SOPHIE BATES ARCHITECTS designs high quality, contemporary architecture and interiors.

We aim to achieve many things but paramount to our work is that each project is specific to you, developing the design concepts from your brief – both your practical needs and interpreting your own inspirations – to make intelligent architecture that is personal to you.

Inventive use and careful selection of building materials juxtaposed with qualities of light are central to our approach. How the new spaces flow and relate to the outside world are also pivotal in the design process.

Sophie's background is in sculpture and photography and this cross-disciplinary approach to design allows us to create strong narratives in our theoretical and built projects. A successful space needs to work not only spatially but in the small, crafted details that make it easy and inspiring to use. We are committed to designing high quality, well considered architecture across and range of budgets and requirements.


Sophie has transformed my dark London kitchen into a beautiful, light, family hub. The design is thoughtful, mixing old with new to wonderful effect. Sophie has been reliable and professional throughout with a keen eye for detail, an absolute pleasure to work with.
