We are award winning architects based in London. Our projects are international and we operate across residential, hospitality and service industries.

We believe thoughtful architecture and design benefits society and is a force for social change. From the smallest intervention to a large scale development – regardless of scale, architecture has the potential to shape and transform society for the better.

We take an interest in everything in equal measure: from the most improbable to the most obvious, from the smallest to the most imposing, from the most economical to the most luxurious. Art is a source of constant inspiration within our practice and a true driver of our existence. We like to surprise and reinvent each time whilst keeping the same demanding level of quality and attention to detail.

We are guided by one overarching principle: to craft impeccable, elegant and thoughtful spaces and objects.

Manea Kella was founded in 2017 by Elena Kella and Adrian Manea.
