ZAP Architecture is a high end design collaborative blurring the boundaries between art and architecture. ZAP aim to go the extra mile for their clients to create something truly bespoke and thought provoking. Scale is something that interests ZAP meaning no job is too big, too small or unworthy. Our work ranges from conventional residential planning applications to high end fashion events, bespoke furniture, animated gardens to pop-up restaurants. ZAP wait anxiously on new and exciting briefs and clients to engage with. Creativity is something we live and breathe here in the ZAP office. The Architect’s Journal cited ZAP as the “young one’s to watch”.
