Whitehead and Parkin Architects create contemporary and sustainable architecture to suit modern life.
how we work
We are an RIBA chartered architects practice in Sheffield with experience of many different types of buildings creative workspaces, commercial interiors, offices, industrial workspaces, homes and housing. Our work includes new-build and refurbishment projects.
We work closely with our clients to develop a unique response to each project; by addressing your individual needs we can provide a tailored design solution. We design holistically, balancing needs, use, budgets, environment and sustainability to meet our clients' aspirations. We communicate with our clients with understandable drawings and sketches at all stages.
Green design and low energy use is at the heart of our approach. 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, improving wellbeing and reducing energy use without sacrificing good design.
We've been finalists in The Sunday Times British Homes Awards three times; our innovative projects have been shortlisted in international competitions and published nationally and internationally, most recently the Liverpool City Region/Liverpool Architecture Festival Townhouse competition.
Integrating buildings with gardens, landscape design and townscapes underpins our projects. As qualified garden designers, we offer in-house fully integrated or stand-alone garden and external space design.
We love to get 'under the skin' to help our clients get the most out of their projects. As a small practice we give individual care and attention to each project whatever its size, bringing our technical expertise from our experience of large complex buildings.
We can offer you the full range of architects' services across all stages of projects. From our studio in Sheffield, we have undertaken projects across the country and are currently working on projects in Sheffield, the Peak District and the North West.
