I would very happily recommend this firm who designed our extension to our ground floor maisonette. Great care was taken to ensure the finished article lived up to the designs.


I'v recently been using Zandi Architects for an extension project. The architects has been very diligent and has always been willing to talk us through any issues. I'd recommend them to a friend.


I'v worked with Zandi Architects on a number of projects and have always found them to be excellent.

Area of Expertise

Whether you are a developer planning a new-build or commercial space, the owner of a listed building or a homeowner wishing to build an extension, we offer creative & bespoke solutions that are both stylish and economical. 

New Build:

The design concept of each project is developed to meet, and indeed exceed, the client brief. We focus on maximising space and designing practical and contemporary buildings that people want to live in. Advice is offered on the likely success of your project. We also provide a realistic scope of works and projected construction cost.

Listed buildings: 

We have experience of listed residential and commercial buildings in London and Canterbury. The design process is carefully planned to minimise unforeseen damage to our heritage.

Conservation areas: 

We have considerable expertise in working with buildings in conservation areas in Greater London. Understanding the regulations in relation to this type of architecture is an essential part of our service.


A great deal of attention is given to each project to retain its original character whilst introducing contemporary new designs. The availability of daylight is carefully considered so we can reduce energy use.


We focus on converting buildings intelligently and economically and to make full use of the existing space.


We design extensions to ‘work’ with the original building. These may be in keeping with existing style or offer a more contemporary approach that enhances the building without looking out of place.


Architectural Drawings - Following a site visit, we interpret your brief and offer the best solutions. We listen carefully to your priorities, and design concepts that are exciting, achievable and cost-effective. Here we can develop initial ideas into great blueprints and ultimately, great builds.

  • Building Surveys: 

We advise on the condition of the building and nature of the work required. This can be at pre-purchase stage.

  • Design & Planning Application: 

We provide a realistic and economical architectural solution for each individual project with a detailed time-frame and construction budget.

  • Building regulation applications: 

Details are considered carefully to comply with statutory requirements as well as providing low energy building solutions. 

  • Interior design: 

Detail design makes a huge difference to the look of property and does increase the value of the project. A creative, stylish design solution is developed that’s appropriate for each project to improve the overall aesthetic.

  • Project Management: 

We offer and deliver a project management service. Stage by stage detailed programmes and details are submitted weekly. The aim of this process is to reduce the construction cost and minimise unforeseen issues on site. We believe that this process reduces total construction cost.

  • Party Wall Agreement: 

We offer a Party Wall Agreement service where we can produce a Party Wall Notice, act as a Surveyor as well as produce a Party Wall Award if required.
