Our story

Hailing from the north of England, a trio of designers founded the practice in the autumn of 2016 with the sole aim of delivering impactful and memorable architecture. Established following a number of ‘word of mouth’ commissions the team has expanded to suit our growing portfolio.


We provide a refreshingly open, down to earth attitude to a complex craft. We warmly welcome ideas of all shapes and sizes, from the highly conceptual to the purely functional.


Starting out with the successful delivery of small residential projects in and around London, our presence has expanded across the UK and into Europe. Our ethos is simple … how can we unlock the maximum potential of a given property (or site) in line with the specific requirements of each client. We apply technical and creative prowess to any brief, delivering projects from artistic installations that inspire wonder, to residential spaces that make the perfect home.


Our team is committed to making the built environment a better place.

We collaborate closely with a diverse group of people ranging from master craftsmen and artists to academics. The diversity of our backgrounds and partnerships allows us to offer a unique, dedicated service delivered on time and on budget!


Brass Architecture have been working with me on my residential development for the last few years. This timing was driven by the complexity of owning a listed property in a designated Green Belt within Harrow. I am based outside of the UK and the Brass team were able to fully manage the project through conference calls and emails. They were swift in responses and exceeded my expectations. Professionally I manage a real estate portfolio worth over GBP 5billion. The quality of the deliverables prepared by Ricky and the team for my residential property were exceptional and not dissimilar to applications I would expect for multi-million-pound development applications.

BRASS Architecture designed, gained consent and implemented the works on site in a rapid turnaround last year for a large garden studio at our property in North London. The team have been easy to work with and on hand to answer all our queries quickly. Highly recommend working with BRASS!

I have worked with Brass for a number of years on projects across the UK. Main works developing residential and commercial feasibility reports for funding purposes. Upon my return to Slovakia, Brass have assisted in the design of a large masterplan in Bratislava. This includes the design of a new church, new school, various residential offerings and public spaces. We have no hesitation recommending the Brass team!
