BUILD Architecture Awards 2022 20 Apr22596 acked up by its previous work in providing high-end residential and commercial architecture and interior design, Studio VA’s, attention to detail and artistic prowess has secured it a place in London’s list of top ‘Up and coming’ design studios. Its efforts have become synonymous with exemplary design sensitivity and wellbalanced spatial awareness. Recently, with one of its London architecture and refurbishment projects; ‘Project Hereward’, Studio VA recreated a space with the simplicity of traditional design and the elegance of modern stylings. Simple materials, bespoke craftsmanship and carefully curated relationships between the various elements, transformed a typical London terraced house into a sophisticated and contemporary open plan living space full of light, textures and colours. Black stained oak joinery sits successfully in harmony with the pixel-effect tiled floor and the burgundy-coloured exposed structural steels. The result is a striking affair, one that seems otherwise unexpected until one enters the house, where the true magic is unveiled. Building its spaces around moments, environments, and feeling, it uses its expert guiding hand to adapt a clients’ wishes in order to make a project the best it can be. Therefore, its projects become a true mutual passion project between designer and client, one that involves a bespoke design process, in which every element is tailored to fit the individual. In London, this has allowed it to cultivate a reputation for adding immense value to an investor’s property, applying its knowledge of careful, considerate design throughout the process; indeed, this is what has allowed it to recently expand outside of London. Now working in London and Cyprus, it aims to diversify its portfolio even further in the future.
