About

Simon Gill Architects is an internationally published practice established in 1997. Since then we have completed many projects including residential, commercial, retail, ecclesiastical and also gardens. We aspire to creating thoughtful, bespoke buildings that provide convenience and delight whilst responding well to their context. We listen carefully to our clients to ascertain their needs and budget and then set out to surpass their expectations – to create a bespoke building which will fit their requirements exactly.

We offer a full range of services from an initial feasibility study, planning consent applications, construction packages, tendering, through to contract administration of the building work. We are experienced in the design of basements and also take great pleasure in designing gardens which we believe should relate intimately to their adjacent houses.

What our clients say

A passionate and accomplished architect who created a functional yet innovative solution when I needed to extend my home. The completed project was so well-designed that it was even shortlisted for the prestigious Architect’s Journal small projects award and RIBA Award too.

Ben Perl

After speaking to various architects, we appointed Simon Gill to carry out an extensive remodelling of our house in Fulham. Simon came up with a wonderfully imaginative design centred around huge sliding glass doors spanning the full width of the garden.

Simon was enormously patient with us, spending hours understanding how we and our four children would use the space. He then project-managed the build to ensure that the contractors didn’t cut corners and delivered his very high quality specification. The project was finished on time and on budget and we are delighted with it. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Robert and Harriet Inglis

Simon has been our Architect for the design and management for two major projects. He’s fabulous – a joy to work with; innovative, fun, charming and creative but diligent, practical, budget-conscious and detail orientated. From feasibility study to planning, and from tender to construction, Simon was totally on top of the process; guiding throughout whilst being collaborative; happy to take on-board my ideas and develop them to produce a finished project that works in both form and function.

Alice Gambhir

SGA was found through a personal recommendation. Our involvement with SGA covered every aspect of this job; full design, planning, production of a short list of main contractors, assisting with the selection of one and full management of the entire job which was the complete modernisation of a terraced house plus the addition of a full width and length basement.

This job was completed below budget and more than two months early, something which was a new experience for me! SGA continued to be interested in the property after the handover, which is a very good indicator of their professionalism I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Mike and Anne Allen

Simon is one amazing architect. I have never come across anyone with such wonderful attention to detail and enthusiasm for a project. His eye for detail is fantastic and he has some superb creative ideas. He will listen to you and ensure that you achieve exactly what you want (not necessarily what he wants). He always makes you feel as though you are the only client. Never rushed and ensures you have his full care and attention. He is completely focused on the builders and will ensure they aren’t making mistakes. I have been so impressed with Simon and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
