Ungar Architects was founded in 2006 by Peter Ungar and has since built up an impressive portfolio of largely residential projects with confidence and credibility.
The practice prides itself on attention to detail with incisive and critical analysis of sometimes complex design projects. This has been influential in achieving planning approvals and building in highly conservative parts of London and has led to Ungar Architects being a recommended architect by the Hampstead Garden Suburb Trust. As such, the practice has a growing reputation for working creatively and discreetly in areas with tight planning restrictions, on listed buildings and in conservation areas.
Ungar Architects prides itself on coming up with creative solutions in collaboration with our clients, with a sensitive appreciation for timeliness and budget. Our attentiveness has led to numerous referrals from our clients who continue to recommend us.
Relationships and communication are a key aspect of any project and Ungar Architects believes that clear, efficient and open communication channels are of the utmost importance in delivering successful projects. The practice goes above and beyond to ensure that they are available, organised and able to make well-informed decisions quickly for an unimpeded and enjoyable experience for our clients.
Peter Ungar trained at the Architectural Association and Cambridge University. After graduation he worked for Michael Hopkins and Partners on Glyndebourne Opera House and later at Jamie Fobert Architects on a range of schemes including, the extension of the Tate St. Ives, Kettles Yard Gallery, Cambridge and a 15,000 sq ft residence overlooking Port of Spain, Trinidad.
Peter set up Ungar Architects in 2006 with a commission for a small house in Los Angeles, and since then, the practice has completed a range of mainly residential projects in North London, chiefly in Hampstead Garden Suburb, Hampstead and Belsize Park.
Peter’s work and training have brought him to the view that architecture is a team process where mutual respect, fairness and flexibility are key. He believes that the quality of design is of equal importance to attentiveness, clear communication and respect, which has resulted in the practice gaining many new projects through the referrals of their clients.
