Your award-winning Sutton Coldfield architects

Welcome to Lapworth Architects! Led by local boy Michael Kalam since 2010, we’ve been working in and around Sutton Coldfield for over twenty years and have built dozens of homes in this lovely part of the West Midlands – from simple extensions to smaller developments to complete new-builds in Four Oaks.

Our work in Sutton has been very varied, and we’ve been able to gain plenty of experience in private housing projects, development and retail architecture – we’re sure you’ll have seen some of our work around town!

Whether you’re thinking of having a kitchen-diner or home office, want to build a house on a plot of land or just need your house to work better for you, we can help you with thoughtful design, top service, clear and honest communication – and value for money.

We’re proud to work closely with our clients in Sutton Coldfield to integrate their wants and needs into a design that they love – that also gets approved by the council with no fuss so they can start building as soon as possible.

Our clients in Sutton are usually demanding, and expect top-quality houses and great service, which keeps us on our toes and motivates us to design bespoke home that meet their needs and impress the neighbours!

Many of the projects in Four Oaks, Little Aston and Mere Green have been large family homes including fantastic features like cinema rooms, pool houses and so on, but even modest projects such as rebuilds and extensions have high expectations that we’re proud to meet.

We’re also very familiar with the unique features of Sutton Coldfield such as the private Four Oaks and Little Aston estates and the nearby Green Belt, which helps our project planning applications be agile, smooth, and likely to be approved and gain consent from all the stakeholders involved

In addition, we’re in touch with other local experts and professionals to help us project manage our builds, and can bring our high-quality recommendations to your project – our location near Butlers Lane means we can be on site quickly to resolve any issues.
