Hi, we're Evolve
A small but well-established architectural practice based in West London, founded in 2010. We collaborate as a studio from initial client meeting through to construction on site to carry out well considered design. We offer a bespoke design service for our clients to inspire solutions that enhance and transform what they have into something that gives them joy beyond function.
Our approach to every project is to seek intelligent, beautiful solutions to delight our clients while adding value to their buildings. We work closely with clients, crafting spaces that feel personal and reflective of who will live there. The practice is fortunate to have a loyal client base who come back with new projects and refer their friends and family. We were selected to be on a Framework with Ealing Council for small projects. Our entry for the Bethany Waye Design Competition demonstrates our interest to build new relationships with new clients.
We offer the full architectural services from conception to completion.
Establish the brief of the project both the physical built needs and defining the heart of the project.
Sketch design with drawings and models options and ideas to be refined to preference and budget.
Produce and manage the planning applications and construction drawings, while leading the design team members of engineers etc.
During construction when the detailed design is handed over to the hands of the contractor a new wave of design decisions and matters are resolved by us on site in our work boots. We offer a hands-on approach to contract administration and site work.
Interior Architecture is a large part of every project that includes the materials selected, the built-in joinery and the lighting. We work with many skilled craftsmen on projects who produce those finishing touches that complete an interior.
Hard landscape design has become another skill of the practice as the inside and outside meld together in projects the landscape needs to be considered as an extension of the building.
Natalie Sully DipArch
Founder and Director
Natalie began her career in Europe working at the Paris atelier of Pritzer Prize winning architect Christian de Portzamparc. That time in Paris crafting hand drawn perspectives, making endless scale models, clay prototypes of door furniture etc. was a grounding experience in design and detail. After raising a family in west London she returned to the profession working in a local practice and then completing Part 3 at South Bank University. When the opportunity came to build her first new build house EvolveArchitecture was started.
Aliki qualified as an architect in 1999 from the Bartlett. Previous to this she completed Parts I and II at Liverpool University and Oxford Brookes respectively.
Amongst a varied portfolio, Aliki's experience encompasses a wide spectrum of work in the commercial and residential sectors. Such projects include the £250m Merrill Lynch Headquarters, the £100m 80 Gresham Street to an extensive refurbishment of the Savoy Hotel and the refurbishment of 50 HSBC banks. Her most recent experience, for the past 5 years, has focused on many residential extensions in which Aliki takes a very client-orientated hands-on approach.
Aside from her busy work life, Aliki is a proactive mother, enthusiastic tennis and squash player, a keen gardener and enjoys restoring her large Victorian house.
Johnny completed his Professional Diploma at London Metropolitan University where his design thesis explored an urban-scale proposal for London in which spaces for industry and housing are in close proximity. The project was awarded Distinction and shortlisted for the Presidents Medals Silver Award.
Having worked on larger scale housing schemes for Witherford Watson Mann, Florian Beigel and O’Donnell + Tuomey, Johnny joined Evolvearchitecture in 2018 with an interest in projects on small sites in and around the London Borough of Hounslow where he grew up. Johnny also has a degree in Archaeology from the University of Cambridge.
