Studio Verve Architects is a London-based design-led practice founded by Vivian Chan, supported by a team specialising in architecture and interior design.
Having worked for more than a decade in Asia and UK for practices like Foster + Partners and David Morley Architects, Vivian set up the studio as a direct channel to engage clients and realise good designs in projects big or small.
At Studio Verve Architects, we are enthusiastic about designing for the everyday and the extraordinary. We have worked on new builds in green-field sites, as well as listed and conservation buildings in central London. Our current portfolio includes a contemporary ‘near Passive-haus standard’ sustainable farmhouse in the green belt of Ormskirk, luxury warehouse conversion apartments in Clerkenwell and Dalston amongst a few other bespoke residential and commercial projects. We have recently completed a project in a Grade-II listed house in Hampstead, a new cafe in Spitalfields and a duplex in Islington.
Our designs are contemporary and founded on a keen awareness for sustainability, careful engagement with both the client's requirements and sensitivity to the site. We are excited about the discovery of new materials and new ways of putting things together; we also strive to work with artists and craft men to achieve a seamless product.
We believe the process is as important as the product; we strive towards a happy and inspiring working environment both as an office and with our clients.
