Stefan Shaw Studio is an RIBA charted architecture, interior and urban design studio based in Peckham - the creative heartland of South London.

Our approach is respectful and responsible; always on the lookout for positive social impact and ways to add creative value. We love complex placemaking challenges and have a successful track record of developing innovative proposals in sensitive heritage contexts.

Our hand-crafted projects are mindful of their impact upon people, culture and the planet, and draw on the power of stories to communicate.  We’re interested in strategic frameworks, how things fit together, the in-between spaces that provide the glue, and value collaboration and craft in a world full of Ctrl C, Ctrl V.

If you share these ambitions and strive for design greater than a sum of its parts, we look forward to working with you (our number is on the bottom of the page...)
We operate in the window of opportunity from imagination to the real, and translate an understanding of humanity, through a passion for exploration into design. People live, work, play, love, grow, are born and die in our buildings. Our roll ensures they are brought forward with the flexibility and adaptability to grow and expand to meet the needs of those who use them. 

Stefan Shaw Studio is about thoughtfulness, energy, clarity, and an understanding that its easier to copy an existing model than make something new. The act of creation challenges preconception. We are constantly looking for people and places that share our ambitions for the future, and who want to work with us to create it.

We offer different architectural services across all RIBA stages, in the UK and internationally.
Our services include:
