hughWelcome to the website of Hugh Owens Architect Ltd. I am a registered Architect, member of the Royal Institute of British Architects and run a Chartered Practice. With over thirty years’ experience of working across the East and West Midlands, I offer a tailored service to bring the best possible architectural design solutions to your project. I aim to explore design opportunities you never thought possible within your budget and delight you by bringing the extraordinary to what might otherwise be ordinary.

Based in Bingham, Nottinghamshire, I cover South and East Nottinghamshire, North Leicestershire and West Lincolnshire. Although electronic communication makes relatively long distance design management possible, I find personal contact and face to face meetings more beneficial and limit my radius of operation to offer the best individual service I can.

I have worked at senior level for some of the largest Architectural practices in the Midlands acquiring a wealth of experience that I can bring to any project regardless of size. Having successfully managed multimillion pound projects in the past, in 2012 I returned to my true passion of designing for private clients and smaller companies who share my ambition of making the most of every design opportunity.

I strongly believe that this approach raises the standards of our built environment and enhances the lives of those that both use the buildings and see them.

My specialism is in individual houses for private clients. From relatively modest extensions, complete renovations and makeovers to bespoke residences, every scheme warrants the same level of commitment and design consideration. The focus of my work is in conservation areas and increasingly on older historic properties. My philosophy in all situations is to bring a contemporary approach to making buildings fit for today and the future.

Our streets and towns are unfortunately littered with poorly considered buildings where lack of thought has left a legacy of a wasted opportunity.

Budget constraints need not prevent innovation and good design. My aim is to provide the best possible service to achieve the most successful outcome for all to enjoy.

I hope the following pages inspire your ambitions. I have many happy clients who can testify to the success of my service and I hope I will have the opportunity to offer you the same.
