Bespoke homes in select places

If you’re looking for a new build house, we’ve got projects in Solihull or Sutton Coldfield, Cotswold-inspired bungalows near Stratford-upon-Avon, 1950s-style extensions in Harborne and period refurbishments in Edgbaston.

All of the projects come with our signature attention to detail, planning knowledge, architectural expertise and outstanding customer service, as proved by our excellent Houzz and Google reviews (below). 

Our experience in larger developments gives us the edge over our competitors, as we have the basics of top-notch home development down – and can do exactly the same for you.

Our recent private residential architecture projects

I am extremely pleased with Lapworth architects. I just told them in my amateur way what I imagined or wanted in my bungalow and they drew lovely accurate plans. Michael patiently took on board my multiple requests to make changes as new ideas came to me and he always incorporated them with even further development which shows his expertise.
