind we always offer fixed fees for all stages to a completed project at the initial free consultation without any hidden costs.
