At PLANSTUDIO our work is our passion and our clients’ happiness is the best reward for our efforts. We deliver innovative, yet timeless projects that will stand the test of time and age gracefully. We look at every challenge as an opportunity, because challenge inspires creativity.

We are a highly inspired, award-winning RIBA chartered architecture studio, specialising in domestic, residential and mixed-use projects.

A significant part of our projects is located in conservation areas where we have delivered contemporary interventions with support from the local planning authorities.

The studio is led by Peter Lancaric, who has been practicing architecture for over 15 years and has a track record of award winning projects. Before founding PLANSTUDIO, Peter worked as an associate director with a leading architectural practice where he obtained a robust understanding of building structures, acquired vital management skills and developed a keen eye for detail. His legacy projects include Higham Hill Road, Waltham Forest – Best Residential Scheme Award, Waltham Forest Design Awards 2014 and Chobham Manor, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – Mayor’s Prize at New London Architecture Awards 2019.

Peter founded PLANSTUDIO with the desire to work closely with clients as end users and offer ideas perhaps unimaginable for them. Sharing the passion for his work and transforming it into dream homes for clients was his ultimate goal. His background and chartered status, together with his friendly and open manner, give our clients the confidence that they are in good hands.

We very much enjoy working with homeowners to transform their homes and make their dreams become a reality, as well as maximising the development potential for investor clients. Our clients experience a very personable and highly professional service throughout their projects.

 

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY…

“We consider ourselves to have been incredibly lucky to have found Peter. We interviewed 3 architects in relation to our project and Peter was the only one who had creative and compelling ideas for how to deal with the layout issues that we were trying to solve. As well as employing Peter for the architectural design work, we also engaged him to find the required contractors, provide interior design advice, sourcing furniture and project management. The money spent to keep Peter involved for the entirety of our project was definitely money well spent. He was hugely supportive and responsive throughout, including through some issues with the main contractor. Peter was consistently generous with his advice which was particularly helpful in helping us to understand how we should allocate our budget. Thanks to Peter's attention to detail, we are delighted with the end result and particularly with the high quality finish that has been created.”

Bryn

"Peter and his team have been really great in turning a 3-bedroom Victorian house that needed renovation into a 4-bedroom house with a beautifully extended kitchen. The builders also came via him and I can only say that it's all been a big success. Thanks!"

“Great ideas and keen attention to detail - definitely the architect to have in your corner if you're taking on a project of any scale.”
Rob

"Peter designed, and then patiently supported me through the building of, my extension. No question of mine was too foolish and he captured all of my preferences and wishes in the final design which has impressed everyone due to the thoughtful use of space and the amount of light and natural flow the house now has. I would use only him if I had any other needs and feel very comfortable recommending him."

"Peter came up with an excellent design, ably guiding us through the whole process.  He was a calming and patient partner through the build and on a number of occasions spent his weekend doing some last minute design changes.  We're thrilled with the end result!  We have no hesitation in recommending Peter."
