Garnett Architecture is run by the people. Award-winning architectural practice offering a broad range of services including Architecture and Design, Town Planning and Sustainability.

Garnett Architecture is known for the skilful integration of contemporary architecture in heritage environments, and for giving new life to old buildings through adaptive interventions. As Architects much of our design work is carried out in Conservation Areas and the practice has an outstanding record of success with planning applications, particularly with complex sites involving a mix of uses.
