Paul Davidson

Paul is a fully qualified RIBA chartered architect with over 25 years professional experience. Paul has three academic qualifications and studied under the personal tutelage of architectural historian Professor James Stevens Curl, specialising in the Classical Language of Architecture. His early career involved master planning for major projects including much of what can be seen around Paddington in London.

Paul has been an undergraduate design tutor and postgraduate lecturer as well as a professional external examiner for RIBA.

Following, Paul spent the next 5 years as a project architect and project manager delivering high end domestic projects in London before launching UCHI Architecture in 2010. The concept of UCHI Architecture is to bring experienced fully qualified RIBA architecture to home projects at all scales.




Chloe B

Chloe studied Architectural Technology at The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture, Robert Gordon University, graduating in 2009.

She has worked for UCHI since the very beginning when operations ran from the dining room table and is the backbone and the technical brains of the UCHI operation.

Chloe runs mainly on coffee and has encyclopaedic knowledge of building regs.


When Chloe isn’t working (which is most of the time) she loves to spend time with family and friends, eating and cooking amazing food. She is also a cat whisperer.



Felicity Sutton


Having graduated from UCL with a BA (Hons) degree in History of Art (and also two years as President of the UCL Music Society) Felicity continued her interest in design and architecture by studying at The London Design School and at KLC.


Once out in the world of work Felicity spent the first eight years of her career as an interior designer in London for Design and Build companies. The projects varied from small businesses to large scale office buildings; from devising secret rooms for the Ministry of Defence to designing a music recording studio (which received high praise from Julie Andrews!)


The design world had to take a back seat for a few years whilst Felicity juggled the demands of her two small children, though she did manage to combine this with working for Harpenden Town Council running the Harpenden’s Farmers Market and large-scale events such as the Silver Jubilee celebrations on Harpenden Common.


Since 2015 Felicity has returned to her first love, the world of design and architecture, taking on a role with UCHI alongside some freelance interior design projects, her most notable being the design of a fencing salle in St Albans. It is the creativity in this line of work which appeals mostly to Felicity and taking particular care to make sure that the buildings match her client’s brief as closely as possible, from the look of the exterior, to how the interiors flow, feel and function.


Outside work Felicity enjoys a busy family life with her Classical musician husband, two teenage daughters and a black Labrador named Phoebe. When not at her desk she is happiest playing her cello in local amateur orchestras, painting, exploring buildings, gardening, or quite simply on long muddy walks invariably wearing wellies.




Emma Webster


With almost 20 years’ experience gained in a London architectural practice, Emma joined Uchi in 2018. Whilst in London she had overseen mixed use schemes and high end residential projects in both private and public sectors including new builds, refurbishments and conversion of listed buildings.


Her early projects included the refurbishment of the Grade II*- listed Denys Lausden Building and a new build double height basement in the centre of London for high end clients. This led to providing clients with a full understanding of the development potentials and planning issues that projects require. Emma has collaborated with both English Heritage and The Twentieth Century Society for clients on complex projects, taking them through the planning process to delivery.


Since joining Uchi, Emma has been engaged in many residential projects from large scale refurbishments to a new build development. All these projects have involved complex solutions and designs in sensitive urban locations.


Emma has brought a sensitive approach and holistic view from project concept to completion. She thrives on the conceptual stages of projects with a wide knowledge of materials and finishes. Her understanding of clients’ aspirations and overseeing designs and high quality detailing has brought together successful and deliverable schemes.


Having a keen interest in modern design and future sustainable innovation, she believes in paying attention to detail and collaborative working as being the key to ensuring a successful and enjoyable project experience for all.


Outside of work, life is full of noise and chaos with two young children. A treat now would be reading a magazine from cover to cover on the sofa in silence! I enjoy escaping to Suffolk with my family for walks on the coast with an ice cream and the sun!




Sally Davidson

Sally has been working in the creative industries for over 30 years.


 She graduated with a degree in Graphic Design from Bath Art college but spent the first decade of her career working in fashion; making and designing her own collections. This included running a children’s wear brand for over 5 years, where she was involved in all aspects of design, manufacture, branding, graphics and digital.


For the last 15 years Sally has been self employed as a graphic designer working across a large spectrum of disciplines, including brand identity, layout and print, packaging, digital, and exhibition design. 


Sally is married to Paul and since the launch of UCHI architecture, as well as creating the logo, brand collateral and website, she has also supported the company by taking on the role of practise manager, looking after all things non-architectural and non-technical. 


Sally and Paul have 2 grown up daughters, who are themselves involved in the creative industries.  


Sally loves sunshine, reading, walking, gardening, Darjeeling tea, the smell of pine forests in summer and good candles.





Percy is our office disruptor and is involved mainly in demolition and mayhem. He is very successful in his role of movement invigilator, as he makes sure we stand up a lot. He likes raw bones, balls, chasing pigeons, rampaging and being awake.
