Our reputation and success is built around an exceptionally talented, go-getting and innovative team who understand that outstanding architecture is determined by client collaboration, creative design, environmental awareness and building innovation.

Viewing architecture as a service, not a product, we strive to design beautiful, textured, warm balanced spaces, sensitively reacting to client requirements and constraints.

We design from Inside To Outside (ITO). We analyse human behaviour and treat it as an engine of architectural and place-making design. For clients space is the system and interface. They are not concerned with the type of architectural discipline used on a project, their focus is that it looks and works well.

Our process creates and facilitates built environments that enhance quality of life and people interactions and which support a healthy active lifestyle, having a profound, positive effect on individual users and communities. Our collaborative approach focuses on behavioural
psychology and neuro-architecture, both of which inform our intuitive design.

We are part of a circular system in which we shape spaces that in turn shape us. Whether we’re designing offices, housing, mixed-use schemes, producing plans for retail, leisure buildings or developing place-making and urban schemes, our mission remains steadfast – to make people happy!

We have a pleasure of working with ITO Lab Ltd, RIBA Chartered Practice, on the renovation, modernisation and adaptation of the existing industrial unit located 2 - 4 OLD PYE STREET, LONDON SW1 2LE, to housing, which is currently taking place. The building is located in the City of Westminster, St James's Park conservation area. The gross building is approx. 6000 sq. ft, giving approx. construction value £1.5m. Barbara Bochnak and Jan Bochnak who are lead designers and their professional design team have prepared comprehensive documentation, respecting our desired outcome and aligned with current regulations and building standards. ITO Lab compares very favourably with other firms we have had the pleasure of working with on both large and small projects. Barbara, Jan and their staff are commended for their professional and technical skills and services. I would not hesitate to consider them for our future projects. It is with confidence that I recommend ITO Lab RIBA Chartered Practice Sam Mackover Director Grosvenor Square Estates
