//about

Claire Scorpo Architects is an award-winning practice, established in 2014.

Our residential portfolio spans bespoke interior modifications to large-scale builds, including the Thornbury House, which won the 2015 Architeam Award for Residential Alterations.
We have a number of commercial projects in progress, due for completion later this year.
//practice

We are a collaborative studio that designs buildings which will not only accommodate occupants, but enhance their lives.

We place strong emphasis on simplicity and efficiency, and look for ways to connect individual projects with their site and context. We design to capture natural light, accommodate change and flexibility in occupants lives, and integrate with the landscape.
