Building types must be allowed to be changed to adapt to new uses so whether you are considering converting a barn into a business premises or a redundant church into a home, John Coward Architects have the necessary experience and design skill to realise the potential of existing built forms and spaces. Our team of designers and conservation specialists understand the very particular needs of existing buildings, many of which will be of historical significance and may well even be listed Heritage Assets, meaning that new designs must be sensitive to any historical significance and characterful setting.

Through understanding the language of existing buildings and the environment in which they are sited we can help to deliver an exciting new use that benefits not only the building and its users but the wider landscape of the region.
