Stagg Architects is a creative architectural office focused on delivering high quality architecture to the specific needs of our clients.

Established in 2011, we have an exceptionally loyal client base comprised of large PLCs as well as private individuals. We are able to provide the services expected from a large architectural company but with a more personal small-company approach, enabling us to provide the best of both worlds. We specialise in residential and mixed-use schemes, but our experience enables us to work across a wide range of sectors including offices, schools, retail and restaurants, as well as cultural buildings.

On every project we strive to maximise the opportunities and achieve the finest solution through an imaginative and creative design process. We also focus on detail to ensure our designs are practical and deliverable, optimising the various demands of cost, technology and regulation. Our goal is to make more from less, to focus attention where it makes a difference, and to use our knowledge and experience to create lasting buildings which will delight and inspire for years to come.

Our porfolio of projects and highly respected clients are testament to our ability to provide exciting concept designs, obtain planning permission on difficult sites, and deliver during the construction stage.

Our London Bridge office is run by a friendly and experienced team who have worked together for many years.
