V1 Studio Architects and Designers aim to elevate your space to the next level.




From London to the South Coast of Devon, we've designed comfortable and livable homes for families of all shapes and sizes. Our emphasis is always on the creation of seamless harmony between the functionality of space and it's relationship to natural light.

We have extensive experience designing residential interiors, but also creating unique branding for cafe-bars and offices, including sourcing fixtures, fittings, lighting, individual pieces or bespoke custom built furniture.


The relationship between a building and the internal spaces within do not exist in isolation and the relationship with the context within which they sit is an integral part of the overall design concept.

Warm design for an imposing townhouse in Dartmouth Park


The owners required the complete refurbishment of this large townhouse in Dartmouth Park, arranged over five levels. This involved the remodelling of all of the internal spaces including the creation of a new studio at the top of the property with beautiful views across the orchards of the catholic girls school beyond the rear garden.

A Georgian crescent house gets a signature new look.

A rich palette of contrasting colours, textures and materials combined with an Industrial aesthetic created an interior with a highly crafted quality which ran throughout the four floors of this Islington townhouse. The project focus was on the creation of warm and snug spaces with a very English feel. Aged brass ironmongery, antique bronze toggle light switches and individually sourced unique light fittings carried the design ethos through to the smallest details. Interior design and bespoke furniture Victoria John BJA Architects, with Martyn Clarke Architecture and DeVol Kitchens.

A stunning arrival to an iconic tower

Tower 42 is one of the tallest skyscrapers in London (it’s original name was the Nat West Tower, designed by Richard Seifert) and is located in the heart of The City. It is a multi-tenanted building, comprising Grade A office space and restaurant facilities, and at the top it houses Vertigo 42, a champagne bar with views overlooking the most famous landmarks in this international city.

Lateral living on Regents Park Canal


This city flat, located in Islington in an industrial warehouse style block, overlooks all of the picturesque water life floating by below on Regents Park Canal. The original apartment was damaged by flooding and required completely stripping out, and refitting to a very high standard, to create a sleek new open plan apartment in the heart of Central London.

Enchanting terrace in the heart of Crouch End village


When originally purchased as family home, this snug terrace hadn’t been touched for thirty years, but although compact in area, the house had amazing ‘Tardis’ like qualities. Long in plan, the challenge was to open up the centre of the house and flood it with natural light from the roof space down. The central stair space was opened up to create a top lit triple height volume, filling the house with sunlight reaching all the way down to the previously gloomy, pokey entrance hall. In order to achieve this the Design Studio at the top of the house was cleverly accessed by a space saving oak spiral stair, and a fully opening pavement cafe style window with external balustrade opened the space up to spectacular rooftop views across the Crouch End rooftops, and Alexandra Palace beyond. Solid Iroko sliding-folding doors opened the bright rear kitchen out onto the garden beyond.

Family home in the Hertfordshire countryside


Potters Bar is about as far as you can travel to find all the benefits of green space and country living whilst still benefitting from proximity to Cockfosters, the last stop on the Piccadilly line, and access to all London offers as an international world class city. The Clients purchased this rambling Victorian detached house in Hertfordshire in search of space and tranquility. It required complete renovation, with family living concentrated at the heart of the home, a large open plan kitchen living space with views over an expansive sunny rear orchard garden containing beautiful mature trees.
