Innovation and tradition: London architect PN-Architects

This London architects’ practice focuses on sustainable, practical, and innovative architecture. PN-Architects pay meticulous attention to detail and start each project by fully understanding the client’s needs and aspirations.

RIBA architect and company founder Lorenzo Poggi’s experience includes work on historical and ecclesiastical buildings in Italy and London, high-end residential projects, and listed buildings. Of prime importance are the environment, eco-sustainable architecture, and technical innovations: Lorenzo believes a link between tradition and innovation is always achievable.

Flexible and beautiful design

Lorenzo Poggi commented:

We bring client ideas to life, creating space that can have a positive impact on the people who live in it and on the environment. Our goal is to design spaces that fulfil client’s immediate needs, but also provide enough flexibility to grow and evolve. We believe that architecture has the power to shape the way we experience the world around us.

We approach each project with meticulous attention to detail and a deep understanding of our client’s needs and aspirations. We believe that tradition and innovation can be interconnected to create a living, comfortable and amazing space. Our work is underpinned by ongoing research and development, and we believe that the best architecture reveals its beauty, functionality, and utility over time. It is timeless and expresses the indivisibility of space, structure, and services.

We feature one of this London architect’s designs.

This flat, near London’s Earl’s Court station, is in a historically significant residential block in a conservation area. PN Architects undertook a significant internal restructuring scheme, collaborating closely with a structural engineer due to the need to demolish load-bearing masonry walls.

As both architect and project manager, Lorenzo oversaw every aspect of the project, from the initial survey to the completion of on-site work. The space was redesigned to create an open-plan kitchen with a dining area, incorporating a large opening in the living room wall to maximize daylight. Existing windows were restored, and secondary glazing was installed to enhance insulation and energy efficiency. Internal insulation measures were also implemented to reduce heat loss.

Good design: the layout of the flat.

All finishes were entirely new, and a suspended acoustic flooring system was installed per the building management’s request. Additionally, thermal insulation was integrated into the new floor construction. Given the open plan layout and to comply with building regulations, a recently developed mist water system for fire suppression on the walls was installed. Bespoke joinery solutions were developed through close collaboration with the client and contractors.

The client was delighted with the spacious feel of the finished scheme and the abundance of natural light flooding the flat during the day. Lorenzo added that he is proud of this project, which met the client’s vision within the confines of a limited budget and specific timeline.

What we like about this London architects firm:

PN Architects approach projects by considering how a scheme will look over time. We like the way that they work closely with clients to assess how the space will adapt to their changing needs in the future.
