Studio Seventi is an architectural practice formed in 2005. We offer a full design and construction advice service to householders, developers and builders. The mainstay of the practice’s work is residential refurbishments, alterations and extensions.
The best way to describe our approach to projects is ‘pragmatic’ rather than dogmatic. We are modernist by inclination, but recognise that London – where the bulk of our work is – has a fantastically rich architectural heritage, and one that is widely loved and protected. In such situations it is sometimes necessary to have a more contextual approach. As such, the power of our work can lie in the contrast of juxtaposition; equally in contextual harmonising.
Godson Egbo BA (Hons) Architecture, DipArch (Diploma in Architecture) RIBA & ARB registered
Having worked in the field of architecture since 1986, Godson obtained his degree in architecture from Portsmouth Polytechnic in 1989 and his Diploma in Architecture from the University of Portsmouth in 1992, following an exchange to Universite de Nantes, Ecole D’Architecture in 1990. He became fully qualified in 1998, having worked in several practices throughout the 90s. Godson credits Gaunt Francis Architects in Mayfair as really developing him as an architect when he started there on a 6 week contract to help with some plasterboard details – and ended up three years later as a project architect on a British Council project in Cairo.
A fan of art, Godson would have loved to have been a painter if he hadn’t become an architect. He sees architecture as the king of the arts because of the way it has the potential to marry disciplines ranging from pure art, social issues, and technology through to the law and a variety of other considerations for the purpose of producing physical objects that are seen and potentially used by thousands and thousands of people.
When he isn’t working, Godson continues to paint as a hobby. In his spare time, he also plays bass guitar in a modern rhythm combo.
Adrian Coelho BA (Hons) Architecture, MArch (Masters in Architecture)
After achieving his degree in architecture from London South Bank University, Adrian went on to complete his masters at the Manchester School of Architecture. With a love for designing and making, practicing architecture has allowed Adrian to indulge in this passion, while drawing on history, politics, society, geography and life as it is lived.
Adrian previously spent some time working in town planning and as a building services contractor, which has led to his extremely well rounded experience as an architect. He cites his proudest work achievement as the time he spent in China working for Valode & Pistre on architecture and urban planning projects in a country undergoing rapid development.
When Adrian isn’t working, he loves to live an active lifestyle through travel, or walking and riding his bike out in the sticks.
