23 Architecture + Guy Stansfeld Architects / 318 Studio

23 + GS / 318 is an architecture and interior design studio formed as a union between two successful architectural practices – 23 Architecture and Guy Stansfeld Architects.  The two practices were established by Stuart Robertson and Guy Stansfeld respectively and have been collaborating closely since deciding to pool resources in 1997.

We offer our clients a comprehensive bespoke service that is highly professional, friendly and discreet.  Our team of architects and designers are talented, highly qualified and able to draw on a vast body of collective experience.

The work that we create is both beautiful and practical, absorbing the personalities and interests of our clients whilst at the same time reflecting our own preoccupation with light, space, materiality and, of course, functionality.

We believe passionately in the need for a more sustainable built environment and encourage our clients to take full advantage of the latest developments in technology and product design.

Please contact us if you would like to learn more about what 23 + GS / 318 can do for you or to set up an appointment with one of our directors.
