Residential architects in Solihull

As one of the most popular areas to live in the West Midlands, Solihull has been long been an important focus for our work and, at Lapworth Architects, our residential designs complement Solihull’s unique urbs in rure character.

Led by Michael Kalam since 2010, Lapworth Architects have worked extensively in the Solihull area for over 20 years, providing design excellence to residential and commercial clients all round the area.

As a large, wealthy town close to the countryside, Solihull has always been an important focus for our residential work, and we’ve built dozens of private houses and home extensions in the town itself, suburbs like Shirley and nearby villages such as Dorridge.

Our long experience in the area helps us hugely with potentially thorny issues such as planning or green belt issues, and we have serious and productive relationships with organisations like Solihull Council’s planning department or English Heritage.
