03 / ABOUT ME
My name is Paola Scaccianoce and I am a qualified Architect (ARB registered) from Italy based in Bristol. As an architect in Bristol, I work freelance but also collaborate with architectural practices and architects. My projects to date have mainly been in the Bristol area but I have also completed projects throughout Italy.
I specialise in designing home extensions, internal reconfigurations, renovations and garage and loft conversions. I take care of all aspects of the design process, which includes an initial consultation, the site survey and production of existing plan drawings, the design work and the planning permission and building regulation applications.
During my career, before deciding to work as an architect in Bristol, I undertook studies in sustainable and eco-friendly architecture and consider it important for buildings to have as little negative impact on the environment as possible.
Although I am primarily an architect in Bristol, I have also been a freelance photographer for 12 years and specialise in architectural, interior and garden photography. I shoot mainly for architects, garden designers and construction companies. Examples of my work can be viewed here.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your project in more detail. I offer a friendly, fast and efficient service and put all my energy, enthusiasm and creative ideas into the projects I take on.

05 / TESTIMONIALS
This was the second time Paola has helped me. Again did a fantastic job and I would highly recommend her and use her again for my future projects.
Paola was recommended to us by one of her professional colleagues to assist us with the partial reconfiguration of the top floor of our Victorian semi-detached house. The project involved the removal and re-instatement of walls, ceilings, floors and roof supports to provide an enlarged bedroom with new en suite facilities and a refurbishment and enlargement of the existing family bathroom. Paola provided us with excellent, relevant advice on the design, technical and structural aspects of our project. Aside from the expected challenges associated with renovating a 150 yr old property, our builder had no difficulty interpreting Paola’s drawings & plans (detailed construction drawings were not necessary) to provide us with the solution we had expected.
I hired Paola to be in charge of designing the interior of my three high street shops (Milan, Taormina and Catania). I am extremely happy with the work she has done. She really gives attention to detail and has done a fantastic job!I would absolutely recommend her to anyone I know.
We are very pleased with the work Paola has done on our house in Portishead. From beginning to end she has provided an excellent service. At our first meeting she suggested some interesting ideas and alternatives which we hadn’t thought of. The design process all went very smoothly and Paola was able to guide us through all the various applications. What really stood out for us was the way she was able to help us visualise the design layout she had in mind, which we are now very happy with!
Paola designed my dental surgery and I couldn’t be happier with the result! It far exceeds what I had envisaged. She managed to create an overall design that works perfectly, always answered promptly to all my queries and provided a very professional service the whole way through. Highly recommended!
I hired Paola back in September 2018 soon after buying my house as I wanted to make some changes to the layout. She quickly understood what I had in mind and suggested some great ideas to create a big open space with a nice modern feel. I would highly recommend her.
Paola is extremely professional. Has a very friendly approach. She listens carefully to your requirements and is very prompt and thorough with her replies. Her work is very detailed and very carefully explained. I would recommend her to anyone. A pleasure to work with.
Paola produced the plans for my single storey extension and reconfiguration of my kitchen/dining area. Paola provided us with great design ideas and excellent support throughout the planning process. Paola is a great person to work with; very personable and patient (a virtue when 2 people can’t agree on a kitchen layout!). We hope to start the build in July 2020.
Thank you Paola for all the hard work you put into our design as we didn’t have a clue what was involved in the planning side of things. We can’t wait for the builder to start now! Thank you for the lovely design you have created for our home. From Neil Caroline and Anna
First rate. Meticulous complete service for my extension project. I would definitely use Paola again.
