KS Architecture CV

Konstantina Samara

BA(Hons), DipArch ARB RIBA ​

The practice was established in 2016 and is based in Cornwall. Our focus is on delivering excellent housing and securing planning permissions.

Prior to this, I gained experience at multi-national architecture firms AEDAS Architects Ltd, Liverpool Office (now Abbey Holford Rowe) and Pollard Thomas Edwards Architects in Liverpool. My work there spanned a diverse range of projects, from private houses to social housing and accommodation for retirement living.

At our practice, we are committed to creating exclusive and cutting-edge designs. We invest heavily in the design and specification of each development, ensuring that excellent standards are achieved and maintained.

Our approach to each project is based on observation and discussion, exploring ideas derived from the site's context and the client's design culture. We undertake meticulous research to understand the built and social history of a site, allowing us to propose work that is both informed by its history and contemporary. The resulting proposal celebrates the potential of the site's existing conditions.

We prioritise the imaginative use of existing structures in our work, focusing on low-tech, high-performance construction and adopting a fabric-first approach to creating robust and adaptable projects.

KS Architects is a member of the Bude-Stratton Design Review Panel, consulting with the local planning committee on planning applications.

We believe in constant learning, so regardless of what knowledge level we may be, there is always something new to explore.

We met Konstantina about 4 years ago. She admired our house. We said we loved the location and house but we had to compromise on a few things, as you do when you buy a home.

Konstantina asked what would be on our wish list. 

We then spent a while thinking about it. She has now successfully guided us through a beautiful design, planning permission and building regulations. Our building works start mid-May 2018. A great personalised service, hugely recommended.

From our initial thoughts of whether to extend or new build, to design and finally obtaining planning permission Konstantina was always on hand to offer advice and guidance in a professional and knowledgeable way. We would recommend her services to anyone and look forward to seeing her design becoming a reality.

KS Architectural Design and Konstantina has produced a really cutting edge design for our small Victorian terraced house.

Throughout the project she has been hands on with advice and support. Have already recommended to a good friend.

One of the great beauties of architecture is that each time, it is like life starting all over again.
