AAVA Architects are a client focused and design led architecture and interiors company, committed to creating sustainable spaces and places that exceed client expectations. AAVA Architects was founded in 2007 and the studio is led by Oliver Jackson and Alistair Reid. In that time we have collaborated with clients to realize their architectural ambitions and continue to provide a tailored architectural service in the residential and commercial sectors.

We pride ourselves on excellent relationships with clients and work closely with our network of design team professionals and consultants to ensure the process of realizing your project is as enjoyable as it is rewarding. We oversee projects from inception to completion including the appointment of skilled contractors required to deliver the highest quality of workmanship for our clients.


We have a wealth of experience in gaining planning permissions for projects on challenging sites, often in or adjacent to Listed Buildings, World Heritage Sites and Conservation Areas, allowing us to work alongside our clients to deliver projects which respond to both site constraints and client requirements, creating homes that are truly bespoke.


We work with developers from feasibility through to completion to assist in unlocking the maximum GDV for complex sites.


We have carried out numerous retail fit-outs for clients including Hugo Boss, Thomas Pink and L’Artisan Perumar as well as art gallery commissions at Huxley-Parlour Photography.
