Specialising in architectural design, planning consultation, conservation and project management, our architectural practice covers Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Llanelli, Swansea and Cardiff.


It is our belief that to produce high quality, sensitive and sustainable designs, a set of skills is required which extends beyond pure architectural services; whilst architecture remains our core business activity, the practice regularly uses its other in-house skills to add value to the service it provides.

The Practice also often works with other consultants /specialists to provide expert advice and reports. Some schemes require the support of such surveys to demonstrate the acceptability of the proposed development and therefore working with these specialists can be integral to a project. We routinely work with other consultants, including:

  • Structural Surveys / Building Engineers
  • Quantity Surveying / Project Managers
  • Fire engineers
  • Passivhaus certifiers
  • Topographical Surveys
  • Ecologists / Bat Surveys
  • Tree Surveys
  • Landscape architect
  • Interior designers
  • Noise / Acoustic Assessments
  • Land Contamination Reports / Coal Mining Risk Assessments
  • Drainage Surveys
  • Highways Assessments
  • Archaeological surveys and reports

Based in Whitland, we are conveniently located in West Wales with easy access to the major towns in Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion though our work often takes us further afield to the rest of Wales and the UK.
