Our current meetings and working arrangements

We would like to reassure all clients and interested parties that lapd Architects have measures in place to limit the disruption as a result of COVID-19.

All members of staff are fully equipped to work from home and able to continue to work on your project as we would normally. We are running a skeleton staff in the office and are able to arrange all meetings remotely if required.

We are still welcoming new enquiries, so please do not hesitate to get in touch to arrange these consultations, directly or remotely with one of our directors.

Finding your solution

Extensions and Refurbishments


"I am a homeowner who needs an architect that listens to me and can transform my house into a home that is designed around my life."

We are expert architects that have guided hundreds of homeowners along the journey to their dream home.

New Homes and Self Build


"I want the new-build of my dreams and I need an architect that will keep me in control of the choices which matter most."

We work to filter the noise and guide you through the new-build journey from initial concept design to moving in to your finished home.

Self Build at Graven Hill


"I am self-building at Graven Hill and want to work with an Architect that understands the Graven Hill process."

We make sure that you remain in control of the choices that matter most to you. Get the design you want built to your budget.

Commercial or Developer Projects


"I am a commercial client or developer who needs an architect to deliver projects on time and on budget."

We work closely with you and listen to your requirements to create a strategic plan that fits in with your goals.

Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas


"I own a listed property or live in a conservation area and need an Architect that can deliver my design goals whilst remaining sensitive to the context of my home."

We have expertise in listed and conservation properties throughout the UK.

Interior Design


"I need an interior designer that can inspire me and transform my space."

We can help you make the right decisions at the right time by listening to what you want.

What does an Architect do? Well, it’s much more than just drawing up designs. A great Architect should be your guide throughout the whole process. From understanding how you live and designing around your life to helping you on site to realise your dream home.

Our Architects have worked with hundreds of residential and commercial clients over the years. We listen to our clients before we do anything else. We work with you to filter the noise and give you the headspace to make the decisions which matter most to you.

We have office locations in Abingdon, North Oxford, Henley and Graven Hill (Bicester). If you’re looking to build a new home, renovate your current property with an extension/ renovation, or self build your dream home at Graven Hill (or elsewhere), then we have a team that can work with you and your lifestyle.
