Dynamic architecture and design studio based in South East London, creating practical and coherent spaces with the power to delight///

Selencky///Parsons projects are identified by their clear narrative, and are deeply rooted in their context. We have no preconceived ideas about what a building should be and try to approach each project without ego. For us, the client and the context are the biggest drivers in any project. We work collaboratively, both within the office - where we actively encourage everyone to contribute - and with our clients and consultants.  Strong concepts are at the heart of our process, and rigorous detailing ensures the ultimate success of our buildings. We enjoy the close client relationships that residential work brings, whilst also relishing the challenges of larger scale projects in other sectors. Selencky///Parsons were nominated for the prestigious Young Architect of the Year Award in 2017 and have won and been shortlisted for many other awards throughout the practice’s history.
