Established in 1990 Manor Architects have built their reputation on delivering and adding value, irrelevant of scale or sector.

We begin every project by researching the best approaches. Once the client and ourselves are satisfied with the proposed strategy and concept, it then progresses to the design stage.
We ensure that everything, to the very last detail, is completed with efficient accuracy to meet the high standards we set ourselves and provide to our clients. Dependant on the project, this can be an involved process taking days or weeks.
Once the concept design and feasibility are complete, we then begin the detailed development stage. Dependant on the project, this may take a variety of forms, from detailed design information, condition reports, economic appraisals to visualizations. Whichever form, the outcomes provide the client with the necessary information to make informed decisions about cost and how to progress.
