Architectural Partners

Architecture Meets Interior Design

Clifton interiors and Studio Mark Ruthven have collaborated for two decades to provide our clients with a broad range of experience in all aspects of residential architectural design. From the earliest stages of feasibility and planning, through the design of sustainable efficient buildings, and to the resolution of interior design and landscaping.

Mark and Rosie bring a truly unique and holistic approach to the design of a project and provide joint design and management services, managing the design fully to its completion.

Seamless Integration

Embarking on a home project can be daunting, so we make it our priority to support our clients, making the process more enjoyable for them. We encourage their involvement with the project from the outset, ensuring that, with our guidance and expertise, our clients realise their aspirations and more.

What Our Clients Have To Say

”Rosie and Mark and the team have created a home that we absolutely love and we will be forever grateful. With Clifton and SMR working cohesively together we benefited from leading architecture and top interior design, with the two studios collaborating throughout and seamlessly handling the project as one. It was a pleasure to work with them and we were hugely impressed with their creativity, quality of work and attention to detail. They listened carefully to the brief and delivered more than we could have imagined. They also allowed us to have as much involvement as we wanted ensuring the process felt collaborative, yet they took care of all the management of the project eliminating some of the stress and headache of doing a large-scale renovation. We speak very highly of them and happily recommend them to everyone – you won’t be disappointed!”

”Mark and Rosie (Clifton SMR) worked with us over several years on the redevelopment and redesign of a listed house in Highgate. They were a pleasure to work with and were able to marry our wish for a user friendly modern house that stayed to true to the original character and design of the house. The combination of architect and interior design acting as one project manager was very effective both in the process and the end result!”

”We have had the pleasure of working with Clifton Interiors and Studio MR for 15+ years, over multiple residential projects. Their designs have never failed to deliver exceptional living spaces through a pragmatic and collaborative approach to the client brief. The fact that clients return again and again over the years is testament to their creativity and ability to see projects through to conclusion.”

Clifton SMR is that rare practice that successfully integrates architecture and interior design with the experience and understanding of contemporary environmental systems. Not only do they thoughtfully apply this from the earliest stages of the design process but they follow through to completion and are always pleasure to work with.”
