SAM Architects is a young firm of Architects based in Peckham working across London and Europe. Melanie and Sandi have been working in London since 2000 for various well known Architects such as David Chipperfield, Duggan Morris, Conran & Partners, AHMM and Grimshaw Architects and set up SAM in 2012.

The broad experience of each of the individuals and SAM Architects as a team benefits the projects hugely and give us the opportunity to draw on a lot of knowledge and different experiences.

Our design solutions are uncomplicated, cost-effective, functional and innovative; rigorous research and good craftsmanship underpins our work. Our works ranges from commercial projects to small interior design project and furniture design and large scale developments in the UK and Europe.

We love the really small Project just as much as the really big ones. Every Project brings new challenges and that’s what we love about our work. Our focus is on delivering unique projects that respond to their settings, are environmentally efficient and beautifully executed. We firmly believe that good design adds value.

We work closely with our clients and other consultants to efficiently deliver projects of the highest quality across a broad range of typologies and scales.

We work enthusiastically, creatively and curiously, as we believe that this approach is essential to the development of great design solutions. At the same time, we believe that thorough analysis and a clearly defined approach are integral parts of a successful design.


Each project that we undertake is different. Each client that we work with is different.

We offer full architectural and interior design services. For each project we assemble a dedicated design team that is best suited to the project and utilise the most appropriate design methodology to the project type. Our aim is to provide a design that reflects your requirements and offers an optimal solution for you.

We like to work from inception to completion, staying involved throughout the lifespan of a project which provides an important continuity in thought, design and management. We see this as a way of ensuring the final delivery meets your ambitions, timescales and expectations. We employ a holistic approach, bringing added value to the project while staying within your budget. We work closely with contractors, individual trades and specialists and have a hands on approach to the design and construction.


We charge fees appropriate to the level of service and design that you require. We can work with you to establish the most cost-effective solution to deliver what you need. We are competitive but we also understand that a project requires sufficient resource to be delivered correctly. We offer exceptional quality design for realistic prices.
