Meet the team

At JAR Architecture we are a creative group of architects, technologists and designers who are passionate about what we do. We take great pride in our work and have a varied portfolio of past projects you can browse. We embrace the latest technologies and sustainable practices to ensure that our projects are not only visually impactful but also environmentally conscious.

We understand that using an Architect isn’t an everyday occurrence and can be quite daunting. Our highly skilled and professional team will ensure that you are fully guided throughout the design, planning and construction process (whether you are constructing a new build, adapting an existing property or developing a commercial project). We put as much emphasis on the journey as end result and will keep you informed and involved every step of the way. Our design process is open, interactive and collaborative to ensure that all your goals are met and your vision is fully brought to life.

Our commitment to client care is at the heart of everything we do and has resulted in a high rate of repeat clients with most of our new clients coming to us by “word of mouth”. This is something we are very proud of and demonstrates the quality of service we, as a team, provide.
