Enclosure Architects specialize in designing exceptional bespoke houses and transforming period properties into contemporary new homes. We are based in Deptford, South East London and were established in 2001. Most of our work is in and around London though we have undertaken commissions in France, Norway and Portugal.

Our work takes two routes; architectural competitions, where the particular rigour of the competition brief, site and program provide the basis for new investigations and, commissioned design projects which apply this research to the practicalities of the built solution.

Each of our projects originates from a thorough analysis of the context of the site and the requirements of the client brief. This study leads to a powerful core idea that drives the evolution of the design. Unity and coherence are maintained through the development of an ongoing series of dialogues between the different spaces and surfaces of the project - in every detail one can see the whole. Our projects frequently involve tight budgetary constraints and, while this may not be apparent from the results we achieve, this is often a core principle in the development of the idea.

Our work has been widely published, both in the UK and abroad, and director Mark Dyson provides regular advice on residential design for Grand Designs magazine and Living Etc.
