Midhurst historic architecture

Our final list of suggested design practices that are from Sussex, where we are lucky enough to now work (and live!). The beautiful county is steeped in art and architectural history, with set to a backdrop of stunning natural landscape of the South Downs National Park.  

Here are some suggestions for architectural practices who have their studios dotted across Sussex, so if we do not quite fit with what you are looking for here are some alternatives you might want to look into, in no particular order:
