Studio 51 North is an architecture firm based in London.
The Studio covers all aspects of the design process, undertaking different ranges of projects from hospitality to residential including commercial and retail. The scale of these projects varies greatly, from master plans to project delivery, from estates to private residences in the UK and abroad.
At Studio 51 North we think the right solution should be simple and clear. We like to use a contemporary language because we have to talk about our ‘era’.
The richness of the languages is to mix different idioms and to overlay different historical periods.
To realise a project means to imagine a possible solution to answer a question in the best possible way.
