Sussex Architects

George & James Architects, local Sussex Architects.  

Award winning, contemporary architects based in the pretty town of Midhurst, West Sussex. We have set up our studio in a fabulous, refurbished old dairy barn which, when paired with lashings of fresh air, sets out creative minds going.

Experienced Sussex Architectural Practice

Our buildings are thoughtful, joyful and timeless (and so are we!) – we believe that architecture holds the power to make you feel good, whether it's your home, your workplace, or perhaps a farm shop, cafe or yoga studio. 

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.

We were thrilled to have been recognised for one of our local projects, with a prestigious Sussex Heritage Trust Award with an award win for the beautiful Farmhouse, a contemporary interpretation of the country home located near Pulborough, Sussex.

If you're excited about what a good building could do for you, 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 design skills and experience

We might appear young, but we’re surprisingly experienced. Between us we’ve worked on everything from York Theatre Royal and the cafe at Westminster Abbey to multi-housing developments and – of course – beautiful one-off houses in stunning locations.

Although we enjoy working locally on projects in West Sussex, we do like to 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."
