Petworth Architects

We are George & James Architects; an award winning RIBA practice located in Sussex. At the heart of everything we design is the believe that every building should make you feel good – whether it's your home, your studio, workplace, or perhaps a cafe or yoga studio. 

Established Petworth Architects

Our studio is in a beautifully restored dairy farm, located on the outskirts of Midhurst, West Sussex. We are lucky to have found such an inspirational place for our studio, where we have space to gather together as a team, surrounded by nature, which when paired with lashings of fresh air, really gets our creative minds going.

As a practice we design homes and buildings that we can all be delighted by – healthy, happy places that are kind to you and sustainably created to be kind to our planet. We firmly believe that the places where we live, work and play should be healthy and happy - filled with natural light, connected with nature, giving us everything we need to thrive.

If you are curious about how we could create a building that makes you feel good, 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 diverse architectural skills

As a team we have a large variety of design experience from working on a great mix of projects, from private residential homes, including new build, renovations and extensions; multiple unit housing schemes; commercial retail and office designs; we have even worked on a public library scheme and the high-end retail store. 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.  

We start each project by listening to our clients before we do anything else. We come to each project with open eyes and ears, and with honesty, curiosity and care. To this we add our professional architectural design knowledge and experience, all inspiring us and pushing us a little further.


"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."
