Their level of service? Above and beyond

They listen and ask the right questions and take the right notes. You don’t feel misrepresented later, like, did I really say that?!
— (Stella Grice, EFG Bank)

Our aim on all projects is to align our clients’ brands and businesses with environments crafted around real people’s wants and needs, balancing brand expression with end-user ergonomics.

We have found align super user-friendly and importantly they ask the correct questions at the outset to ensure delivery is a smooth process. They understand fully tenant requirements and are able to suggest innovative ideas to bring space plans to fruition

We work with clients from a wide spectrum of sectors - including music, media, finance, technology, charity and the public sector - and we believe this cross-fertilisation of influences and experience keeps our studio and our growing international team fresh, open and creative.

In 2015, align was named ‘Best Small Design Studio’ at the London Design Awards, underlining all the advantages of being a tight team, from the bespoke creativity of our design solutions to the properly personal relationships we create with clients. In 2016, the company won the ‘Best in Workplace Interior Design’ award at the Corporate Livewire Architecture Awards and in 2017, align was named ‘One to Watch’ by FX Magazine, shortlisted as ‘Design Practice of the Year’ at the Mixology Awards and won an ‘Excellence in Design Services Award’ at the Corporate LiveWire Architecture Awards 2017. Our project work has additionally been nominated for a MIX Award, won both Gold and Silver at the London Design Awards and given the Annual Office Space Award at the Modern Decoration International Media Awards.

Their passion is oozing. They do the job as if it’s their own office, with a real sense of ownership
