Architecture Firm in Wolverhampton

Lapworth Architects have been a top architecture practice in the Wolverhampton area for over 20 years, providing excellence in design to residential and commercial clients all around the Black Country.

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 success is based on collaborating closely with 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 provide a complete architect’s service in Wolverhampton and designs tailored to our client’s individual requirements. We’ve worked with large-scale developers like Spitfire Homes, property management companies such as Calthorpe Estates, city and borough councils, as well as hundred of private individuals in and around the city.

Award Winning Architects in Wolverhampton

We’ve applied our expertise to a huge range of projects, including working on many period buildings in conservation areas, completely new housing in the West Midlands green belt, and private homes all over the region. While we’ve working on listed landmarks like Croome Court, Hagley Hall and Knutsford Lodge, our real expertise comes from designing fantastic high-end homes for our private clients with flair and features unique to each project – pool houses, cinemas, spice pantries, you name it, and we’ve done it! In our designs, we’re looking for design excellence and sustainability in retail projects, new build houses and in residential development. We have been recognised for our design quality by 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.
