"waparchitects helped us start to imagine the spaces we wanted to achieve. Several variations were patiently produced as we worked up the ideas we had. They also offered sound and thorough advice relating to relevant regulations across the project. I can’t imagine we were the easiest of clients but the end product is exactly what we imagined. The new spaces have transformed the perception of the company and our tenant clients are extremely happy."

about waparchitects

waparchitects Richmond upon Thames House

waparchitects design holistically, balancing clients' needs, use, design, environment and sustainability to meet our clients' aspirations. Integrating buildings with gardens, landscape design and townscapes is one of our specialities.

We've been finalists in The Sunday Times British Homes Awards three times and our projects have been published nationally and internationally.

Low energy use environmental design is at the heart of our approach and we're one of a handful of practices in the UK who have graduated from the AECB CarbonLite retrofit training giving us extensive experience of making existing buildings more comfortable and reducing energy use without sacrificing good design.


We can offer you a full range of architects services across all stages and sizes of projects. We can offer advice at the early stages of a project, give design ideas or a full technical design, produce submissions for planning applications and building regulations or any combination of these to suit the clients' needs. We can also offer in-house fully integrated or stand-alone garden and external space design; if you would like to know more about this, please visit wapgardendesign.co.uk.

From our Sheffield studio, we have undertaken projects across many parts of the country and are currently working on domestic and commercial projects across Sheffield, Yorkshire, the Peak District National Park.
