JAR Architecture


JAR Architecture was established by James Roobottom in 2011, initially working on small residential projects and has since developed into a multidisciplinary practice specialising in high-end residential and commercial developments.

We now have a team of highly skilled Architects and Technologists who are members of RIBA and CIAT delivering dynamic architectural design across North Wales and Chester who are passionate about architecture and the natural living environment.

We work on residential and commercial commissions across North Wales and Cheshire for a diverse set of clients providing a creative and economical solution that is fully suited to their requirements. We believe that good design is not just about aesthetics but is also about creating appropriate, sustainable and economical answers to our clients’ needs. We create creative, inspiring solutions to projects whether their value is £25,000 or £4,000,000. We use design to improve your living environment, adding value to your property and making spaces more useable.

History and Experience

Before setting up the practice, James spent the formative and early part of his career in medium to large scale architectural offices, taking responsibility for the running of medium to high value residential and commercial projects. James’s strength has always been seen to be his all-round ability to not only produce creative designs but also to bring an understanding of practical issues into the design process. His extensive experience of project management is also a valuable asset.
