Benchmark Architects is an architecture and design studio based in London, Milton Keynes and Ampthill.

We are a passionate and personable team, alive with creative and commercial design solutions. We love architecture and design. We enjoy working with people on projects to create, challenge and innovate. We are specialists in residential development, bespoke homes, hospitality projects and crematoria buildings.

This means homes, apartments, hotels, students, prs development, restaurants, bars, spas, crematoriums and mausoleums. We love designing and developing new-build “clean canvas” building projects, and we also love rethinking, remodeling and refurbishing listed, heritage buildings and the unloved “ugly-monsters”.

Our team apply creative and technical design solutions to every project.
