Inhouse Design Associates is an architecture and design practice founded in 1984 involved in residential, commercial, educational, cultural and retail projects.

We aim to understand and engage with clients’ briefs in a fresh and vital way so that each design takes advantage of the unique conditions of its site and makes sense within a specific cultural, social and commercial context. 

Inhouse Design Associates works collaboratively with our first-time clients and those of more than twenty years’ standing, enabling them to imagine and commission buildings that are inspiring, functional and cost effective. We take seriously our responsibility for seeing projects through from concept to completion and value the constructive working relationships that we have created with commercial developers, community groups, residential care home providers, educational institutions and private individuals.

Our recent self-initiated projects include work as architect-developers of our former offices in Finsbury Park and the conversion of an office building to residential use.


With a strong record in gaining planning permission on confined and challenging sites in both urban and rural situations, we work closely with local professionals with whom we have built up a successful working relationship. We also value our long-standing exchanges of personnel and ideas with other practices in Europe and Africa.
