Chichester Architects

George & James Architects, award winning RIBA Architects based near Chichester. We craft buildings that are thoughtfully composed, enjoyable to be in and an enduring design. We produce buildings that we can all be proud of – happy, healthy places that are kind to you and the planet.

Contemporary Chichester Architects

Architectural design should be simple, sustainable and functional, beautiful yet understated, that's the belief that runs through our work, through our conversations, and through the life of our studio. Talk to any one of us, and you'll find we all share that same sense of commitment and that same strength of feeling.

At the start of our design process, before we do anything, we listen deeply to our clients to really uncover what they need from their building. To this we add our professional architectural design knowledge and experience from the variety of projects we have worked on, all inspiring us and pushing us a little further.

Across our design team we have worked on a huge variety of interesting projects, offering invaluable experience, from private one-off residential homes, sympathetic renovations, extensions, multiple unit housing schemes, commercial retail and office designs; we have even worked on a public library scheme and the café at Westminster Abbey! Our different perspectives and experiences bring a great deal to the design process, and we love bouncing ideas off each other and putting our heads together when a problem seems particularly tricky.  

If you're excited about what working together to craft a building just for you and your needs, we'd love to talk. On the other hand, if you’re not too bothered about what your building will look like or how it will make you feel, then we’re probably not the architects for you.

Our Chichester design experience

We were thrilled to have been recently recognised for a prestigious Sussex Heritage Trust Award for one of our local project. Our Farmhouse project is a beautifully crafted,  contemporary interpretation of the country home located near Pulborough, Sussex.

The local environment of Chichester and the surrounding coastal area are a real tonic to everyday pressure, which filters down as inspiration to our work. However, our work is not limited to the Chichester area we live in, we keep our horizons wide, and we have architectural projects in many corners of London and the South East. In fact, if it’s the right project and the right client, we’ll work almost anywhere.


"George & James are incredible architects. They guided us with kindness, patience and complete professionalism. They turned our woolly suggestions into a vision for our house that we'd never have thought of in a million years. Their suggestions were simple yet incredibly effective and have truly transformed how we live in our home."
