Why we practice
architecture.

We began working together in 1968. Every day, we make architecture that responds with spirit and ingenuity to the pressing challenges of our time: the need for sustainable design, quality housing, public spaces that reflect the community, and genuinecollaboration.

Athfield Architects

Our team is a close-knit group of specialists in architecture, interior design, urban planning and landscape architecture. Over the last half-century the practice has pioneered a sustainable approach to architecture through a strikingly wide and original range of work from urban masterplans, to public infrastructure, civic and cultural buildings, offices and workplaces, and privatehousing.
