our Practice

Our award-winning team of local architects, including two RIBA Chartered Architects and one Conservation Accredited Architect (AABC and RIBA), are creative, highly-skilled and share a passion for sustainable design. We are based in Bowhill, our Exeter headquarters, but work across Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and beyond.


We have a wealth of experience in the conservation, refurbishment and renovation of Listed Buildings and the sustainable design of extensions and new builds. We have also worked extensively in conservation areas and are experts in negotiating and justifying planning proposals.


We are a RIBA accredited Chartered Practice. This demonstrates that hmad|architects is committed to excellence in design and customer service. All RIBA accredited Chartered Practices must meet a strict eligibility criterion, which includes:  adhering to the RIBA's Code of Conduct, implementing appropriate Quality Management, Environmental Management and Equality and Diversity policies, having appropriate Professional Indemnity Insurance and employing an appropriate number of RIBA Chartered Architects.

our approach

At the heart of our practice is a belief that all design should be sustainable and innovative. We approach our work holistically with a firm focus on leaving the best possible legacy for future generations.


Our approach prioritises building a strong relationship with our clients. We want you to trust us and feel that we will listen to what you want to achieve within your project. 


We offer every prospective client a free consultation in which you can meet the team, discuss your project ideas and get a feel for whether working with us is the right choice for you.  Tell us your aspirations and your budget, and this will form the basis for developing a design concept.
