Prestige Architects Marco Braghiroli

Internationally renowned architect and founder, managing director of Prestige Architects

Marco Braghiroli Arch, ARB, RIBA, SBID is the visionary, founder and managing director of Prestige Architects.

An esteemed architect with decades of experience in the prime and uber-prime residential market, Marco has built a strong portfolio of loyal clients who value his discretion, aspirational vision and meticulous approach.

Marco’s Italian roots and artistic heritage have given him an unrivalled eye for sourcing the finest materials. With Marco overseeing every project, no detail is left to chance.

Clients view him not as an external advisory, but as a trusted colleague/confidant often relied upon to oversee multiple multi-million-pound projects with little interjection or interaction.

It is this highly personal, exceptional level of service that leads the vast majority Prestige Architects clients to return time and again. A return rate of 80% has seen Marco renovate second, third, fourth (and more) properties for clients and their families, both in the UK and overseas.

Background and Architectural Credentials

Marco completed his architectural studies at the Politecnico of Milan, a renowned centre of excellence in the industry and one of the top 10 universities in the world. He later studied interior design at the University of Hasselt in Belgium. 

In 2000, Marco made the move to London where he spent his early career with some of UK’s leading architectural firms in traditional architecture, working on iconic academic college projects for Cambridge and Oxford and quickly rising to senior associate.

Marco discovered his love for private residential design early on and began to focus his energy in this field. He wanted his vision for each project to be tailored on a personal level and began to carve a niche for himself with select high-end clients; those with a passion for creating beautiful spaces, that mirrored his own. This approach led Marco to work on some truly exceptional projects, from the careful redevelopment of listed buildings to multi-property townhouses in central London, reconfigured to make the most incredible, extraordinary homes.

It was in 2009 that Marco decided to set up his own business, and in 2015 he made the jump full time when one of his repeat clients pledged his ongoing business and support.

Marco based himself in Chelsea and quickly established himself as the go-to architect for high-net worth individuals in search of a practice with a keen eye for detail and exceptional customer service levels.

Prestige Architects has grown to become much more than an architectural practice, offering a suite of services that includes all stages of architecture; development and bespoke joinery design; combined with the key passion of the team, which is design management.

Through Prestige, Marco has assembled a strong team of exceptional professionals that continue to deliver beautiful, bespoke and luxurious private properties, strengthening his reputation for design excellence at the top end of the market.

"I have worked with Marco and his team at Prestige for close to 10 years. The projects are always exciting with encouragement to engage and cooperate with the wider design team. From the start of any scheme, Marco and Prestige put the clients brief at the forefront of all decisions and ensure that all consultants are onboard with the vision. Marco has a great relationship with his consultants, and it has been a pleasure working on so many projects with him."
