PROFILE

Von X Architects is a small studio with big experiences in complex residential, retail and hospitality projects. Notable project experiences in central London prior to establishing the studio in 2019 are Regent’s Crescent Grade I listed1 redevelopment in Regent’s Park, Harrods Grade II* listed2 department store in Knightsbridge, and The Bryanston super-prime3 residential development overlooking Hyde Park.

The studio’s unique selling proposition is where architecture meets art, branding and interiors coherently. We achieve this by integrating each element within our design from day one with collaborations with other architects, designers, clients, consultants, and users.

From the straightforward interior design refurbishment through to the complex multi-unit residential development, we work carefully with limited resources and apply the same design thinking regardless of the project budget.

1 A heritage building of exceptional interest, making only 2.5% of listed buildings in the UK.

2 A particularly important building of more than special interest in the UK.

3 Homes worth upwards of £10 million.
