making places
for people

People should be at the heart of any design. The positive impact a building can have on its users is the true measure of success of any building project. 

listening to
your stories

Listening carefully to clients and building users helps to identify the unique set of requirements for each project. Combining this with in depth research about the local context and sustainability enables a clear brief to be agreed. 

The Castle

A new development behind a retained facade in the heart of north London providing 5000 sq. ft. of commercial space at basement and ground floor level with 7000 sq. ft. of residential accommodation above.

solving problems & seeing opportunities

Considered, thoughtful architecture can promote a sense of wellbeing, social value and community cohesion. PCA are therefore committed to giving equal weight to intelligent, people centred design that improves the quality of life for its users as well as the function, cost and buildability requirements of the building. 

Nicola was the consummate, calm professional throughout the planning and build of our extension. Nicola really listened and designed our home to suit our family needs, idiosyncrasies and even specific pieces of furniture. She even realised un-spoken needs. As a result our family enjoys living in our home even more than before.

realising potential

Once the brief is established, we work hard to find creative solutions to the unique requirements of each project. Every project is different, and we give an individually tailored response to suit the specific needs of your brief. Communicating our ideas clearly and simply and explaining the process as we move through the project is essential.
