Exploring the art of the possible
UCHI Architecture is an RIBA Chartered Practice based in Harpenden, Hertfordshire.
We design houses and interiors for discerning clients with interesting requirements.
UCHI Architecture was established in 2010 to meet the need for RIBA industry standard architectural design within a growing domestic market. Since then we have had the privilege of working with over 300 clients across Hertfordshire.
We provide a full range of architectural services from inception to handover and we are passionate about creating and improving your home.
UCHI Architecture does not have a ‘house style’ instead we believe that good architecture is a language and should be right for your requirements as the client and for your particular home and its context.
One of our unique selling points is that we undertake all projects in a full-size 3d CAD model using cutting-edge hardware and software. This informs all of our design process but also enables you the client (as well as planning officers and builders) to see the proposals in 3D. This includes kitchens, and furniture, as well as geo-located sun-path analysis.
UCHI provides a great service and exquisite designs. They really made us think about how we could best live in our house, use the space and what we would like the house to look and feel like. They provided beautiful designs and ideas. In addition they provided design advice for the interiors and have continued to provide help and support after the project finished. We highly recommend Paul and his team at Uchi. The plans for our extension are wonderfully responsive to our needs. Paul is design-led (but in a very practical way!) He has been quick to act on any changes and fine-tuning we required. He provided a thorough set of plans; greatly appreciated by us and also the builders who quoted. He has been particularly understanding of the needs and stresses of family life in arranging meetings and making adjustments to the designs.
