Award Winning Architects in the West Midlands

Lapworth Architects have been a top architecture practice in the West Midlands area for over 20 years, providing excellence in design to residential and commercial clients from the Cotswolds to Staffordshire. 

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

Our success as West Midlands architects is based on a philosophy of accompanying our clients at every step of the process, and using our fantastic depth of professional knowledge and local experience, supported by our own specialist in-house planning and interiors division.

We’ve worked with large-scale developers like Spitfire Homes, property management companies such as Calthorpe Estates, city and borough councils, as well as hundreds of private individuals and other stakeholders in cities and towns, as well as in more rural locations all around the West Midlands. 

Some of our projects include transforming many period buildings in the cities’ conservation areas, completely new housing in the West Midlands green belt, and we’ve also worked on renovating stately homes and landmarks like Croome CourtHagley Hall and Knutsford Lodge, and were closely involved in the plans to renovate Great Barr Hall in Walsall.

Local experts in planning and design

In our designs our goal is to achieve the highest standards of excellence and sustainability in retail projects, new build houses and in residential development. We have been recognised for our design excellence for a number of regional and national organisations, winning awards such as the CABE ‘Building for Life’ Gold award for our work on the Lickey Grange development in Bromsgrove, the Green Tree Awards and several categories of the Birmingham Post Housing Design Awards. 

More recently we’ve featured in the Housebuilder Awards 2019 for our work on Haseley Manor in Warwickshire, and we featured in the Sunday Times British Homes Awards 2019 for our Courtyard Gardens development and additional landscaping.
