Magnificent 7: Architects in the South Coast region

Magnificent 7: Architects in the South Coast region
13 March 2024

Architectural practices play a crucial role in the vibrant landscape of the South Coast region. Contributing significantly to urban planning, they ensure that new developments are both sustainable and fit with the area's distinctive character.  

The demand for environmentally conscious designs is met through innovative practices that effectively counter challenges like climate change and population growth. The work of the region’s architects is instrumental in fostering a sense of identity and community pride. 

As a part of the South Coast Property Awards 2024, we’re looking to crown the Architectural Practice of the Year. Sponsored by The Escape, this award will be presented to the practice that has most excelled either on one project or a series throughout the qualifying period. 

But with so many of these practices being responsible for some truly incredible work within the region, who will take home the trophy? We’ve put together a list of seven companies who could be in with a good chance: 

Western Design Architects 

One of the South West’s leading RIBA Chartered Architectural practices, Western Design Architects is a hugely respected name in the South Coast’s property community. Renowned for its particularly thorough approach to architectural design, the company has won more than 50 awards for its work. 

David James Architects & Partners Ltd 

Poole-based David James Architects & Partners Ltd is dead set on creating buildings that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also functional, sustainable, and adaptable to the needs of their users. Specialising in both contemporary and traditional designs, the company provides a wide range of services from feasibility studies to technical design. 

Footprint Architects 

For places to live, learn or simply be together, Footprint Architects is one of the South Coast’s leading designers of healthy, people-centered and genuinely sustainable buildings. Clearly passionate about responding to the climate emergency, the company is focusing on innovations such as low carbon designs and waste management solutions. 

Snug Architects 

Driven by a highly skilled team of some of the region’s most inspired property experts, Snug Architects’ mission is to ‘help you achieve yours’. Having grown significantly over the last two decades, the company’s entrepreneurial spirit has earned it a real reputation for excellence within the South Coast region and beyond. 

Ström Architects 

Specialising in producing the most incredible unique modern homes and luxury developments, Ström Architects is a Lymington-based practice with a global impact. Set apart by its Scandinavian heritage, the company has built many strong client relationships throughout the South Coast region since being founded in 2010. 

OB Architecture 

Seamlessly combining sustainable contemporary design with modern innovations, OB Architecture is driven to create homes that excite and inspire. Having produced everything from urban townhouses and coastal retreats to mountain chalets and country farmhouses, the company has one of the most impressive portfolios in the country. 

Favonius Architects 

Backed by 35 years of invaluable experience, Salisbury’s Favonius Architects offers an enormous array of services covering everything from outline proposals and building contract administration to pre-application enquiries and project legislation advice. Tailoring each project to suit the needs of its clients, the company is unwaveringly approachable and professional. 

With so many relentlessly hard-working practices contributing to the South Coast region’s thriving property sector, only one of them can be named the Architectural Practice of the Year. 

Think you’ve got what it takes to bring home the trophy?
