Welcome to Cotswold Design and Build

Our designs remain true to the stunning vernacular architecture of the Cotswolds region while delivering the very best of modern functional living and style. With over 30 years’ experience in the area and 20 years working with London-based clients, as well as an extensive knowledge of conservation architecture, listed buildings and period properties, our ability to deliver cutting-edge design and create stunning homes sympathetic to the region is second to none..

Experience a new approach to construction

We offer an exceptional architectural service because we not only prepare the design for your project but also see it through to completion. You’ll experience a smoother, more cost-effective and transparent process than is typical of most construction projects today (typically, the architects have very little to do with the project after handing over their designs). Using our handpicked network of trusted Cotswold conservation builders, suppliers, artisans and craftspeople we personally ensure your designs are realised to the highest standards, on time and on budget. Having us there every step of the way means nothing is lost in translation and you are unlikely to face any unexpected costly revisions or hidden contractor markup fees.

Let’s bring your vision to life

Our goal is to help you realise the dreams you have for your home. This can be daunting and seemingly fraught with limitations, especially with the period properties and conservation areas typical of the Cotswolds region. We are trained and experienced in the traditional language of period architecture and can therefore explain how best to extend, alter and improve your period property – these are not skills taught in mainstream architectural education and therefore not found in most practices. We work closely with local authority conservation architects and are able to engage with planners with confidence and assurance.

Designing with you

Your project will begin with a personal and bespoke design session that utilises the latest 3D visualisation techniques, enabling you to engage with the design process in a truly unique manner. Whether your home is contemporary or traditional, using a full 3D model of your existing property we sketch out and develop the designs with you, so that you can truly understand and visualise the process and logic behind the design development and solutions available. You can be confident that the finished work will look and feel precisely as it was designed.

What We Do

We’re qualified architects who are able to design and detail all aspects of your build. We specialise in period and traditional design and can provide contemporary design through our London-based award-winning partners Coupedeville Architects and Tsuruta Architects.

Unlike most architects, we can manage your project through to completion, drawing on our network of local, skilled tradespeople and artisans, focusing on every last detail and ensuring maximum transparency all the way.

We design and coordinate beautiful kitchens and bathrooms to the highest standards.

Whether you want traditional, contemporary, or the best of both, we can help bring your home to life to create beautiful, functional spaces.
