Our story

ARCHEA was set up in Spring 2010 by Richard Skinner and Mai-ling Leung. Our principal focus is with existing residential accommodation, and through close analysis of our own domestic requirements, together with those of our peers and clients, aim to improve existing domestic landscapes. We aim to empower our clients through careful design based on spatial, programmatic, economic, environmental and social considerations. We aim to protect and enhance the character inherent in so many of the buildings with which we work, whilst also creating new spaces that anticipate and support new programmes and relationships within. We also promote and coordinate performance upgrades to the associated building fabric and services, in order that we can meet wider social and environmental demands.

Whilst every job is unique, we also understand the inherent advantages of standardisation and have formulated a number of design approaches and specifications that are directly transferable from one project to the next. This level of standardisation enables us to offer high quality design to a broader client base as it helps maintain economic efficiency in terms of both fees and construction costs.

In parallel to providing architectural services, ARCHEA also develop private projects. We find this to be an incredible opportunity to test our ideas together with new techniques and materials. At the same time we aim to set precedent for the economic viability of small scale architectural interventions where otherwise they may be conceived as uneconomically viable. Our experience in running our own private developments also positions us well when identifying the needs and concerns of domestic clients.

Ultimately we aim to provide an Architecture of inclusivity, offering high quality bespoke design solutions that have efficiency at their heart, enabling us to reach a much broader client base than is typical with contemporary domestic architecture.

Architects & Designers Project range: £50,000 - £500,000

Project: Lansdowne Road, London E17



London E17

The original property was a late Victorian 3 bedroom mid terrace house, which we previously worked with the client on, to convert the attic to add 2 bedrooms, whilst converting the original 3rd bedroom into a generous family bath and laundry room.

The 2nd phase of the project was to add a large wraparound side & rear extension to create a much more generous open plan kitchen and dining space, with much better visual and physical connection with the garden.
