Gus Zogolovitch

Managing Director

Unboxed Homes

London

Gus Zogolovitch started his career at Goldman Sachs in London where he was an equity analyst before he set up his first property specialising in residential projects.

He ran this venture for a couple of years alone before he joined his architect father, Roger, and set up Solidspace with the aim to deliver design-led boutique new-build projects on forgotten inner city gap sites. He pioneered the Solidspace split-level model by building his own house in north west London where he still lives today.

Gus started on his entrepreneurial career path after discovering a gap in the market – project management for refurbishment projects – and building a business offering those services. He ran this venture for a couple of years before joining his architect father, Roger Zogolovitch, to set up Solidspace, which aims to deliver design-led boutique, new-build projects on forgotten inner-city gap sites.

Gus Zogolovitch has most recently started his own property development venture, Unboxed Homes, which acts as London’s first custom-build enabler, helping people build their own Grand Designs while also selling some of the most desirable new-builds in London. Unboxed Homes believes that to make better homes, the inhabitants need to be included in their creation. That way they will be built to last, better designed, and environmentally sustainable.
