Northacre Architectural Services was established by Klas Nilsson in 1975 as part of the Northacre Group and has developed a reputation for sympathetically restoring traditional buildings and converting them to prime residential developments.
We embrace the qualities that these traditional buildings bring with their imposing facades, large windows and generously proportioned rooms, high ceilings and intricate detailing - qualities not found in modern developments. Having learned the importance of these qualities in traditional buildings, we aim to incorporate them into all our projects, whether they be new-build or works to listed buildings.
We celebrate the contrast between old and new, the ability to integrate modern comforts into the traditional context in such a way as not to compete with the architecture. We take great pride in creating architecture that is understated, measured and considered.
We received our first award in 1995 for the restoration of Observatory Gardens, following this the practice's achievements have been recognised further with numerous awards for its buildings and contribution to architecture.
Our success has been responsible for the 'revival' and creation of some of the most acclaimed residential developments to have evolved in London over the past two decades. Today over one million square feet of new build and redeveloped listed buildings bear the Northacre brand's distinctive signature.
