Based in Odiham, Hampshire, Vesta Architects is a RIBA chartered practice that has a passion for creating cost-effective and well-crafted architectural projects. Founded by Michael Benwell and Luis Floyd, Vesta Architects specialise in residential projects of all sizes across Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey.
As a studio, we are devoted to understanding the needs and ambitions of our clients. Our role is to successfully translate your vision into the built environment, and we believe the key to articulating that vision is to embrace client engagement throughout the design and construction process.
From concept to completion, we invest time into careful consideration of programme, material and building methods to ensure our projects are delivered on time and within budget.
Michael graduated from the University of Portsmouth with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Architecture in 2010, before returning in 2012 to undertake the Master of Architecture program where he was awarded a distinction for his thesis.
Michael then went on to gain experience working for a number of award-winning practices across London and the South East.
Following the award of his Diploma in Professional Practice at London Metropolitan University in 2016, Michael then registered with the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and became a chartered member of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
Luis qualified as an Architectural Technician in 2011 and went onto work for a local architectural practice. During that time, Luis gained a HNC in Construction where he was awarded a merit.
In 2013, Luis established his own architectural practice where he specialised in bespoke residential house design. Luis successfully ran his practice for 5 years, designing and building homes across the South East of England.
Having lived and worked in North Hampshire and the surrounding areas most of his life, Luis has extensive local knowledge and connections with many local authorities.
