As a multidisciplinary design studio specialising in residential architecture, we serve clients who want a completely bespoke, truly luxurious home – across London, throughout the UK and in Europe. Creating living environments that serve as a backdrop for exceptional lives is at the heart of what we do. The homes we create inspire our clients, evoke emotion and reflect their individuality.
The team at Christopher David Design features a wealth of expertise and experience across the disciplines of architecture, interior design, landscape design and project management – everything needed to bring to life a thoughtful, imaginative vision that accommodates the client’s needs, tastes and aspirations.
We take great care and pride in our craft, from the first lines drawn to the final finishes installed. This turnkey service encompasses all stages of the residential design and build process, from concept and planning to sourcing, site management and delivery. Our project management expertise enhances the client experience and ensures the design vision is interpreted as intended.
As residential architects, we’ve developed our comprehensive services over the years by working with the best designers, artists, and craftspeople in the industry to deliver a richly layered, nuanced home. The key is in our relationships. We liaise directly with builders, trades and other consultants on behalf of our clients, ensuring that the creative vision is interpreted as intended.
These accomplished tradespersons deliver exquisite workmanship and exceptional results. They work with the highest-quality materials, using the most innovative techniques as well as cherished traditional methods that have stood the test of time. Our strong relationships with local contractors, trades and suppliers ensure our projects are built and fitted to the highest quality.
Our Bespoke Approach
The experienced team at Christopher David Design approach each brief with the benefit of deep expertise and intuitive vision. Our studio’s signature, in-depth interview process allows us to thoroughly explore each client’s needs, preferences and lifestyle, expertly establishing a personalised vision for their home.
This comprehensive, personalised approach to residential architecture captures every detail: enhancing the existing merits of a space, embracing its historical and environmental context, and envisioning a design that encompasses the homeowner’s needs and tastes, preferences and plans. For each and every project, we invest in thorough research, studying local surroundings, architectural history, spatial relationships, relevant materials, natural light progressions, and more.
The deep level of understanding we aim for in our client relationships helps establish a thoughtful, creative vision – which will carry the project through from scope and concept sketches, to design and planning, to implementation and completion.
The result is completely bespoke luxury residential architecture that seamlessly blends time-honoured craftsmanship with innovative design concepts, for captivating spaces that perfectly reflect each homeowner’s desired outcomes.
Well-designed spaces can move, touch, and transform. Luxury residential architecture elevates everyday life to an art form, and our creative process celebrates that.
All our projects start on the drawing board, finding endless inspiration in blending a fresh, creative perspective with the time-tested techniques of the oldest masters of the craft.
Whilst we fully embrace the potential of technology to enhance the design process, we believe that the architecture of a high-end home is first and foremost an art form. We always begin designing with traditional visualisation – first sketching concepts by hand, in keeping with the tactile, artistic origins of our craft.
Exploring and testing multiple ideas and designs in this way – before the development of those concepts – allows us to deliver the very best schemes to meet the brief. By listening, implementing, and documenting the design process we create a collaborative environment between our studio and clients. Building this relationship in the early stages of a residential project creates a solid foundation for the construction phase and an enjoyable experience overall.
