About

Working from our Greenwich based office, Studio Blue Architects offer a range of architectural and interior design services to suit our clients’ requirements. Each project is co-ordinated from inception to completion by the two principal Architects and founding company directors Philip Duckworth and Elisa Skondra who share a combined 20 years’ experience of professional architectural practice.

Philip Duckworth is a UK registered (ARB) and chartered (RIBA) Architect and has worked in several high profile architectural practices in London and Athens after graduating from the University of Huddersfield and Edinburgh College of Art. Philip has a wide range of design and construction experience in the residential,commercial, education and transport sectors. Building good working relationships with clients, consultants and contractors for over eight years has consistently helped Philip to exceed client expectations with innovative designs and smooth project procurement.

«We each have an emotional investment in the spaces we inhabit. By developing good working relationships throughout the entire design process, a clear understanding of each client’s unique requirements will naturally steer the design towards spaces tailored around the opportunities of the site and the lifestyle & aspirations of the client. »

«I am passionate about people and believe in personalised surroundings. A well designed space can contribute and influence the user’s psychology. We are influenced by the slightest sunbeams, the colours, the feel of materials and textures that surround us, consciously or subconsciously. We are here for the experience, let’s make it unique!»
