Award-winning architects George Bradley and Ewald Van Der Straeten are presenters, teachers and directors of their own architecture studio, Bradley Van Der Straeten.
As a duo they present the ITV series Love Your Home and Garden alongside Britain’s most iconic gardener Alan Titchmarsh and his specialist team. Their role is to give life-changing face-lifts to families in desperate need of major transformations to their homes. They have also featured in press including Grand Designs and the Evening Standard to discuss their projects and current thinking in architecture.
Their company Bradley Van Der Straeten specialises in designing and renovating homes that inspire and delight the people that live in them. Their team works collaboratively with clients to deliver a space that can positively influence all aspects of your life, whatever your needs or your budget.
As well as numerous residential project their completed works include a major refurbishment and re-design of the world’s first purpose built centre for music therapy, a new home for charity Nordoff Robbins in Gospel Oak, London, using natural materials such as bamboo and brass to remodel a wellbeing salon in Hackney and The Studio, a contemporary mews property that George and Ewald built themselves.
George and Ewald also teach at the Interior Architecture department at the University of Westminster. In the future, they are interested in expanding their areas of research and practice into how the home can improve wellbeing and health. They are also interested in sharing their expertise to a wider audience so that people who can’t afford an architect can apply tried and tested methods on their own homes.
