Studio Arkay is a research led architectural design practice. Our approach is deeply routed in collaboration & focusses on providing value to clients, as well as the wider community.
We focus on establishing thorough strategic visions, at early stages of projects - with equally high attention to detail during their delivery.
Our projects have a common underlying ethos - an ambition to create joy & comfort within the built environment. Sustainability is an integral part of our considerations, appreciating that our designs impact the well-being of our world and indeed its future inhabitants.
We do not have a 'signature style', instead, the unique requirements of each project help us sculpt a customized design solution.
