calfordseaden’s award-winning architecture team provides clients with high-quality designs based on innovation, flexibility and sustainability.

Our RIBA accredited architects are creative, innovative and work collaboratively to design solutions that are appropriate for our clients’ needs and budget.

We have an extensive portfolio of projects which includes education, residential, commercial, community and senior living schemes for both public and private sector clients. We have also designed large scale regional distribution centres for retail clients.

Our design philosophy is based around people and sustainability. From our initial briefing, through the design development process and beyond, we fully encompass the concept of Building for Life and take pride in the buildings we design and the places we create.
