London is the global capital of architecture, with the Shard, the Heron Tower and the Cheesegrater all recognisable masterpieces. But away from the lofty high-rises, a company named VORBILD are also transforming the capital on a more residential level. This trendy architecture firm, based in London and in Nice, France, are designing and styling some of the finest houses of this generation - so we couldn’t be more pleased to now call them a Portico Place…
VORBILD Architecture is a RIBA Chartered Practice offering both architectural and interior design services.
Using modern, effective solutions our aim is to improve and optimise your most important space – your home.
“Your home is an extension of you and your life, so when we take on a project we will carefully consider your needs – not only in relation to the property's individual characteristics and history, but also your personal style and who you are,” explains Michael Schienke, Chartered Architect and founder of the practice.
The essence of their approach is to understand from the start of a project what the client desires and how they will be using the space. The result is not just a beautiful space, but also a functional one that aligns with individual wishes.
The clue is the on-going dialogue between the property owners and the practice.
VORBILD Architecture was established by Michael Schienke. Having worked at some of the top practices in London, Michael has vast experience working on luxury residential projects and yachts, as well as on large multi-unit architectural schemes and project managing high-end construction.
He has surrounded himself with a dynamic and dedicated team, who share the same zeal for creating bespoke spaces. Each team member has their own strengths, from managing complex projects like extensions to overseeing the details like marble and stone.
Michael is also a regular contributor to Houzz, where he often participates in live discussion panels, and he has been featured in The Times.
The practice has appeared many times in the press, including Ideal Home, House Beautiful, 25 Beautiful Homes, Kitchens Bedrooms & Bathrooms, A Place in The Sun, The Sunday Business Post, Kids’ Interiors, Decoist and Nonagon Style.
