OUR EXPERTISE

Atkinson Architects broad portfolio of work in Devon and Cornwall, consists of contemporary architecture, listed building conservation, heritage repair schemes and sustainable design. We have a holistic approach to architecture encompassing interior design, landscape and ecology with several award-winning projects.

We focus on country and coastal houses, barn and mill conversions, rural farm estates, churches and civic buildings. Creating new uses and breathing life into period property and listed buildings of all types - from medieval settlements through to Georgian, Victorian and Modernist architecture.

Atkinson Architects help clients secure planning permissions, building regulations approval, listed building consents and grant funding on challenging sites.

We operate within some of the most spectacular and sensitive locations in the South West - the vast majority being designated conservation areas, Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks, Coastal Preservation Zones (CPZ), Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) across Devon and Cornwall.

"We chose Atkinson Architects on the strength of their experience for our Georgian townhouse in Salcombe. An open-minded and intelligent approach to design, they listened to our aspirations and negotiated the planning process smoothly. On-site they had a rigorous approach to construction and building costs. A wholly successful outcome and we would highly recommend the practice."

Dr Edward & Shirley Kirkby, Salcombe, Devon

"From the outset, Atkinson Architects led our daunting project to renovate a derelict farmhouse and barns. Firstly they helped secure grant funding, listed building and planning approvals. Secondly managed the whole conservation and renovation stages on our sites with great skill and care."

Norman & Jane Cole, Harford, South Dartmoor

"Richard's vision and energy were invaluable in gaining our planning permission and driving through our building project in East Portlemouth. He is particularly good at blending the old and new with original architectural features and a natural feeling for light and space. Richard cares about his clients and delivers a highly personalised service with great attention to detail - the result is we have a house which is a pure joy to live in - we would highly recommend his services."

Paul Fleming & Eileen Marino, East Portlemouth, Devon
