Private Houses

Whether you are looking to rebuild your family home or construct a new house on a new site, John Coward Architects are experts in the design and procurement of one off bespoke houses. We will work extremely closely with you to develop your initial ideas into real working designs and then guide the project through the various design stages to the point where you are ready to start construction. If you would like us to remain involved during the construction phase we are very experienced in the role of contract administrator and will as act as liaison between you and your builder.

We understand the challenges that come with projects set in our region’s internationally significant rural landscapes as well as their tight knit towns and villages. We have developed excellent partnerships with the region’s Local Authority and National Parks Development Control departments so we are able to respond positively to the ever changing requirements of local planning needs.

Environmental design is at the forefront of our consideration and with our Green Registered Architect and Certified Passiv House designer we will bring to your project the expertise to deliver an environmental friendly home that meets all of the current targets relating to sustainability and the reduction of carbon emissions.
Our houses respect local vernacular building techniques and materials but marry them with a modern, contemporary flavour to provide you with a dream dwelling in harmony with the region’s landscape settings and delivering a light, spacious, welcoming place to call home.
