Founded in 2016, the South London-based Oliver Leech Architects has grown an impressive, award-winning portfolio of contemporary new-build homes, extensions, interiors and basements. A Chartered British Architect, Oliver graduated from the Bartlett School of Architecture and worked at a handful of highly acclaimed practices, before founding his own studio.
An experienced team of four form the core of the practice, but Oliver Leech Architects also work closely with experienced carpenters in order to deliver joinery and bespoke furniture design. A personal service is paramount to the practice, and so Oliver is involved in the design of every one of their projects.
The considered remodeling of a Victorian terraced house in Vestry Road, London, saw the design practice scoop ‘Compact Design Of the Year’ at the 2020 Don’t Move Improve Awards. While the internal renovation of Hipped House in Epsom, Surrey, made the shortlist and the final list for both the Dezeen and British Home Awards respectively, in 2021.
