De Rosee Sa is an architecture and design practice in Notting Hill Gate, London. Established in 2007 by Max de Rosee and Claire Sa, we deliver contextual, imaginative and elegant architecture.


We are a design-led practice made up of talented architects, designers and support staff. We pay close attention to the historical and social context of a building to bring character and meaning.


Our creative process is collaborative, strongly influenced by our clients, consultants and contractors. We believe in adding value for our client by creating spaces with atmosphere and quality.

“Working with De Rosee Sa was a pleasure!  It was such a good experience and I can honestly say we would do it all over again. Their hard work, patience, attention to detail and efficiency culminated in a project we are so happy with.”

"Our experience of working with De Rosee Sa has been a very happy one. During the design process they really listened to what we wanted and even though the budget was small, the timescale tight, and our ideas ambitious, they were patient and innovative throughout. I think everyone agrees that the completed design is both elegant and fit for purpose and it has been fun and inspiring to work together to achieve it."

"De Rosee Sa have delivered the perfect family home that is timeless, practical and beautiful. We could not be more grateful to the team for their hard work and persistence that has culminated in the most amazing house. I think they all know how much we love living here as I have been emailing them to say so every week since we moved in!"

"Not many people can say this of their building experience, but mine was almost enjoyable! This was wholly due to De Rosee Sa who guided us seamlessly through the process from start to finish. From the drawing board to the construction site their involvement seemed to 'take away the pain'. They were diligent and detail oriented to an exceptional degree. I cannot recommend them highly enough, and would be thrilled to use them again."

"I engaged De Rosee Sa to design and to manage (including obtaining planning consent) the refurbishment of my property. The practice is well organised, efficient, with good communications and, above all, gave excellent follow up. Now, nearly one year later, it all shows ... the design, the quality and the attention to detail."
