Brighton and Hove Architect - Welcome to Stewart Nicholson Architects

We are dynamic, design-led, Brighton and Hove Architects specialising in working with clients to design beautiful contemporary homes, extensions, conversions and refurbishments.

Our experience is in residential, office, listed building planning and building with a specialism in 3D design and visualisation. We are experienced in dealing with tricky projects and design challenges.

We enjoy working closely and collaboratively with our clients to produce the right results for them. Creating beautiful, bespoke and functional architecture. Our approach to projects is to understand the vision and objectives of the client and then to work hard to explore options and find solutions that surpass expectations yet remain practical, achievable and lasting.

Our aim is to exceed expectations without exceeding budgets.

Whether you’ve bought land and want to start completely from scratch or have a flat in need of refurbishment, we work with you  to incorporate your ideas and goals. Every client receives individual attention, each project is a one-off, we enjoy working toward bringing your ideas to life when designing your project.

We are passionate about good design. Our work is modern and we aim to make the best use of what is already there – the site, the climate, the views, the path of the sun, to maximise the potential of your scheme achieving the biggest effect for your budget.

We have an in-depth working knowledge of the planning, building control and detailed design phases of a project, we achieve high levels of approvals on Brighton, Hove & Sussex planning applications. Recent projects include two new build houses, refurbishment and extension to an existing house, a kitchen and bathroom remodelling plus an industrial unit fit out.

Our experience covers projects from £30,000 – £1 million in a variety of sectors from office developments to high quality residential works. Maximising value through being creative, we have an excellent reputation for unlocking the potential of challenging sites and buildings.

We aspire to making extraordinary buildings and spaces, even from the most difficult of design briefs. We invest a great deal of energy throughout the design and construction process, to ensure all parties involved fully appreciate our design intentions thus ensuring that the best possible design is ultimately revealed.

We pride ourselves on delivering homes that look, flow and feel exactly as our clients imagined. Through open dialogue and attention to detail, we create contemporary classic designs individually tailored to each client’s taste and requirements.

We manage each residential project from concept to completion. Our experience in feasibility, procurement and planning permission allow our clients to sit back and enjoy watching their project take shape.
