About Us

Nick set up his own firm 2 years ago following the dissolution of well-known Bath architectural practice Batterham Matthews, at which he was a principal partner and founder. His vision is to offer customers a complete building planning service by combining surveying & architectural disciplines under the same roof.

Sustainability at heart

Our particular passion is for sustainable architecture, using natural materials and modern energy efficient practices to make your renovation as affordable and practical as it is beautiful. We work with an appreciation of the site you have, its history and surroundings, so that the final building is in harmony with its context.

Making it happen

We can be as involved as you need us to be, from helping design and plan your project and seeing it through the consent process, to project managing the building work to completion.

Our decades of experience in Bath, Bristol and across the South West provide not just peace of mind but also access to our little black book of local construction and design professionals.
