About WellstudioArchitecture. 

We are a practice  based in Chelsea Harbour, London, who create architecture with wellbeing at its heart. We create spaces which are light, airy, peaceful and comfortable to be in with an emphasis on nature and human connection.

With each project, regardless of size, we work closely with you to develop a well defined brief.

We then lead you by the hand through the design, planning and construction processes to deliver a high-quality product which meets your needs. We have a good knowledge of London’s local planning authorities and a very strong record of obtaining planning permission for our clients.

Our approach works for small and large projects alike - from designing & extending homes to creating spaces for family togetherness and developing larger scale coliving spaces which thrive.

We work closely with a range of consultants from structural engineers to  construction cost experts, from environmental specialists to tried and tested contractors, enabling us to bring their expertise to bear when delivering the best project outcomes for you.
