Studio AVC
Studio AVC is an architecture and interior design firm which offers a tailored approach to help deliver exciting and innovative designs. We like working on private houses and commercial projects like offices, restaurants and shops as well as bigger developments.


We provide architectural design services from concept to completion. Our area of expertise definitely lies in new build homes, multi-unit apartment schemes, extensions and property remodelling – inside and out. We have a wide experience of working with local planning authorities to obtain planning approvals, conservation area and listed building consents and the technical requirements for building control. Our private residential projects include new builds, house extensions, basements and loft conversions as well as changes of use at all scales.


We consider ourselves to be imaginative and we push standards to be conceptual and creative. As a small business, Studio AVC’s strength is in nurturing creativity and personal service, consistent with an ethos that “small is beautiful.”


Since 2013 we have been creating original spaces that are interesting, comfortable and deeply personal and share our experience through interior design classes at our office as well as serving on design review panels for Merton Council and Wandsworth Council.

From full-scale projects to small renovations, we are here to help you to design the space you’ve always wished you could live or work in. We believe that every space has the potential to become unique, harmonious and beautiful. We are proud of what we do and would very pleased to share our experience with you. 

Interior design courses and workshops
We have a series of two-hour classes coming soon, more details here. We also run flexible classes which allow customers and corporate groups can get in touch with us to arrange private sessions (requires minimum of four people).

Office space/desk rent
We are looking for people to share our office space. It is larger than we need and we would like to rent out a couple of desks. The space would ideally suit designers, architects, engineers or people interested in design, so that we share ideas, work, our library etc. However anyone who is bored of coworking spaces, cafes or working at home is very welcome. 

The office is located on the heritage site by River Wandle which is famous for its art and crafts market and its history with William Morris. It is in a listed building, The 1929 Shop, and only 10 minutes walk from Collier Wood tube station. We have large windows looking toward the river, a meeting table, kitchenette and generous space with large desks.
