LUCA is a practice of architecture and interior design. The studio likes to create places that perform exceptionally and enrich people’s lives in a meaningful way. On residential projects, LUCA’s approach is led by identifying intricacies of the local site, environment and urban fabric together with a client’s desires and requirements. They then use architecture and interior design as means to develop a spatial response to this, which combines practical solutions with enabling and enriching experiences.
LUCA works on projects regionally, nationally or internationally, and can help you from the initial design stages all the way to project completion. Their breadth of experience and expertise makes them the perfect choice for your project, no matter how big or small.
LUCA as a company name reminds of spatial qualities to being Light, Universal, Connecting and Adaptive.
LUCA was founded in 2013 by two chartered senior architects, Alex Schramm and Shin Yu. Alex Schramm is a senior architect with over 15 years of experience across Europe and Asia. His approach to architecture is holistic in nature, with a particular interest in environmental design. Co-founder Shin Yu has experience working with large developers and stakeholder groups on major projects. Her particular focus when it comes to architecture is on ecology.
LUCA offers initial calls free of charge to discuss your needs. As senior architects and fully qualified professionals, they take pride in supporting you in your decision making and offering a transparent service.
If you like to take the next step and consider working with LUCA, then for domestic clients they offer affordable design visits for a fixed fee. Here they explore design options together and you will receive inspiring sketch plans of your project.
The team at LUCA is always keen to work with ecological materials, so if you like to reduce VOCs, petrochemicals and your carbon footprint, then they can specify a range of beautiful materials that will aid a more healthy climate inside. If you like to minimise your energy use and cost, they can work with you to Passive House Standards or Enerphit for refurbishments.
