What We Do

Alexander Owen Architecture is a London based design studio with a simple passion - to enhance daily life through great design.

A combination of extensive technical knowledge coupled with a thirst for exploring conceptual ideas allows us to deliver functional space with aspirational style.

how we think


Places & Spaces

Places & Spaces

We are dedicated to providing clients with engaging, inspired and sustainable environments for contemporary lifestyles.

Our residential projects range from new-build zero-carbon houses and kitchen extensions, to loft conversions and interior refurbishments. Whatever the size or scope we pride ourselves on designing homes that are as unique as their owners.

Our commercial projects range from office refurbishments to brand experiences, but no matter what the brief, we deliver distinct and compelling environments that effortlessly convey a brand’s character and identity.

Style & Substance

Style & Substance

We use the latest technology to provide a fully integrated design service that holistically assesses the opportunities and challenges presented by each site and each client brief.

Scientific tools such as sun-path studies through to carbon footprint analysis allow us to sensitively respond to a site and its context. Artistic techniques such as hand sketching and computer rendering allow us to consider options from material finish to lighting design to suit a client’s style and taste.

Together these instruments allow us to deliver imaginative and tailored environments that are visually compelling as well as functionally efficient.

Creativity & Empathy

Creativity & Empathy

We believe that the most successful projects can only be achieved by putting the client at the heart of the design process. We pride ourselves on delivering empathetic, creative, and bespoke solutions for each and every client.

We understand that design is complex - both a pragmatic process as well as a conceptual exercise – but we aim through creativity and empathy to make our design process as easy and stress-free for our clients as possible.

Listening to and engaging with our client’s from the outset is what best places us to create solutions that fulfil aspirations as well as exceed expectations.


how we work


Recognised industry work stages organise the process of briefing, designing, constructing, maintaining, operating and using buildings into a number of key stages. The content of these stages may vary or overlap to suit specific project requirements, however our process is underpinned by 4 principle actions.

These principle actions can be subdivided into a range of services, which are discussed with the client and assessed against the brief prior to commissioning. By drawing up a detailed schedule of services, we are able to produce and deliver the requisite level of information at the right time, during the right stage.


Design is complex. Working with us is simple.
