‘Will it add value?’ The question most likely to keep developers awake at night!

For contemporary new-build developments that require high-end detailing and smart ‘on-the-money’ commercial thinking.

Somorjay & Tallis architects based in Barnes, SW London, work with developers on project builds up to the value of £5m.

Property designs that will stand the test of time

Our niche is in developing characteristic properties that will function in a smart, sustainable way

Design ideas that will stand the test of time – for how a property will look now, and five, ten, fifty years into the future.

With an accredited Conservation architect in our team, we can seamlessly merge traditional with contemporary to exemplary effect

High-end detailing and superior quality finish are our typical trademarks

We understand construction. We are experienced in the property development business. Initial discussions will work out your market with you.

This results in a hands-on, no-nonsense commercial approach, that will produce head-turning, profitable designs, that will appeal to the people you want to buy.

Time is money. Sharp problem solving skills developed through many years experience lets us identify potential problems and how they can be addressed – early on.

Our solid technical ability will integrate all the essential functional and structural elements into drawings that are easy to follow.

How we work with you

      • Our measured approach and attention to detail means that we are good at getting planning applications through with the minimum of delay
      • Commercially aware, we ensure the ‘Big Idea’ is profitably feasible

They listened intently, guided and directed us every step of the way. We've previously worked with heavy hitter practices who we did not want for this project as we needed a more personalised approach with attention to detail. Somorjay & Talliss led the way and knew our market - they got it pretty spot on. The colours, the materials - the end result was a very high quality, high end housing scheme.
