Austin Design Works offer architectural and landscape services in combination or separately, depending on the individual requirements of each client.
We enjoy the challenges presented by every stage of a project, from planning and detailed design through to tendering and then on site. Our collaborative and informed design process enables us to gain a good understanding of the context and spirit of each brief, developing imaginative and considered schemes to achieve useful and beautiful spaces. Landscapes take time to evolve, and through high-quality materials and well-considered design, we believe in creating sustainable places for the future.
We are equally comfortable working on architectural and/or landscape schemes for bespoke residential developments; exceptional country houses that meet NPPF55 planning criteria; tailored learning environments; museums and heritage buildings; pubs and clubhouses; and a wide range of other commercial projects. We also breathe new life into existing buildings with our impressive renovations and sensitive conservation works.
Our expertise in designing with ecological materials and technology, passive energy and healthy building systems allows us to bring sustainability to the core of our projects. We have a solid reputation for building conservation and work to listed buildings, and we are experienced in creating just the right relationship between contemporary interventions and their historic settings.
Through drawing on the quality and traditions of traditional landscape design we have developed our own distinctive contemporary style, often including bold form and colourful planting. We collaborate with furniture makers, ecologists and sculptors to ensure the highest standards for a strong identity and sense of place.
Our experience with community projects has shown that well-implemented landscape improvements can be a catalyst for regeneration, encouraging a sense of civic pride and further investment. The landscape services we offer include masterplanning, planting design, landscape assessment, garden design, woodland and estate management, and tree surveying.
