Oliver Burns

Oliver Burns is a luxury architectural interior design studio that thoughtfully designs the world’s finest homes.

Working across an exclusive portfolio of international turnkey projects, our multi-disciplinary team has a world-class reputation for both bespoke private commissions and super-prime development projects.

Our exceptional architectural, creative and development credentials together with the highest levels of personal service, enable us to act as trusted advisors to discerning private families, developers and commercial clients.

This, underpinned by our values of Thoughtful Luxury, is reflected in our long-standing esteemed client relationships.



Since Oliver Burns’ inception at the turn of the millennium, our founders Joe Burns and Sharon Lillywhite have focused on creating beautiful and thoughtful homes for a sophisticated clientele. Backed by extensive property and design experience, award-winning developments and a natural eye for luxury, they take a hands-on approach to every project ensuring each is delivered with love and care.

Working on homes in London, country estates and internationally, they have developed a unique understanding of the requirements of the global ultra-high net worth individual. Together with their talented team and little black book of contacts, they focus on delivering truly outstanding results – creating a home from home for their clients, wherever they are in the world.


Thoughtful Luxury

At the heart of Oliver Burns is the concept of ‘Thoughtful Luxury’. We believe that luxury should go beyond beauty and aesthetics to reflect deeper values and meaning in our homes. Everything we do is thoughtfully considered, from taking our client’s exacting brief and seeking out the finest materials and finishes, to working in an ethical and responsible manner.  It is translated in our designs, reflected in our thoughtful detailing and the bespoke pieces we create with highly skilled artisans.

Thoughtfulness, we believe, is pivotal to delivering an exceptional home that surpasses our clients’ expectations. This is why from concept to completion, every luxury home or development we create is thoughtfully designed, thoughtfully built and thoughtfully finished.
