Looking for architects in Coventry?

Lapworth Architects have been working around Coventry for over 20 years, providing excellence in design to residential and commercial clients across the West Midlands. 

Led by Michael Kalam since 2010, the firm has grown since then thanks to their award-winning architecture across a range of sectors, including residential, commercial, industrial and educational projects. 

Our team of architects have completed dozens of projects in the Coventry area, from the suburbs of Canley and Tile Hill, out towards the more rural areas and the towns of Kenilworth and Leamington Spa.

Our work in Coventry is based on accompanying our clients at every step of the process from first contact to handover, complemented by our fantastic depth of professional knowledge and local experience.

Supported by our own specialist in-house planning and interiors division, we can provide a complete service and designs tailored to our client’s individual requirements, whether designing new build houses on Kenilworth Road, or restoring period properties in Stoneleigh.

Award Winning Architects in Coventry

In addition to our healthy roster of new-build and extension projects in the city, we’re experts in refurbishing historic or period buildings, including Grade I or II listed buildings both in town, suburbs and outlying villages. 

We’ve also worked on many grant-aided projects for Coventry City Council on projects on Far Gosford Street in the centre, in addition to other local boroughs in the area, such as on Hagley Hall and Croome Court, and Haseley Manor.

We’re particular proud of our reputation for planning permission for houses in tricky conservation areas like Kenilworth Road, Spon End, and in the city centre – like the Far Gosford project above. 

One of our more ambitious projects involved designing the canal boat marina at Longford, by Alderman’s Green Road on the site of the old power station, including new build houses and light industrial units in this mixed-use scheme.

Architects for extensions and new-build homes

We have established ourselves as one of the leading firms of residential architects working in Coventry, and have a great reputation across the region for the quality of our services and the finish of our projects.

Our service focusses on giving our clients elegant design solutions to meet their needs and improve their homes, while providing interesting architecture to complement the immediate surroundings that seamlessly meet planning requirements.
