About Us
Studio Idealyc was created in the autumn of 2008 by architect Francisco 'Curro' Checa Romero, after he had gained considerable experience across the diverse field of Architecture. The company is based in Shoreditch and works throughout London.
Our work covers a range of small to medium projects. We offer advice as planning consultants as well as a complete building service, developing projects from their initial concept to their physical realisation. Every stage is considered with the most minute attention to detail, as Curro recognises that this is the only way to achieve a truly unique end result.
The practice's approach is heavily context focused and always user centred. We respond directly to the site and skeleton of the building in a way that results in an enduring and characterful architecture. Starting with the recognition that the route to successful design is a collaborative process, the studio delivers architecture with strong identity and sense of history, alongside consistent, high quality craftsmanship that compliments our intentions.
The projects we work on vary from short term consultations and advice regarding different aspects of the planning process to developing major projects into complexly detailed constructions. The practice works together with a series of trusted, professional consultants and sub-contractors to ensure that every job is completed to the highest standard. The experience we gather from this feeds into all aspects of our work.
We currently hold a 100% successful rate of Planning and Building Regulations approval. This ratio is testimony to the rigorous approach we value in the studio since the inception of the practice where our first project was Highly Commended as the Best Community based Planning Initiative at the London Planning Awards 2007.
