An account from the Octagon Architects


Octagon Architects is home to some of the most talented and experienced architects and designers in the residential sector.  Offering a comprehensive service and taking a bespoke approach to every project, the team supports with the preparation of initial briefs and production of concept designs, through to construction working drawing packages and project management services during the build process. Working collaboratively with Octagon’s breadth of in-house consultants, with an uncompromising focus on each client’s requirements, Octagon Architects achieve the very best in house design, navigating the architectural pillars of form, light, space and material.

Alasdair Galloway, a recent addition to the Octagon Architects team, is already marvelling at the diverse range projects he is getting involved in, from a sizable development of family homes and affordable apartments for the company’s new mid-market brand, Chancery Homes, to a ground-breaking contemporary design for a new super mansion where the spotlight is firmly on fitness. Planned facilities include a copper-lined saltwater swimming pool, tennis and squash courts, and wellness facilities rivalling those enjoyed at the finest European thermal spas.


“Having worked in the luxury sector for a number of years, I have always been a great admirer of Octagon. Well-known for their remarkable houses that are peppered throughout London and the home counties, it is equally impressive to discover they deliver successfully for other price groups, the common denominator being the clients are all aspirational buyers seeking a quality home within their particular budget.”

Upcoming sites include a riverside home designed for multi-generational living; grandparents will be regular visitors requiring ground floor accommodation, the younger family members need a serious work-out room, which has been designated to the basement, leaving an ample two further floors of airy space for living and sleeping. Veering back into London, Octagon have also been invited to extend an elegant Victorian terraced house near the legendry Hurlingham Club.  The extension will add an extra floor to give much needed living space, without ruffling the neighbours’ feathers with an oversized appendage to mar their street’s period architecture.

Concludes Alasdair,

“The range and scale of projects we have the privilege of creating for both Octagon Group and individual Octagon Bespoke clients makes for a stimulating, often challenging, but always enjoyable day in the architects’ office.”
