We strive to deliver great design and performance led architecture to anyone we work with. You can see what some of the people we've had the pleasure of working with have to say about us and our work below.

Anna Doyle
Head of Service, Regeneration

The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames

“WR-AP have been working with Kingston Council and our partners on the regeneration of the Kingston Riverside and we have been delighted with the way that they undertook the engagement process with a wide and ranging group of stakeholders and consultees to ensure that we gained the buy-in from all parties to the developing design proposals. Public realm projects are notoriously challenging projects to gain consensus on but with their sensitive approach to engagement management and innovative design proposals WR-AP were able to navigate our project through this process to a successful outcome”

Anna Sadler
 Programme Manager (Special Projects)

Serving Richmond and Wandsworth Councils

“WR-AP have been working with Richmond Council over the last couple of years on two community led projects. Throughout this period whilst they have exhibited innovative design excellence with their proposals, they have also shown great skill in managing and engaging with a large range of stakeholders on each of the projects to ensure we have gained buy-in from the community and end-users alike. It is this set of skills that sets them apart from others.”

Richard Knight

South London Swimming Club

“The Team at WR-AP have been a pleasure to work with during a complex project that encompassed a broad range of potentially conflicted stakeholders. Their work has been innovative yet incredibly well grounded in some of key considerations such as usability, sustainability and cost and they have helped us progress an optimal solution that meet the needs of a wide user base. Solid stewardship throughout the development phase with a strong professionalism throughout.”

Anne Ogundiya
Principal Planning Development Manager
London Legacy Development Corporation

“I have worked with Max Rengifo on two significant LLDC projects (East Wick Residential Phase 1 and Park Pivot) in both of those projects, in my opinion, Max demonstrated an excellent ability to communicate ideas to different stakeholders, including Planning Officers, Design Advisors, QRP and Planning Committee.  His dedicated attention to detail has also proven to be of the highest quality, making the design process enjoyable and collaborative”

Andrew Atkins
Development Director


“As Development Director of East Wick and Sweetwater I have worked with Max Rengifo for the last 2 years delivering Phase I of this residential-lead London’s Olympic Legacy project. Max -then Director of Astudio Architects- was actively involved from the inception of the project. He successfully lead the architectural team, working alongside the client body, to obtain full planning consent after a rigorous process with LLDC’s Quality Review Panel.  His ability to provide a clear narrative to guide the design process; as well as his understanding of construction and value was a breath of fresh air for the client body”.

Robert Atkinson
Head of Design

Morgan Sindall

“I have worked with Max delivering a multimillion-pound school in London while he was a director of Astudio and then as director of his own practice WR-AP.  During that time Max successfully lead the architect’s team, coordinating the design with different disciplines and subcontractors. As principal design manager it was a pleasure to work alongside Max due to his ability to effectively solve site enquiries and his excellent knowledge of educational buildings.”

Rob Warne
Senior Design Manager


“I really appreciated Max’s contribution and commitment as Lead Architect on our-council-led project in Luton. In circumstances where an extensive and diverse group of stakeholders often had conflicting needs, Max was never short of ideas and enthusiasm, which was instrumental in making the project a success. Highly recommended.”

Anisha Meyer
 Development Director

Balfour Beatty Investments

"As a client I am very pleased with the level of services and support we have received from WR-AP architects.  They have reacted quick to unforeseen challenges such as cost pressures, ensuring the impact on the programme of activities was minimised.  Their knowledge of the design process and high quality service contributed to stablish a very collaborative and open communication among all parts involved.”

Terence Mulvihill
Senior Project Manager

Ealing Council

“As project manager working for Ealing Council I was impressed with Sean’s ability to deliver good quality buildings under demanding time and cost circumstances. His performance was praised for his capacity to work from engagement sessions with various stakeholders, design coordination, up to construction documentation whilst working alongside the main contractor and its supply chain.”

Ben Phillips
Group Property Asset Manager

Waymade Capital

‘With humility and unbounding architectural knowledge, Sean led our design team on a residential led, mixed use scheme in Elephant and Castle. Incorporating 300+ homes (multi-tenure), commercial office space and a retail offer, his ability to construct a compelling narrative for the development, whilst at the same time having his finger on the pulse of the proposals financial viability proved invaluable. Rarely do you find an architect that understands and delivers on both aspects’
