Francesco Pierazzi Architects is an emerging, design-led architectural practice set up in London in 2009. The practice has a well established experience in a wide range of sectors and scales, both in the United Kingdom and abroad, from small extensions to substantial interior refurbishment and re-modelling, including retail and furniture design. Francesco Pierazzi Architects regularly take part in international design competitions.

We strongly believe that each project should tell a story and so we organize the composition of each design in such a way as to tell that story, through the organization of space, the modulation of light or the interpretation of the materials we choose to use. The narrative draws encouragement from the client’s brief. The location in which the projects are to be set also generates inspirational moves. We have cultivated a particular interest in understanding the relationship between architecture and other artistic disciplines and how one - architecture - can be manipulated and influenced by the others. Undoubtedly art and literature have imbued most of our projects. The challenge is to transfer these forms of inspiration into the setting of the clients’ briefs. A feedback process - where influences are looked at again, once projects are completed - encourages the practice to re-assess their beliefs and approach to design.

Whether one project is an opportunity to celebrate the ordinary or, vice versa, the extraordinary, is the consistent approach in resolving our clients‘ ambitions and the complexity or simplicity of their brief - regardless of size and budget -, that has become the starting point of an ongoing research into the rituals of the inhabitation of domestic and urban spaces.

A sense of movement, rotation and dynamism is often found in most of our projects, being they public, commercial, residential, follies or temporary structures and installations. We strongly believe that a space with dynamic qualities can enhance people‘s spirit and contribute to engage with the space that they use. We obtain this by a clever and careful arrangement of the spaces, by activating the senses, or via a physical interaction with the elements that inform each and every one of our projects.

The opportunity, over the years, to design spaces or objects in environments with very diverse characteristics - and in different countries around the world - has enriched our approach to design. Each project becomes a unique opportunity to investigate how to resolve and engage with a comprehensive variety of briefs.

Reviews

We first used Francesco Pierazzi Architects in 2014, when he undertook the design and management of a Utility/ shower room  extension.  Four years down the line I am just as happy with the outcome as I was then.  I therefore asked Francesco to design my kitchen and again to manage the project using the same builders. The project included two new doors and a new extractor duct to the outside.  I am delighted with the result and will certainly use him again in any future projects.    Francesco has a wonderful ‘eye’ and a clear vision of what can be achieved.  Although he has strong opinions he listens and suggests sensible alternatives, putting forward design ideas that one could never think of oneself.   He understands materials and fitments and works very well with the builders to allow their input as well. And I also agree with other reviewers, a strong sense of light. Input worth every penny!

We worked with Francesco Pierazzi Architects last year when we completely refurbished our loft bedroom and built an en-suite bathroom. Francesco beautifully redesigned the space and ran the whole project. The loft space (as in most Victorian houses) was awkward and it was only because of Francesco’s imaginative design and experience that we could get a fully functioning and visually striking bathroom without taking anything away from the bedroom size and airy feeling.  Francesco took care of everything, he sorted out the council permission, came up with several design solutions, he selected marvellous materials for us and ran a tender, eventually supervising the whole building process with the amazing builder Andrea and his team meanwhile we were on holiday!! We could not be more pleased with his professional advices, precision and clean design. Francesco has a great eye for light and he is very knowledgeable on materials, plus very budget conscious. We are really delighted with the results and could not recommend him more!

Francesco worked with us to create a dual purpose kitchen/diner addition; both for domestic & commercial use as a day nursery.  With few fixed notions of what we wanted, Francesco had to tease out our requirements, aspiration & personal preferences from discussions & observations when getting to know my family & our unique circumstances.  Our requirements were that the building should reflect & sit comfortably within the outdoor environment & it’s structure should not detract from the view of the garden from existing doors & windows. The design was inspired, with its angled roofs & the use of ceiling timbers; that not only protected the view of the garden, but also enhanced it; drawing your eye towards the garden & creating walls of glass which in effect form living interactive wallpaper. Creating a modern extension to an Edwardian house on the edge of a conservation area, Francesco’s knowledge of the local planning department’s objectives & his experience of working with them made a great difference to the speed & associated cost of the planning application. Francesco undertook all communication with the planning department, simplifying the process & ensuring that the outcome was an extension to our home which improved the functionality of the building & the way that we live in it & that simply makes us very happy. Francesco’s passion for the project, attention to detail, selection of materials & finish made all of the difference to the outcome. But, where he truly excels, is how he works with natural light & shadows to create an atmosphere which lifts your spirits & soothes your soul.
