Our Philosophy

Studio AVC is guided by a belief in design excellence. Our architectural approach draws from the physical and spiritual needs of people, an understanding of the physical context and a sensitivity to the culture and distinctiveness of place. We believe that the best architecture is a result of creativity, consistency, sustainability and efficiency.

With an awareness of context, our architectural ideas are formed by an understanding of functional constraints and a desire to engage people. We believe that in their purest form buildings are supported by a structure, incorporate services which allow them to function, integrate sustainably with the local environment and provide a quality of natural light that lifts the spirits. Our motivation is the harmony of these diverse elements to produce consistently high quality architecture.

We consider ourselves to be imaginative and we push standards to be conceptual and creative. As a small business, Studio AVC’s strength is in nurturing creativity and personal service, consistent with an ethos that “small is beautiful”.

Our current projects include many residential and office extensions and refurbishments in the UK as well as architectural and interior design consultancy for cultural facilities such as the Colour House Theatre in London.

The practice is based at Merton Abbey Mills in London and led by Ayca Vural-Cutts
