We are architects in Bath and have a reputation for ingenious architecture. We design elegant contemporary buildings that sit perfectly in their wider context. Our portfolio is extensive, each project born from our sensitive architectural approach and desire to apply the most sustainable architectural solutions.

Based in Bath, serving Bristol, Cotswolds, the South West and beyond.

Above all, Designscape are nice people to work with, challenging our preconceptions and helping us to lift the quality of design to give us a practical, buildable and elegant solution.

Your Architectural Project

Our work encompasses both residential and commercial architecture and our business is ingenious architectural design.

No two projects are the same and with our collaborative approach and drive to provide ingenious individual architectural solutions, our portfolio demonstrates a range of commercial projects and private homes of which we are extremely proud.

We work with organisations, businesses and professionals on designing innovative workplaces and have extensive practice in Big Shed design. Housing projects and Senior Living, buildings for the Arts & Education sectors and unusual one-off projects for clients including Science, Museum, Art Gallery, Farming and Equestrian Architecture. Sustainable architecture underlines everything in our commercial portfolio.

We work with private individuals on sustainable new build houses, alterations and contemporary extensions. We have particular expertise in historic and listed buildings and (proven success) with sites in challenging locations, such as the Green Belt and AONB. We have considerable experience in the design of environmentally conscious buildings.

Designscape’s contribution at each stage of our renovation project was essential to its success.  Chris stood out for understanding our aim to retain the character and feel of the period house we were renovating.  The light, airy, contemporary solution he proposed with its wide sliding doors leading into a new terrace has become our favourite room and gets a ‘wow’ from everyone who sees it. The support and imagination of the team at Designscape during the project enabled us to complete a challenging renovation and create a home that combines the best of old and new.
