I have a passion for working closely with clients, self-builders and community groups to help them turn their architectural dreams into a reality. This means working collaboratively with builders, consultants and other members of the construction industry to deliver high quality, well considered designs which do not cost the earth.

Products & Services

Architecture and Design Services

I can offer a comprehensive range of architectural and design services for people wishing to undertake a new construction or building project.
As an architect I can help guide the client through the whole of the construction process, taking a project from concept to completion.


Measured Surveys

Preparation of scaled 'as-existing' drawings are essential before you start designing. I will take accurate measurements, gather site information, photos, historic records and services maps so that we know exactly what is on the ground.


Planning Permission

Having navigated many projects through the planning system I can help with advice about your site, produce the necessary drawings and supporting information and guide it towards approval from the council.


Building Regulations

I can produce the necessary detailed drawings for Building Regulations approval. I will coordinate closely with your contractor and the relevant authorities.


Construction Drawings

This involves close coordination with the your chosen contractor to develop detailed drawing and specification information for pricing or construction.


Historic and Listed Buildings

I have a passion for old buildings and can help at an early stage of the project to advise on proposed alterations to historic structures and appropriate environmental measures to improve energy efficiency. I will put together a strong case for achieving listed building consent for all applications.


Sustainable Design and Consultancy

I can help develop a strategy for achieving your environmental goals. This might mean working towards a low energy house following passivhaus principles or deciding which renewable energy source is right for you.

I cannot recommended Lawrence highly enough, he was able to help us through the visioning steps of the project and came up with something which is not just practical, but also rather creative with ways to enhance the overall use and feel of the space created.

Throughout the planning process he kept us up to date with the progress and was able to put forward our case for the project to go ahead, as a result of challenges from the local planning authority, which he dealt with in a professional manner.

We have just worked with Lawrence to develop a set of plans for an extension to our house and to apply (successfully) for planning permission.

From the start we were impressed by Lawrence’s vision and his eco credentials. We felt like Lawrence saw the potential in our site and understood what we were trying to do. Lawrence developed a range of ideas that we never would have thought of and we have developed a very high quality design that we are really excited about.

We found Lawrence a pleasure to work with and enjoyed the collaborative process.

As a complete novice to the world of construction, I found Lawrence on line. When I met him I was impressed by his thoughtful but cheerful personality and by the professional manner in which he went about creating the plans for our proposed new house. He guided myself and my husband carefully and successfully through the planning process. His drawings were artistic and accurate and it was the help we received from Lawrence that gave us the confidence to proceed. My husband has health issues which added to our dependency upon Lawrence and we would like to thank him for both his work and his emotional support

This project was a delight from start to finish.
It was a pleasure dealing with someone who has obviously developed an affinity both for the unique patchwork landscape of North Devon and for the vernacular architecture of its rural farm buildings. Lawrence has the ability to create a clever juxtaposition of modern styling and technology with traditional materials such as cob, stone and oak. His attention to detail is remarkable and enables him to lift his inspiration seamlessly from the drawing board to site.

Furthermore, his ideas work. He has created for us a home that is good to live in and efficient to use, but also one that inspires and lifts the heart and soul in so many ways.
