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.

Francesco is an exceptional architect who I would strongly recommend to others. I engaged Francesco to design and manage major renovations to my Grade II Listed home. Some key points are: - Excellent customer focus: Francesco took time to understand my requirements and personal style. Francesco has a rare ability to take someone's vague ideas then transform and enhance them into a clear vision. - Quality of designs: Franscesco's designs were innovative and original. Every room in the house has a "talking point" which garners compliments from visitors. - Helpful, beyond architecture: Francesco consistently goes above and beyond his role as architect offering advice on interior design and even giving up weekends to visit furniture stores to help ensure the final outcome is perfect. - Calm & Friendly: Francesco's experience and calm demeanour during the (few) more stressful periods of the built was invaluable to me. If you are looking for a high quality, passionate and committed architect then I would recommend Francesco without hesitation.

Francesco went out of his way to transform my home into a more beautiful place with a far better use of space. His flair for design, attention to detail and professional approach made what could have been a stressful experience an almost painless one and I am delighted with the result. He is a reliable, trustworthy and innovative architect that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Honestly, if you need an architect, Francesco is the one.  His approach is candid and intuitive and he has great vision. I couldn’t have been more impressed when we used his services recently for our kitchen extension and re-design project.  We started with a large but awkward space and we really didn’t know how to achieve the family kitchen / dining layout we wanted within the space we had.  We initially spoke to a couple of kitchen designers but no-one had the vision to see what Francesco saw, he made suggestions that we hadn’t even considered and once we spoke to him we knew immediately that we were on the right path. We are so happy with the finished project – with Francesco’s help we now have the kitchen and dining / living space we always wanted.  His ideas for colour, finish and design have been perfect every time. He has the great skill of listening to what you want and making it happen, all the time keeping everything within the project balanced.  He listened to our suggestions every time and came up with clear and detailed solutions that made sense and kept our kitchen functional but also aesthetically beautiful.  I would highly recommend.
