studio_néo (nέo – greek, meaning – fresh, new, contemporary,)

studio_néo is a niche design company headed by Architect Steve West.

The architects at studio-néo carry forward over 25 years of experience of design and management in the commercial, leisure and development industries delivering to both existing long-term clients and new commissions.

Our philosophy is simple – we place great emphasis on creativity within a practical and business-like framework.

That means listening, understanding and performing – whether delivering an inspiring, motivating workplace, steering new proposals for a Heritage Asset through challenging Planning and Listed Building Legislation or designing an imaginative and financially viable development masterplan for a site.

“Logic will get you from A to B, imagination will take you everywhere”.  Albert Einstein

We aim to do both.
