PAULO ESPIRITO SANTO
BA(Hons)Arch DipArch PgDipPPArch ARB RIBA
My name is Paulo and l am the founder of Espirito Santo Architecture. I have a strong emphasis on offering a personal service to my private clients. I take great pride in interpreting my client’s aspirations and exceed their expectations with my creative design flair, to suit their budget. For me the most important thing is to develop a relationship where you enjoy the process of creating your dream home and enjoy this experience. Keeping my practice small allows me to work personally with each and every client. I take great pride in every detail of my work and l manage the entire design and project management process from concept to completion.
I studied Architecture at University of Westminster and South Bank University between 1997 to 2001 completed my professional education in 2008. I am a registered RIBA and ARB Architect since 2008 and became a RIBA registered Chartered Practice in 2019.
Prior to setting up my own Architectural Practice, I worked at PTP Architects in Holland Park between 2004 to 2008 and as an Associate between 2008 to 2016, Marston & Langinger between 2002 – 2004 and Edward Hill Partnership Architects between 1997 – 1998.
I have a vast experience of Heritage and Conservation matters and have successfully completed over 25 projects, predominantly in Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and City of Westminster ranging from £350,000 to £12 Million.
My ‘High End Residential’ background is mainly on Grade II Listed and Conservation Areas, focussing on Prime Central London Homes with large iceburg homes.
More recently, I have developed an interest in Rooftop developments, adding additional storeys to existing buildings.

The property was in a very poor state of repair, showing signs of decoration neglect and structural defects. It had been split into three small self-contained flats.
